Home sales fall
BOSTON - Sales of Massachusetts homes dropped 15.4 percent last month and recorded the lowest number in November since 1991, The Warren Group said yesterday.
The median price for a single-family home also slumped, falling 5.8 percent to $295,000, compared to $313,000 in November 2006, said The Warren Group, publisher of Banker & Tradesman.
The Warren Group said 3,538 homes were sold last month, down from 4,183 a year ago.
The November 2007 number was the first time since 1991 that November sales dipped below 3,600.
"Massachusetts' housing market remained in the doldrums during November, and it's not likely that December will bring much holiday cheer to home sellers," said Timothy Warren Jr., The Warren Group's chief executive officer.
In Worcester County, sales of single-family homes dropped 12.4 percent, to 470.
The median price in Worcester County declined 6.1 percent to $230,000.
