Busy day at Registry of Deeds

The last day of June was historically one of the busiest days of the year at the registry of deeds for a number of reasons: the last day of the month is always busy; many people hold off on moving into new homes until after school is out; and some entities have a July to June fiscal year. Thanks to the real estate slump, however, the past few June 30ths have been like any other day recording volume-wise. That changed today for we had the busiest last day of June since 2003 in the early days of the real estate boom. Here are the document recording totals for the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds for the last day of June for the past decade:

2003 – 922
2004 – 756
2005 – 716
2006 – 713
2007 – 628
2009 – 484
2010 – 301
2011 – 394
2012 – 793

It would be widely premature to declare the real estate slump over, but today’s level of activity stands out from recent years and is certainly a positive indicator.

    More friends are pregnant too! Now at our ages, either you use it or lose it.
    For the past three years I’ve had no one to pass down any of our baby stuff.
