This seems correct based on what we have learned so far. As there are more non covalent interactions between molecules, the intermolecular bonds become stronger, causing more stability and higher boiling points.
One way to think about it is that with more bonds and/or with stronger bonds, you need to supply more energy to break said bonds. That is why with something like a boiling point, the compound needs to be at a much higher temperature if it has a lot of strong bonds because it requires more energy to be able to break all those bonds and release a molecule into its gaseous state.
