Posted April 20, 2019 09:18:01 New research published in the journal PLOS ONE shows that the number of newly constructed homes sold in Massachusetts fell slightly in 2018.
Massachusetts is the most populous state in the country and home to a number of important industries, such as the pharmaceutical industry and universities.
The researchers analysed the sales data from the Massachusetts Real Estate Board (MREB), the state’s real estate agency, to find out how many new homes were sold in the first quarter of 2019.
The team found that the decline in sales was mostly a result of the recession and the housing recovery.
Massachusett, which has seen a huge number of new construction in recent years, is still experiencing the effects of the housing crash, and the decline is largely due to the fact that it has not recovered quickly enough from the recession.
The MREB, however, does not have a national real estate index, so the researchers looked at sales data for all 50 states.
They looked at a wide range of industries, including real estate and health care.
They found that there was a big fall in sales of new homes in Massachusetts between April 2018 and April 2019, but it is still very high.
For example, sales of houses in Massachusett fell from 6.8 per cent in the third quarter of 2018 to 3.5 per cent.
In fact, they found that in the second quarter of this year, sales in the state were up 4.5 percentage points, with a big drop in new homes sold.
That said, the state has still managed to build enough homes for all its residents.
Massesachusetts also saw a big increase in the number and size of new home sales in 2018 compared to 2017.
However, the number dropped from a record high of 3,979,000 in the fourth quarter of 2017 to 2,826,000 this year.
The drop in sales could be attributed to the recession, but also to the housing market recovery.
The authors argue that this is not the case in most other states.
“This suggests that the recent decline in Massachusetts is unlikely to be a result only of the recessions,” they wrote.
“We find that the current downturn may have had a more negative effect on the market, which may be related to the ongoing recovery.”
Massachusetts has seen some recent developments in the real estate market, such a surge in home prices.
In 2017, prices were up by over 40 per cent, compared to a 2.8-per-cent jump in the national average, which was caused by an increase in demand for housing.
