Boston Real Estate in April: Sales Up 35% YoY, Inventory Up 9% YoY

Note: Remember sales were weak in April 2020 due to the pandemic.  I’m tracking data for many local markets around the U.S. I think it is especially important to watch inventory this year.

For Boston (single family and condos):

Closed sales in April 2021 were 2,226, up 34.5% from 1,655 in April 2020.
Active Listings in April 2021 were 3,788, up 9.3% from 3,467 in April 2020.  
Inventory in April was up 18.0% from last month.
