Concord’s high-end real estate market
Those who grew up in Concord have witnessed the evolution of the real estate market over the past decades. And with the housing market experiencing a shortage of inventory due to the pandemic, those prices have risen further over the past year.
White says she thinks it’s because Concord has maintained many conservation areas, while being close to town for commuters.
Concord has intensified dramatically over the past couple of years, not necessarily because of the pandemic, but as people think about the space they want and can be close to the mountains, the beach and the Boston community, ”White said. “But the main attraction of Concord is of course the history, the artistic community, the intellectual community, so people move here for that, but also to be able to enjoy a spectacular house with access to the trails from their backyard. court.”
According to the NeighborhoodScout.com website, the median value of Concord homes is $ 960,607, and more than half of Concord homes are valued at $ 1 million or more. White says it’s a big change from his childhood at Concord.
“Concord has really entered the luxury market in a way that the other cities around us haven’t,” White said. “We absolutely see activity at this price point.”
But with the sale of such a grand home, it takes a little longer to find the right buyer, White said. Care must be taken to determine who LandVest is targeting with its marketing campaigns, versus a moderately priced home that more people can afford.
“It might not fly off the market like something in the middle or lower market, but we have buyers at Concord looking for it. It takes a little longer or more patience and more planning,” White said. .
