Marblehead Housing Market Q1 2021 Review

The median price of Single Family Homes (SFH) sold in Q1 2021 increased 10.5% to $765,000, well below the $839,900 in the second half of 2020. But Q1 can often be an anomaly because of the small number of sales.
SFH sales were 32 compared with 31 in 2020.
There were just 10 Condo sales in Q1 2021, compared with 9 in Q1 2020. Condo sales occurred between $260,000 and $599,000. 6 of the 2021 sales occurred below list price, 2 at list and 2 above list price.
