December Home Sales in Massachusetts Up 10%, Prices up 3%

This strong finish to the year is welcome news after a slow fall which resulted in November home sales being down 3% in MA and over 6% nationally many began to think that housing may be heading back down in the gutter again.  These December numbers show that the fall slowdown was simply a slight step back.
