Framingham MA Real Estate Market Analysis
Real Estate Re-cap for 2013
The Framingham Real Estate market for 2013 was nothing like in years past. In 2013 Framingham saw a complete turnaround with the market shifting from a buyers market to a full fledged sellers market. Not since 2005 did we see such a real estate frenzy especially in the early stages of 2013 through the Spring time.
The market was characterized by homes going under agreement very quickly. This was especially true if homes were priced under the $450,000 price point. Any way you want to measure the market 2013 was better than in years past. There were far more homes sold in 2013 in quite a long time. In fact it should be noted in the stats above where it says 500+ that there is not an exact figure because the multiple listing service does not track higher than 500 homes sold. That right there should tell you something. The other really note worthy statistic is the fact that the average days on the market was done by more than a month from 2012. Home took a much quicker time to sell. The average price for a home also increased.
What drove the market was the fact that inventory remained tight throughout the year. Lower home inventory levels are always great for those considering to sell their home, as supply and demand is always a factor with Real Estate values. Framingham was certainly one of the top performing towns in the entire Metrowest area this past year.
In 2013 in Framingham there were over 500 home sales. In fact the multiple listing service does not show the amount of sales when it goes over 500 which is disappointing because I can’t show the exact amount! For 2012 there were 473 sales. There were more than 100 more sales in 2013!.
Analysis of current 2014 Framingham market.
Current home inventory increased from last month with twenty four additional homes added to what is already available for purchase. As we move into May, the number of homes for sale has grown quite a bit of the last two months and now gives buyers a much better selection of properties to consider buying. Inventory is still low when compared to historical standards. The trend of more home hitting the market should continue over the next few months of the most active time of the year for real estate.
Sellers are still sitting in the drivers seat at the moment as inventory levels are no where near anything that would be considered high. If inventory does continue to rise however things could change.
April was an average month for closed sales. There were 227 properties that closed in April which was down considerably from last year at this time when there were 44 sales. This is really just a reflection of how tight inventor has been for the first quarter of the year.
The amount of homes going under contract in April was decent with 35 properties accepting contracts.
Closed homes this year vs last
There have been 95 sales this year compared to 122 at this same point in time last year.
