July 31, 2018, WALTHAM, Mass. — This month’s Pro Teck Valuation Services Home Value Forecast examines the seemingly positive impact marijuana-legalization is having on housing markets across the country.
According to recent studies, the legalization of retail sales of marijuana is having a positive impact on home values. Looking at our Top 10 data, sale prices increased by an average of 10% across the nine metros from marijuana-legal states. Across other market statistics, such as Months Remaining Inventory, Active Price Change, and Days on Market, these pro-pot markets are all trending up.
In this month’s report, we look at just how mariuana might be spurring this growth, and what the implications are for future weed-friendly markets.
“Marijuana is being viewed less as a ‘blight’ on society, and more as positive investment opportunity – which is being reflected in housing market data, ”said Tom O’Grady, CEO of Pro Teck.
