Only One House For Sale in Swampscott under $2 million

The shortage of inventory has been a major topic of conversation both locally and nationally for some time now, but the current situation in Swampscott is extreme.

There are just 5 Single Family Homes for sale (MLS shows 6 but one is listed as both SFH and Condo and is actually a Condo legally). Of those 5 , one is listed at $1.75 million, one at $2.8 million, one at $2.9 million, one at $3.5 million and one at $6.5 million.

Such is the supply/demand equation that when houses at lower prices – and some at higher prices – do come on the market a bidding war breaks out.

Thus, if you may be thinking of selling in the spring, you may want to consider taking advantage of the current market drought and list now, especially with mortgage rates having increased quite sharply from the recent extraordinary lows.

Team Harborside is the leading team for sales on the North Shore and we would delighted to offer you an opinion of the current valuation of your property.
