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.
Analysis of current Framingham market.
Current home inventory levels rose from last month however by a very small margin with only an increase of two homes! As we head into February, the number of homes for sale has shrunk to the lowest level in decades. In my twenty seven years in the business I do not ever remember inventory being this low. Sales continue to be exceptionally strong in Framingham.
There has been a slight slow down in market activity over the last few months of the year is not all that uncommon. Framingham however has remained busier than some of the other local communities.
January was somewhat slower than the rest of the year when it comes to closed sales. There were 27 properties that closed in January which is not bad for this time of year. The amount of homes going under contract in January was not quite as good with only thirteen.
The market looks ripe to continue it’s stellar pace over the next few months right into the Spring market.
So 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 2102 there were 473 sales. There were more than 100 more sales in 2013!
