Ashland MA Real Estate Market Analysis
Real Estate Analysis For 2013
In 2013 the Ashland Real Estate market had a very large increase in the number of sales compared to 2012. The real estate market in Ashland was very different than in previous years as was the case for numerous towns in the Metrowest area. The market in fact turned from a buyers market into a full fledged sellers market. What we saw was a market shaped by low inventory combined with exceptionally attractive interest rates.
The beginning of the 2013 real estate market was actually shaped by homes going under contract super fast and close to asking prices. In a number of cases there were homes that sold in the first couple of weeks they were for sale. In some circumstances buyers were under pressure to pay more than asking prices as multiple bidders on a property was not uncommon. The latter half of 2013 settled into a more balanced market.
Home inventory levels have been consistently below the averages of the last 4-5 years throughout the entire past year.
Low home inventory levels are always a good sign for those considering to sell their property as they typically will bring up housing prices. Moving into 2014 we are set up to see a very similar Spring market that we experienced last year. Inventory right now is at the lowest I have seen in my twenty seven years in the business.
For 2013 there were 153 sales. In 2012 there were only 129 so Ashland saw a significant jump in their sales volume.
Current 2014 Real Estate Analysis
We are now coming out of what is considered the best time of year to sell a home. So far this year the market has underperformed as compared to last year covering the same time period. This year we got off to a slow start but sales have increased quite a bit over the last few months. I would characterize the year so far as being much more normal. The amount of homes for sale is still on the low side compared to historical levels. Homes that are priced properly are still selling fairly quickly.
What needs to be watched carefully is whether inventory increases beyond demand. So far this has not been the case but inventory in some other town has slowly been increasing. I expect the market to be steady in the coming months but a slow taper from the activity in the Spring. If you are a buyer and see a home that interests you then be prepared to pounce on it! There are still pockets in the market where homes sell very quickly!
Ashland had a decent month for closed transactions in June with fifteen sales. This was done slightly from the same period last year when there were seventeen sales.
Year to date sales vs last year
There have been 58 homes sold through May. As of this same time last year there were 72 homes sold. As you can see a fairly large difference.
