Ordinarily in September New Yorkers rivalry with Boston is heating up. Not this year. With the Red Sox 16 games back on the Yankees and neither the Patriots, Jets or Giants contending it might be time to focus on real estate and snag that second home on Nantucket you've been thinking about. Boston seems to be on pace to set new records this year despite fears of a national recession. Why? The biggest reason seems to be lack of real estate inventory in a market with strong job growth and continued strong job prospects. Boston may have experienced many of the same problems as New York City during the pandemic with the loss of live entertainment, restaurant, and tourism dollars but like New York is surging past pre-pandemic levels and attracting major new industries such as technology. I think one advantage Boston has always had is the number of universities in the area and the concentration of advanced degrees.
What are the Boston real estate market predictions for 2022 and 2023? With steady job growth, huge gains in home equity, and a large population of millennials now in their peak homebuying years, it is predicted that the demand will stay strong, but sales are likely to be down from historic highs while price appreciation should fall to more modest levels.
Since the last decade (May 2012), the typical home value in Boston-Cambridge-Newton Metro has appreciated by nearly 91.4% (Zillow Home Value Index). Boston has several key advantages: low percentage price growth in 2021 relative to other metros, average loan-to-value rate of only 79 percent, low share of flipped homes and loss of population last year. The Boston housing market is very competitive. Homes in Boston receive 3 offers on average and sell in around 21 days. The average sale price of a home in Boston was $760K last month, up 7.0% since last year. The average sale price per square foot in Boston is $612, down 5.6% since last year.
