Somerville Real Estate Market Activity – June 2009

Welcome to the Somerville Real Estate Market Report

Welcome to the Somerville Real Estate Market Report

Before the month gets away from me let’s take a look back at the Somerville real estate market in June 2009.

Somerville Real Estate Market – Homes for Sale

282 residential properties were on the market in Somerville on June 30, 2009 ranging in price from $1 to $1,600,000.  The average days on market was 107. 

And yes – that low price is $1.  It appears to be a marketing technique – a condo that was on the market for about six weeks, originally priced at $329,000 and reduced in incremental drops to $307,000 was repriced at $1 a couple of weeks ago.  The listing suggests that buyers can “put a true value” on the condo but also notes that if you “come in with a strong offer this condo could be yours”.  Clearly despite the teaser price the seller is still looking for a reasonable price however he or she defines that.  And incidentally, the lowest “real” asking price for a home in Somerville is $115,000.
