MAR Debuts Future Indicators Report

The Massachusetts Association of REALTORS® (MAR) announced the results of its first Future Indicators Report today for the month of May. This report is a combination of our previous Pending Homes Sales and the REALTOR® Confidence Indexes data into one succinct monthly document. Look out for the new Future Indicators Report the second Tuesday of every month.

Here are the May 2014 Highlights

Pending home sales:

  • Single-family pending home sales were up 7.2% compared to May 2013
  • Single-family median price up 7.4% from May 2013 (to $349,000)
  • Condo pending home sales were up 3.7% compared to May 2013
  • Condo median price up 8.6% compared to May 2013 (to  $315,000)
  •  15th straight month of single-family year-over-year increases.
  • The most homes put under agreement in May since MAR has been tracking this data.

REALTOR® Market and Price Confidence Indexes:

Confidence Index
May 2014
May 2013
% Change
 Market  67.73  83.08  -19%
 Price  76.58  81.95  -7.0%
  • The seventh straight month that the RMCI has gone down.
  • The fourth straight month that the RMCI has been over the 60-point mark.
  • The 15th straight month the RPCI was over the 70-point mark.
  • Measured on a 100-point scale, a score of 50 is the midpoint between a “strong” (100 points) and a “weak” (0 points) market condition.

Monthly ‘Hot Topic’ Question: 
In response to the monthly “Hot Topic” question, 55 percent of REALTORS® who responded, reported that continued low inventory had increased buyer attendance at open houses.
