Real Estate Market Update for Woburn, MA
Welcome to January's Market Update. Lets take a look at residential real-estate activity in your area during the month of December. The number of active listings was down 64% from one year earlier, and down 52% from the previous month.

Compared to last year, the average number of days units spent on the market before being sold was up 47%. This higher number of days may signal a slowdown in the local inventory-turnover rate.
