It is very unusual to have so few homes on the market. While this has been the trend through out the year, the amount of homes for sale at the moment is simply unbelievable. The lack of homes for sale is what has driven home values higher along with very attractive interest rates.
Holliston MA Real Estate Market Analysis
In 2013 the Holliston Real Estate market was much different than in previous years. The market in fact turned from what would be considered one of the worst periods of time in our real estate history to an improved market that treated home sellers much differently than in years past.
The turnaround was due to a number of factors including the fact that inventory levels had dropped substantially as we headed into the early stages of February. With pent up buyer demand and record low interest rates the market was primed to move upwards. This is in fact what happened. Homes throughout the Spring of last year were selling very quickly! Often times there were multiple bids within the first week a home was put on the market. It was not unusual to see some homes selling over the asking price.
The market did settle down as we moved to the latter half of the year. We saw more normal sales times and did not have nearly as many multiple bid situations.
Inventory throughout the latter half of last year was incredibly low. Heading into February inventory for sale dropped by four homes. Not many home owners have put their home on the market which is consistent with what happens during the holiday months
Lower home inventory is always a good sign for those considering to sell their home. While nobody has a crystal ball the Holliston market is shaping up to be similar this Spring as it was to last when competition was fierce for homes entering the market. I imagine seeing a similar trend as last Spring when there were very few homes for sale but excellent demand.
The Holliston real estate market ended this year better than last year in terms of the number of homes sold.
For 2013 there were 170 sales while in 2012 there were 155.
