Boston Condo Sales Triple In The First 75 Days of 2010

This article makes the case with sold statistics going back to 2007 that Boston Real
Estate as a market has probably put in a bottom.

Back On January 9th I wrote an article titled  "If You Wait For The All Clear Signal To Buy Your Boston Home You Missed the Bottom of the Boston Real Estate Market by About Six Months" and now the numbers are telling me that the bottom for Boston Real Estate passed by about six months ago.

It may be a short term bottom and the precursor of another leg down but I dont think so. As long as the GDP is expanding and the stock market has some traction I would not come to Boston looking for any steal deals. Sales tripled in Boston Condos in the first 75 days of 2010 when making the easy comparison to the disastrous 2009 but they still doubled over 2008 and are up close to 50 percent from 2007

One of my favorite sayings I learned in my 5 years as a stock trader is "You Gotta Buy Em When They Hate" Well I think the time that they hate Boston Condos has come and gone. Although I usually eschew market predictions but barring any disastrous exogenous events I have to say that I think we have just put a bottom in on the Boston Real Estate Market.
