Globe North reports uptick in home sales

This Sunday's "North" section of the Boston Globe reported an uptick in home sales in August compared to the statistics from August 2010.  Recordings here at Middlesex North corroborated that trend with overall deed recordings for August 2011 up 14% from the number recorded in August 2010.  That trend continued into September, with the 2011 deeds for that month up 10% over the same month in the previous year.  The year-to-date numbers through September which include a relatively slow period back in the spring show an overall decline, with the January to September 2011 figures for deeds 4% less than those from the same period in 2010.

I did look at the number of deeds recorded for each of the towns in the Middlesex North District for September of this year and last:

Town         Sept 2010 deeds      Sept 2011 deeds
Billerica              66                            54
Carlisle               13                             8
Chelmsford         56                           80
Dracut                42                           44
Dunstable             2                             3
Lowell                98                          139
Tewksbury          38                            55
Tyngsborough      23                            16
Westford             43                            44
Wilmington          41                            25
