So, what is next?

This year started with a lower average price, which is common in the winter months.  Whether pushing the average past the $550,000 point or reverting closer to 2013 numbers remains to be seen.

At this moment there are 19 houses on the market, which gives an absorption rate of about 5 weeks, which is not much inventory.  (The absorption rate is the length of time it takes to sell all current inventory.  It is calculated using the last six month of sales data).  The average listing price of those houses is $615,900.  These two pieces of information lead me to believe there will be another spike in single family home prices in West Roxbury this year.
