Another way to show the breakdown of Marblehead Single Family sales in 2012
Here’s another way to look at SFH sales in 2012:
First, by percentage. Note that the % of sales above $750k went up from 2011 to 2012, but that below $750k there was a marked shift from the $500-749k range to below $499k.
From 2010 to 2011 the numbers in each bracket went up by similar amounts: 7,5,5. But from 2011 to 2012, while the number in the $500-749k bracket was unchanged, there were increases of 26 under $500k and 13 over $750k.
I hope the various tables help to reconcile the MLS median price with what was actually happening in the market.
