A recent article on the popular real estate website Curbed stated that in the month of May almost 65% of all sales in downtown Boston went for over asking price. Also, in the nine major market areas throughout the city that were part of the study, 19 of these sales went for more than $100,000 over the seller’s asking price. In surrounding communities such as Cambridge and Somerville as high as 90% of sales went for asking price or above. While it is not new news it is still very clear that there is a severe shortage of available property throughout the city and in surrounding locations. The market continues to get stronger and stronger as time goes on with demand at a seemingly all-time high.
