For those of you who love market stats, here’s the August 2019 Curlett Report for Weston MA Real Estate.

August 2019 began with 100 active* properties on the market. During the course of the next 31 days, 7 new** listings came on the market, and 16 properties went pending** (Contingent or Under Agreement). We ended the month with 86 listings, an average list price of $3,183,189, and an average days on market (DOM) of 156.

Looking back a year, August 2018 began with 80 active* properties on the market. During the course of the month, 7 new** listings came on the market, and 10 properties went pending**. We ended the month with 77 listings, an average list price of $3,689,827, and an average DOM of 176.

To summarize a few key points:

  • As has been the case since March, our inventory this August was up from last year’s at both the start and the end of the month. We started August 2019 with an inventory that was up 25% from August 2018 and finished the month up 12%.

  • In August 2019, we netted out the month with a 14% decrease in inventory (100 to 86 properties), and in August 2018, the decrease in inventory was just 4% (80 to 77 listings).

  • Our average list price was down 14% at the end of this August vs. last ($3,183,189 vs. $3,689,827). The average DOM was down 11% this August vs. last (156 vs. 176 days). This is a positive indicator as it means properties were on the market for fewer days.

  • This August we had the same number of new listings (7) and more pending properties as compared to last year (16 in 2019 and 10 in 2018). So the number of new listings was flat August 2019 vs. August 2018, and pendings were up 60% this year from last. For the “411” on these numbers, typcially August isn’t a month with a high number of new listings as buyers and sellers are still enjoying the last summer days before back to school time. This was certainly the case this year and last. But our pendings were quite high this August. This could have been attributable to 2019’s higher inventory numbers - and more competitive properties - with which sellers have had to contend resulting in their being more motivated to get their properties under agreement before the onslaught of fresh, new listings that come with the Fall market starting in early September.

  • In August 2019 and 2018, the majority of the new and pending properties were priced below $2M. And 3 of the 16 new listings (19%) that came on in August 2019 also went pending.

  • The Weston market has always had a high percentage of its inventory priced above $3M. In fact, historically these high-end listings (above $3M) have accounted for 40% or more of the inventory. But this year, that has not always been the case. In August 2019, 35% of the inventory was above $3M, whereas it was 43% in August 2018. And in July 2019, it was 36% vs. 40% in July 2018. Will this be a trend or just a temporary blip - TBD?!

iStock-960624866.jpg

To summarize a few key points:

  • Our inventory this March was slightly more than last year’s at the start of the month and significantly more at the end of the month.

  • In March 2019, we netted out the month with a 35% increase in inventory (62 to 84 properties), and in March 2018, there was a 2% decrease in inventory (61 to 60 listings).

Last year’s decrease in inventory from the beginning to the end of the month was completely atypical.

  • Our average list price was down 24% at the end of this March vs. last March ($3,061,415 vs. $4,040,998). The average DOM was down 28% this March vs. last (129 vs. 178 days).

Curlett Report for Weston, MA Real Estate - February 2019

iStock-835470888.jpg

For those of you who love market stats, here’s the February 2019 Curlett Report for Weston MA Real Estate.

We began February 2019 with 46 active* properties on the market. During the course of the next 28 days, 17 new** listings came on the market, and 7 properties went pending** (Contingent or Under Agreement). We ended the month with 61 listings, an average list price of $3,303,236, and an average days on market (DOM) of 152.

To summarize a few key points:

  • Our inventory in February this year was less than what it was last year at the beginning of the month, but the opposite was true at the end of the month. The trend we’ve seen for the last several months is an inventory count that has been down in the current year from the previous one at both the beginning and end of the month. But not this month! We started February 2019 with an inventory that was down 10% from February 2018 but finished it up 2%.

  • In February 2019, we netted out the month with a 33% increase in inventory (46 to 61 properties), and in February 2018, there was a 18% rise in inventory (51 to 60 listings). These percentage increases are typical for the month of February as the Spring market gets underway.

  • Our average list price was down 6% at the end of this February vs. last February ($3,303,236 vs. $3,449,481). The average DOM was down 20% this February vs. last (152 vs. 190 days).

In February 2019, there were 17 new and 7 pending properties, whereas in February 2018, there were 19 new and 16 pending properties. So the number of new listings was down 11% and pendings were down a significant 56% this year from last. The new inventory this year was more skewed toward the higher end (above $2M) than it was last year, which was also the case in January. Specifically this year, 35% of the new listings were priced below and 65% were priced above $2M. Last year, those numbers were the opposite with 58% of the new listings priced below and 42% priced above $2M. In terms of the pending listings, the majority were priced below $2M this February and last, though more strikingly last year (57% in 2019 vs. 75% in 2018).
