  • Mass. home sales rise 8% in Sept.

    The Boston Globe - 10/26/2012

    Sales of single-family homes and condominiums kept climbing in Massachusetts last month as more buyers decided to take advantage of historically low interest rates, ­according to numbers released Thursday.

    There were 3,791 single-family homes sold in September, an 8 percent increase compared with the same month last year, according to Warren Group, a Boston company that tracks local real estate. Between January and September, single-family home sales rose nearly 22 percent compared with the same period in 2011.

    Some local housing specialists are raising the possibility of a slowdown in sales over the next few months. Alan ­Clayton-Matthews, an economist at Northeastern University, said that an increase in the state jobless rate and the struggling economy could put a damper on the market.
