Mass. housing market continues to recover

Sale rates and prices both surge in May

The Massachusetts housing market continued its rebound in May as the median sale price for single-family homes jumped at double-digit rates and sales reached heights not seen since 2006, according to data released Tuesday.

Home sales climbed 6 percent from May 2012, while the median home price increased by nearly 12 percent to $324,500, according to the Warren Group, a Boston company that tracks local real estate. It was the fourth consecutive month of double-digit price increases.
