"The housing market continues to boom locally, and nationally," said The Warren Group CEO Timothy M. Warren Jr. "As long as mortgage rates and home prices don't spike too high, we'll see a very strong recovery year for the market in 2013." Year-to-date home sales statewide are up 0.12 percent. From January to June, a total of 21,659 single-family homes have sold, compared to 21,633 during the same period a year ago. For the ninth consecutive month, year-over-year home prices increased.

Quarterly prices increased more than 10 percent to $330,000, up from $299,700 during the second quarter 2012. "No monthly median price had been this high for any month since August 2007. Buyers have come out to the market in droves and aggressive bidding is driving up prices. While not a problem at this juncture, I hope for more modest increases in the future," Warren added. "We don't want to see prices rise to the point where home ownership becomes unaffordable." Bay State condominium sales dropped in June, decreasing more than 3 percent from a year earlier. A total of 2,189 condos sold in June, down from 2,261 a year earlier. Year-to-date condo sales are up almost 2 percent to 8,750 from 8,609 a year earlier.

The year-to-date median price of condos in the Bay State is $284,000, up more than 3 percent from $275,000 a year ago. - See more at:

The average days on the market for the 108 homes sold was 111, compared to 147 in 2009.
