The housing market in Massachusetts is down year over year for the first time in awhile.
The state Association of Realtors says closed sales for single-family homes and condominiums dropped nearly 12-percent year-over-year from January of last year.
The month also saw the lowest number of single-family homes for sale in January since data reporting started in 2004.
There was also a three-percent increase in the median price for single-family homes and condos compared to last year.
