Pricing your home properly is more important than ever
See why here

This month's market data, based on March 2022 stats, inventory, while still very low, was more on par with 2021. We continued to see increased sales prices, though a lower number of total sales. The sales to list price ratio remained well over 100 in all of our market areas. Days to offer also continue to be quite low, with an average of 26 days to offer across our service areas. With inventory being so low, the average stats can be greatly influenced by a single transaction in a particular city or town.

Ipswich

Ipswich saw more inventory hit the market in 2022 than it did in 2021. Although the average sales price was down from 2021, the sales to list price ratio was much higher at 106. This shows us that the reason that the average sales price was down was because the average list price was not as high as 2021, but the homes that hit the market sell well over asking price.
