Here are the Weston MA Homes Sold in March 2019. Let’s suffice it to say - Not Even Close when comparing the March 2019 metrics with those of March 2018. All of the figures were down across the board and fairly significantly this year vs. last. Here are the details:

  • Number of Sold Properties – 4 in March 2019 vs. 15 in March 2018

  • Total Market Volume – $5,440,000 in March 2019 vs. $30,428,999 in March 2018

  • Median Price – $1,400,000 in March 2019 vs. $1,585,000 in March 2018

  • Average Sale Price – $1,360,000 in March 2019 vs. $2,028,600 in March 2018

In terms of year to date sales (through March 31), I think we can guess the results. As was the case when comparing month to month this year vs. last, our year-to-date figures were down on all counts as well. Here are the specifics:

  • Number of Sold Properties – 21 in 2019 vs. 37 in 2018 - down 43% this year from last (it was down 23% in the February report)

  • Total Market Volume – $38,207,300 in 2019 vs. $81,887,999 in 2018 - down 53% this year from last (it was down 36% in the February report)

  • Median Price – $1,487,500 in 2019 vs. $1,775,000 in 2018 - down 16% this year from last (it was up 16% in the February report)

  • Average Sale Price – $1,819,395 in 2019 vs. $2,213,189 in 2018 - down 18% this year from last (it was also down 18% in the February report)

There was one land sale in March 2019 - 55 Hidden Road, comprising 1.96 acres, sold for $2,400,000. On a positive note, our 2019 year-to-date land sales (through March 31) were significantly higher than those of 2018. While there were two land sales in both years, the market volume, median price and average sale price were up 87% this year from last.

Weston MA Homes Sold February 2019

iStock-604335710.jpg

Here are the Weston MA Homes Sold for February 2019. The 2019 results as compared to those from 2018 were better in February than they were in January. All of the metrics were up this year from last with the exception of median price. Here are the details:

  • Number of Sold Properties – 9 in February 2019 vs. 8 in February 2018

  • Total Market Volume – $15,370,000 in February 2019 vs. $12,735,000 in February 2018

  • Median Price – $1,325,000 in February 2019 vs. $1,680,000 in February 2018

  • Average Sale Price – $1,707,778 in February 2019 vs. $1,591,875 in February 2018

In terms of year to date sales (through February 28), our figures are still mostly down this year from last but less so. As you may remember, our January 2019 figures were markedly down from those of January 2018, but this February’s sales were slightly up from last year. And this had an effect on the metrics, including the percentage differentials. Here are the specifics:

  • Number of Sold Properties – 17 in 2019 vs. 22 in 2018 - down 23% this year from last (it was down 43% in my last report)

  • Total Market Volume – $32,767,300 in 2019 vs. $51,459,000 in 2018 - down 36% this year from last (it was down 55% in my last report)

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 2019 – 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 November 2018

iStock-508099206.jpg

Here are the Weston MA Homes Sold November 2018. Similar to the results in October, it was another strong month of sales. And so once again, all of the metrics were up in November 2018 vs. November 2017. Here are the details:

  • Number of Sold Properties – 16 in November 2018 vs. 13 in November 2017

  • Total Market Volume – $31,218,500 in November 2018 vs. $17,817,750 in November 2017

  • Median Price – $1,285,000 in November 2018 vs. $1,049,000 in November 2017

  • Average Sale Price – $1,951,156 in November 2018 vs. $1,370,596 in November 2017

In terms of year-to-date sales (through November 30), because of our strong October and November 2018 results, all of the metrics were up - except for number of sold properties - when compared to those of 2017. Furthermore, given the strong November sales numbers, we see a positive uptick across the board in our percentage differentials since last month. Here are the specifics:

  • Number of Sold Properties – 154 in 2018 vs. 168 in 2017 – down 8% this year (it was down 11% in last month’s report)

  • Total Market Volume – $298,212,966 in 2018 vs. $282,685,992 in 2017 – up 5% this year (it was up 1% in last month’s report)

  • Median Price – $1,562,500 in 2018 vs. $1,392,500 in 2017 – up 12% this year (it was up 10% in last month’s report)

  • Average Sale Price – $1,936,448 in 2018 vs. $1,682,655 in 2017 – up 15% this year (it was up 13% in last month’s report)

There weren't any land sales in November 2018.

Curlett Report - October 2018

For sale Blue 3D houses.jpg

Welcome to the premier edition of The Curlett Report – a Weston MA Market Snapshot for the month of October 2018. This report chronicles the single-family home new listing and pending activity as well as the starting and closing inventory numbers for October 2018 in the Weston MA Real Estate Market. It also compares these figures to those from a year ago in October 2017....

We began October 2018 with 77 active* properties on the market. During the course of the next 31 days, 17 new** listings came on the market, and 15 properties went pending** (Contingent or Under Agreement). We ended the month with 78 listings, an average list price of $3,050,267, and an average days on market (DOM) of 170.

Looking back a year, October 2017 began with 93 active properties on the market. During the course of the month, 13 new listings came on the market, and 16 properties went pending. We ended the month with 85 listings, an average list price of $3,095,077 and an average DOM of 203.

To summarize a few key points:

  • Our inventory in October this year was less than what it was last year - both at the beginning and at the end of the month. From last year, we were down 17% at the start of the month and down 8% at the end of the month.

  • In October 2018, we netted out the month with a 1% increase in inventory (77 to 78 properties), but in October 2017, there was a 9% decline in inventory (93 to 85 listings). Both of these percentages are fairly typical for the month of October given that it’s not as strong of a month as September and starts to signal a slower time as we head toward the holidays and the events and craziness therein.

  • Our average list price was down 1% this October vs. October 2017 ($3,050,267 vs. $3,095,077) and average DOM was down 16% (170 vs. 203).

  • This year we had much more high-end new and pending activity in the month of October than we did during the same time last year. In October 2018, there were 8 new and 9 pending properties over $2M, whereas in October 2017, there were only 2 new and 2 pending properties over $2M. Interestingly, however, despite those differences, we ended October 2018 and October 2017 with the same percentage of remaining properties (60%) over $2M. Looking at the other price ranges, although our percentage of remaining properties under $1M was higher in October 2018 (11%) than it was in October 2017 (8%), it was lower in October 2018 (29%) than it was in October 2017 (32%) for remaining properties between $1M and $2M.

* Active properties do not include condominiums, land listings or properties listed multiple ways on MLS. 

** New listings do not include those re-listed within 60 days, and pending listings do not include those that were previously reported as pending in the last 60 days but came back on the market because of the deal falling through.

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

  • 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.

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)

  • Average Sale Price – $1,883,677 in 2018 vs. $1,604,998 in 2017 – up 10% this year (it was up 17% in last month’s report)

There weren’t any land sales in September 2018.
