The housing market faced a lot of uncertainty when COVID-19 caused the real estate industry to pause under shut-downs, but low interest rates and the desire for more space have turned this year into a boom time for real estate agents.
“It’s been a circus, really,” said Anthony Lamacchia, Realtor and owner of Lamacchia Realty in the Boston suburbs. “Anything right outside of Boston is going like wildfire, but especially the single-family homes.”
Even though the average home sale price in Massachusetts is the highest it’s been in the last 10 years, Lamacchia said there are bidding wars everywhere and single-family homes are “just flying off the shelves.”
