For the second consecutive month, the number of single-family homes for sale in Massachusetts fell below 10,000 in January. It marked a record low for the month, which typically is a slow time in the real estate business.

Single-family home sales in January were slightly down — 1.2 percent — compared with the same period last year, while the median price jumped 4 percent to $369,000, according to the Massachusetts Association of Realtors.
