Hopkinton MA Real Estate Market Analysis
In 2012 the Hopkinton Real Estate market was very different than the previous two years. There was a substantial gain in the number of homes sold. Sales volume was up about 20% over each of the prior two years. Homes priced properly went under contact in a 60-90 day window with the average time being around 4 months. The upper end of the market remained week with market value erosion still present. The lower end of the market (under 500k) was incredibly strong with values holding more steady and in some cases rising slightly.
Current home inventory levels have remained at the lowest they have been for as long as I can remember with 51 homes for sale. There were also 51 homes for sale last month as well. Inventory has remained low even though we are entering a time of year where typically more homes for sale enter the market. The inventory however, is exceptionally low compared to the norm. Closed sales at the end of 2012 were pretty decent and properties going under contract have kept pace with new homes hitting the market.
Lower inventory is always a good sign for those considering to sell their home. In fact over the last month it has become common place to see multiple offers and homes selling over asking price. There is no question it looks like the real estate market may have finally bottomed out and in certain pockets we are seeing price appreciation.
