Single-family searches soaring
The search for privacy has officially begun. Single-family homes away from densely populated areas are gaining in popularity among Boston-area shoppers.1 Check it out:
- Of the saved searches by Redfin.com users in May, there was a six-percentage point increase in searches for single-family homes in the Boston metro area since February.
- Nationally, 36% of Redfin’s saved searches were aimed at single-family homes. That’s up 33% since February.
- Meanwhile, searches for townhouses, condos, and multi-family homes declined. In May, just 7.5% of saved searches excluded single-family homes, the lowest level in three years.
