Marblehead house receives over 30 offers

Perhaps you are hoping that the housing market will slow down in the winter months, or that new inventory will help to meet the demand.

Well, as they say, not so fast.

A house was listed in Marblehead recently for $445,000. A Cape on an 8,600 sf lot overlooking a wooded area.

There were more than 30 offers submitted. Yep, 30.

This chart shows just how low inventory is currently.


The message remains: if you want to buy a house in this market, you must have at least a current pre-approval letter from a lender, and you must be working with an agent who will represent your interests.
