Let’s play a game. If you’ve made an offer on a house during the pandemic or even scrolled through listings in your dream neighborhood, you know that home prices just keep going up. But given a photo, the square footage, the ZIP code, and other factors, how accurately could you guess the list price of a home?
It’s no secret that the housing market in the past year and a half has seen record home prices and mortgage rates. The median price for a single-family home in the state surpassed $500,000 for the first time ever in April, according to The Warren Group, a real estate analytics firm. Massachusetts even claimed two spots on Realtor.com’s “10 Hottest ZIP Codes” — for Peabody and Milford. While some buyers are getting creative by building their own homes, others are arriving at open houses, checklist in hand, prepared for the highly competitive market.
Whether you have made a handful (or more) of offers over the past several months, sold your own home in a matter of days, or just taken a peek at an open house, we want to see how well you can guess the list price of these five Fall House Hunt homes for sale in Massachusetts.
Take our quiz below and let us know your thoughts and experiences when it comes to list prices.
