Real Estate Market Update for 01844 (Methuen, MA)
Welcome to December's Market Update. Let’s take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of November. The number of active listings was down 34% from one year earlier, and down 23% from the previous month.

Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 2%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate.
