Realtors are feeling better about the Massachusetts real estate market than they were a year ago, the Massachusetts Association of Realtors announced today.

In June, the Realtor Market Index was 29.17, up 2.8 percent from June 2010. This is the first year-over-year increase since May 2010, the association said in a news release.

The Realtor Price Index in June was 38.30, down 18.2 percent from the June 2010.

The Market Index and Price Index are based on monthly responses from a random sampling of members of the Massachusetts Association of Realtors.

The survey also asked how Realtors felt about a proposal that would require a 20 percent down payment to obtain a qualified residential mortgage. Realtors overwhelmingly are concerned about the measure, the association reported: 96 percent said it would have a negative impact.
