Best Spring Market in Massachusetts since 2004!

The early returns are out on the spring market. And the sales numbers are looking surprisingly strong, new stats out this morning show.

The best in a decade, in fact.

Pending sales of single-family homes in Massachusetts rose 15 percent this March compared to March, 2013, the Massachusetts Association of Realtors reports.

The 5,185 homes put under agreement were the highest for any March since 2004, according to MAR.

Pending condo sales jumped 7.3 percent, to 2,183 units, the most since March 2006.

The median price of home put under agreement hit $314,000, an 8.3 percent increase over March 2013, while condo prices were close to catching up, surpassing $304,000 after a 12.8 percent surge.

Now it's still early in the season - we still had snow on the ground a week ago. After all, if this were election night, it would be just after 8 p.m., when the early returns are starting to roll in.

Still, while there are not nearly enough listings of homes for sale to meet current demand, buyers are plunging ahead anyway and bidding up what's there, or at least the half decent properties that are not outrageously priced.

"Move-in condition" is the buzzword right now among brokers - buyers are willing to pay up instead of buying a house in need of work that no one thinks they have the time to do anymore.

Happy house hunting!
