Essex County Mid-Year 2021 Market Report
The real estate market in Essex County continued to boom in the first half 2021 (H1 2021), with multiple offers the norm for most properties. The COVID-inspired slowdown in the second quarter of 2020 impacted sales – which were delayed – rather than prices. Thus, while Year- on- Year (YOY) increases in sales are from an artificially low base, the increase in median prices is real.
The median SFH price in H1 2021 broke through $600,000, just a year after reaching $500,000 for the first time.
In H1 2021 only 5 of the 34 cities and towns – Amesbury, Lynn, Methuen, Haverhill and Lawrence – had a median SFH price under $500,000, while 16 had median prices above $750,000. Every town except Middleton saw double digit increases YOY, while Marblehead was the only town where the H1 2021 median SFH price was lower than in H1 2020.
The median condo price increased more modestly, increasing by “only” 12.1% YOY to $379,000.
