Hopkinton MA Real Estate Market Analysis
Real Estate analysis for 2013
In 2013 the Hopkinton Real Estate market was extremely different. In fact not since the peak of the real estate market in 2005 have we seen such a different market. The first half of 2013 was reminiscent of years past when there were buyers fighting over homes. In fact in a number of cases homes that went on the market were sold in the first few days on the market. There were many occasions where there were multiple buyers bidding on the homes driving up the final sale price over asking.
The real estate market in 2013 essentially swung all the way from a buyers market to a full fledged sellers market. While there were less sales than the previous couple of years values were up and the amount of time it took to sell a home was down tremendously.
Current home inventory levels remained in a fairly tight range throughout the year which is a big reason why we saw the appreciation we did. Interest rates being at record lows and pent up buyer demand also played a role in the real estate turn around.
Homes for sale in Hopkinton throughout most of 2013 went under contract fairly quickly. While the Spring market this past year was blistering, the market has settled into what would be best described as more normal. Low home inventory combined with attractive interest rates has been the driving force behind a much of the improvement in the real estate market since last year and will more than likely be the similar this year. Lower inventory is always a good sign for those considering to sell their home.
The total number of homes sold in 2013 was 185 closed sales which was eighteen less than last year when there was 203.
Real Estate analysis for 2014
The market has just started to show signs of heating up. With very few homes on the market any well priced property that comes on the market is more than likely going to sell quickly. The key is not overpricing a home just because there is low inventory. All indications are that we are in for an exceptional Spring if you are considering selling your home. Interest rates still remain historically low. As a buyer if you see a home you like I would be prepared to jump on it as there will likely be multiple interested parties.
