East Boston Showing Shortage of Available Single-Family Homes

According to June MLS data, East Boston is showing a sudden shortage of single-family properties on the market. Currently, there are 12 available single-families in East Boston. Only one of those properties is bank owned—a slanted, 1,248 square foot colonial with parking at 210 Havre Street for $83,900. Another is a short sale.

The remaining properties, offered by regular sellers, range from an adorable 937 square foot fixer-upper at 19 Haynes Street for $159,000 to a 2,802 square foot Eagle Hill Victorian built by shipbuilder Donald McKay at 56 Putnam Street. Its price is $374,900. There are currently 7 single-family homes for sale between $200,000 and $300,000 in East Boston, ranging from Orient Heights to Eagle Hill.

June was a busy month, with offers accepted on single-family homes on Saratoga, Eutaw, Bennington, Horace, and Wordworth Streets. Another was accepted on Murray Court. Varying in condition, these properties were all priced right, with 3 of them priced over $200,000, and four of them priced under $200,000. There currently seem to be more qualified buyers than available properties in the single-family market.
