Weston MA Homes Sold January 2019

iStock-877109024.jpg

Here are the Weston MA Homes Sold in January 2019. By most standards, the January 2019 sold numbers would be considered strong BUT not when compared to those of January 2018! Last year, six of the 14 properties (43%) that sold in January were above $3 million. In fact two of those six sold at or above $5M (one at $5M and the other at $7.5M). The bottom line is that those results are hard to beat. Here are the details:

  • Number of Sold Properties – 8 in January 2019 vs. 14 in January 2018 - down 43% this year from last

  • Total Market Volume – $17,397,300 in January 2019 vs. $38,724,000 in January 2018 - down 55% this year from last

  • Median Price – $2,505,000 in January 2019 vs. $1,787,500 in January 2018 - up 40% this year from last

  • Average Sale Price – $2,174,663 in January 2019 vs. $2,766,000 in January 2018 - down 21% this year from last

There was one land sale in January 2018 – 47 Ash Street consisting of 4.5 acres for $1,900,000.

As I always say at this time of the year, this is the only time when our monthly sold information is the exact same as our year-to-date sold information (as of January 31). So this report will be shorter and sweeter than most of the others. On that note, though we’re a month into 2019, I want to wish you the best for the New Year. Here’s to peace, love, fun, good health, prosperity - and a strong real estate market too!

Weston MA Homes Sold December 2018 ~ And Year-End Analysis ~

iStock-628601806.jpg

Here are the Weston MA Homes Sold for December 2018. Wow - interesting way to end the year. We were down on all counts as compared to the metrics of December 2017 - something we only experienced once this year and that was in September. And so, unfortunately, it wasn’t a strong close to 2018. Here are the details:

  • Number of Sold Properties – 9 in December 2018 vs. 18 in December 2017

  • Total Market Volume – $15,131,500 in December 2018 vs. $31,957,900 in December 2017

  • Median Price – $1,350,000 in December 2018 vs. $1,577,500 in December 2017

  • Average Sale Price – $1,681,278 in December 2018 vs. $1,775,439 in December 2017

Our lackluster December 2018 sales figures had a marked effect on our year-to-date numbers and how we netted out for the year. Throughout most of 2018, our metrics were up from those of 2017 with the exception of number of sold properties, which has been down consistently since August. But given the December 2018 results, both number of sold properties and total market volume were down this year from last. (Note that total market volume was down - but just barely so.) It’s not a surprise that the percentage differentials fell across the board too. But on the good news front, median and average sale price were both up. Here are the specifics:

  • Number of Sold Properties – 163 in 2018 vs. 186 in 2017 – down 12% this year (it was down 8% in last month’s report)

  • Total Market Volume – $313,344,466 in 2018 vs. $314,643,892 in 2017 – down 0.41% this year (it was up 5% in last month’s report)

  • Median Price – $1,537,500 in 2018 vs. $1,397,500 in 2017 – up 10% this year (it was up 12% in last month’s report)

  • Average Sale Price – $1,922,359 in 2018 vs. $1,691,634 in 2017 – up 14% this year (it was up 15% in last month’s report)

There weren't any land sales in December 2018.

Although December 2018 wasn’t a strong close to the year, producing a downward effect of on the year-to-date numbers, I’d like to offer a bit of perspective. First and foremost, while our number of sold properties and total market volume were down in 2018 from 2017, we were still at record level highs. The total market volume in 2018 was only $1,299,426 less than the 2017 number (a decrease of 0.41%), which amounts to the sale of approximately one house - at least in the Weston market with an average sale price of $1,922,359. And this leads to my next point…. Our average sale price of $1,922,359 and median price of $1,537,500 were higher in 2018 than they’ve ever been in the history of Weston real estate! One other piece of good news for 2018 was that our days on market (DOM) and days to offer (DTO) were 130 and 87, respectively, and these numbers were lower than they’ve been since 2014.

It wouldn’t be right to close out my year-end home sales analysis without a brief look at how the Weston condominium and land markets fared in 2018 vs. 2017. Here is the synopsis:

Condominium Sales - 2018 vs. 2017 - down on all counts this year from last

  • Number of Sold Properties – 9* in 2018 vs. 16* in 2017 – down 44% this year

  • Total Market Volume – $10,114,500 in 2018 vs. $24,128,100 in 2017 – down 58% this year

  • Median Price – $615,000 in 2018 vs. $1,112,500 in 2017 – down 45% this year

  • Average Sale Price – $1,123,833 in 2018 vs. $1,508,006 in 2017 – down 25% this year

Land Sales - 2018 vs. 2017 - up on most counts this year from last

  • Number of Sold Properties – 7 in 2018 vs. 7 in 2017 – the same in 2018 and 2017

  • Total Market Volume – $8,036,000 in 2018 vs. $6,912,500 in 2017 – up 16% this year

  • Median Price – $1,250,000 in 2018 vs. $1,000,000 in 2017 – up 25% this year

  • Average Sale Price – $1,148,000 in 2018 vs. $987,500 in 2017 – up 16% this year

On a final note, I’m sending you and your families my best wishes for a happy, peaceful, healthy and prosperous New Year filled with great times, tons of fun and so much love! Cheers!

*It should be noted that the stellar condominium sales results in 2017 were not only the result of the sheer volume of properties that sold but also because 8 of the 16 condominiums were part of the high-end, 55+ Highland Meadows development. In 2018, only 3 of the 9 condominiums that sold were part of Highland Meadows.

Weston MA Homes Sold October 2018

iStock-951957014.jpg

Here are the Weston MA Homes Sold in October 2018. As you’ll see from the report, it was a strong month of sales. And so it’s not a surprise that all of the metrics were up in October 2018 vs. October 2017. But that was not the case last month when the exact opposite happened, and all of the numbers in September 2018 were down vis-a-vis those in September 2017. Here are the details for October 2018 vs. October 2017:

  • Number of Sold Properties – 11 in October 2018 vs. 7 in October 2017

  • Total Market Volume – $27,767,500 in October 2018 vs. $12,086,000 in October 2017

  • Average Sale Price – $2,524,318 in October 2018 vs. $1,726,571 in October 2017

In terms of year-to-date sales (through October 31), because of our strong October 2018 results, all of the metrics were up except for number of sold properties when compared to 2017. The sale of 2 Laxfield for $9,200,000 certainly influenced the figures. Furthermore, given the strong October sales numbers, we see a mostly positive uptick in our percentage differentials since last month. Here are the specifics:

Weston MA Homes Sold September 2018

iStock-815188620.jpg

There was a total shift in September 2018 – one that we haven’t seen all year. We were down – and fairly significantly down – on all counts this September vs. last September. Here are the details:

  • Number of Sold Properties –  8 in September 2018 vs. 19 in September 2017

  • Total Market Volume – $15,100,000 in September 2018 vs. $45,737,500 in September 2017

  • Median Price – $1,149,500 in September 2018 vs. $1,670,000 in September 2017

  • Average Sale Price – $1,887,500 in September 2018 vs. $2,407,237 in September 2017

In terms of year-to-date sales (through September 30), despite the lackluster sales figures in September 2018, half of our metrics were still up this year from last. Specifically, number of sold properties and total market volume were down, but median and average sale prices were up. This is a first for us this year. In August, just the number of properties sold was down. But prior to that – from January through July – all of the metrics were up this year from last. Hmmm…. 🤔  It’s also not a surprise that the percentage differentials are continuing to fall as this has been the trend for most of the year. Here are the specifics:

  • Number of Sold Properties – 127 in 2018 vs. 148 in 2017 – down 14% this year (it was down 8% in last month’s report)

  • Total Market Volume – $239,226,966 in 2018 vs. $252,782,242 in 2017 – down 5% this year (it was up 8% in last month’s report)

Weston MA Homes Sold August 2018

iStock_39242210_LARGE.jpg

The twist that July 2018 brought us has resurfaced once again this month. The number of sold properties was down noticeably in August 2018 as compared to past years. The average number of sold properties in August 2015, 2016 and 2017 was 21. This year we only had 15 properties sell, which had a negative effect on the numbers. All of the metrics – except median price – were down in August 2018 vs. August 2017. Here are the details:

  • Number of Sold Properties –  15 in August 2018 vs. 28 in August 2017

  • Total Market Volume – $25,414,900 in August 2018 vs. $48,379,6252 in August 2017

  • Median Price – $1,655,000 in August 2018 vs. $1,467,500 in August 2017

  • Average Sale Price – $1,694,327 in August 2018 vs. $1,727,8444 in August 2017

In terms of year-to-date sales (through August 31), despite the low number of properties sold in August 2018 and the effects therein, our 2018 numbers were still mostly up from 2017 – just number of properties sold was down. That being said, this is the first time this year that all of our market indicators weren’t up across the board. Hmmm…. And it’s not a surprise that the percentage differentials decreased from those in July; this downward trend in the percentage differentials has been happening for the last six months. Here are the specifics:

  • Number of Sold Properties –  119 in 2018 vs. 129 in 2017 – down 8% this year (it was up 3% in last month’s report)

  • Total Market Volume – $224,126,966 in 2018 vs. $207,044,742 in 2017 – up 8% this year (it was up 25% in last month’s report)

  • Median Price – $1,575,000 in 2018 vs. $1,395,000 in 2017 – up 13% this year (it was up 15% in last month’s report)

  • Average Sale Price – $1,883,420 in 2018 vs. $1,604,998 in 2017 – up 17% this year (it was up 22% in last month’s report)

There were two land sales in August 2018 – 10 Sudbury Road comprising 1.69 acres sold for $675,000 and 11 Briar Lane comprising 1.38 acres sold for $1,250,000.

Weston MA Homes Sold July 2018

iStock_000048586830_Full.jpg

July 2018 brought us an interesting twist…. The number of sold properties was down significantly this year as compared to past years. The average number of sold properties in July 2015, 2016 and 2017 was 20. This year we only had 14 properties sell, and as you can imagine, this had a negative effect on the numbers. All of the metrics – except average sale price – were down in July 2018 vs. July 2017. Here are the details:

  • Number of Sold Properties –  14 in July 2018 vs. 20 in July 2017

  • Total Market Volume – $22,272,000 in July 2018 vs. $29,969,000 in July 2017

  • Median Price – $1,385,000 in July 2018 vs. $1,460,000 in July 2017

  • Average Sale Price – $1,590,857 in July 2018 vs. $1,498,450 in July 2017

In terms of year-to-date sales (through July 31), despite the low number of properties sold in July 2018 and the effects therein, our 2018 numbers continue to be up from 2017. But again – as has been the case since March – we’ve lost ground on the percentage differentials. And I’ll repeat myself by saying that 2018 is still up across the board from 2017 but the gaps are lessening, especially with the number of sold properties. Here are the specifics:

  • Number of Sold Properties –  104 in 2018 vs. 101 in 2017 – up 3% this year (it was up 11% in last month’s report)

  • Total Market Volume – $198,712,066 in 2018 vs. $158,665,117 in 2017 – up 25% this year (it was up 37% in last month’s report)

  • Median Price – $1,572,500 in 2018 vs. $1,372,000 in 2017 – up 15% this year (it was up 18% in last month’s report)

  • Average Sale Price – $1,910,693 in 2018 vs. $1,570,942 in 2017 – up 22% this year (it was up 23% in last month’s report)

There was one land sale in July 2018 – 20 Young Road comprising 1.89 acres sold for $1,725,000.

Weston MA Homes Sold June 2018

iStock_000018089189_Full.jpg

Although we had one less property sell in June 2018 vs. June 2017, all of the other metrics were up. Here are the details:

In terms of year-to-date sales (through June 30), I could write the exact same thing as I did last month, and so I will 😉…. Our 2018 numbers continue to be up from 2017.
