A new report from The Warren Group indicates that sales of single-family homes and condos in Bedford are trending in the same direction. 

According to the report, released Dec. 27, the number of single-family homes sold in Bedford in November 2012 increased slightly, from 8 to 10, while the median sales price decreased by 23.9 percent over 2011 sales. When it comes to condos: Sales are up 100 percent from 2011 to 2012, and the median sale price so far this year fell more than 8 percent. 

Overall, The Warren Group report indicates Massachusetts home sales in November posted the largest year-over-year percentage increase over 2011 and was the 11th consecutive month of gains, while home and condo prices leveled out across the commonwealth.

“We’re winding down a pretty strong year of real estate in Massachusetts,” said Timothy Warren, Jr., CEO of the Warren Group, in the press release. “It looks like sales will be the highest since 2006. We’re also seeing median prices start to creep up, another positive sign of a healthy market recovery.”
