2022 Outlook

The mid-year data for Braintree comes as no surprise as the Massachusetts market as a whole also shows similar trends – ultimately proving the market is changing and beginning to balance out. Sales have decreased in the Braintree area, predominantly caused by the effects of increased mortgage rates, while prices continue their ascent. However, price appreciation is expected to slow as we continue throughout the year given that inventory is still not high enough to cause a major price drop.
