Northbridge MA Real Estate Market Analysis
2013 Analysis of the Northbridge Real Estate Market.
In 2013 the Northbridge Real Estate market was much better than in previous years. Not only was there a fairly sizable jump in the amount of homes that were sold but market values also jumped as well. On statistical anomaly was the fact that the average days on market stayed exactly the same as the previous year. Most of the surrounding communities saw a decrease in the average days on the market.
The lower end of the Northbridge market was much stronger than the upper end which was the biggest contributing factor to the days on market remaining higher.
One of the biggest driving forces in the market improving was the low inventory of homes for sale. Throughout most of last year there were far fewer homes for sale than in years past. Supply and demand is always one of the biggest factors in determining home values.
The lower inventory levels are having a positive effect on both the time it is taking for homes to go under contract, as well as the firming of market values.
The Spring was especially strong, with the Summer months also showing strong sales. The latter half of the Fall and Winter were not as strong. This is not all that unusual from a historical perspective.
For 2013 Northbridge finished the year with 144 home sales. In 2012 there were 120 sales. Northbridge had a decent year in terms of an increase year over year of home sales.

The market trends right now are very similar to what they were last year. The market favors sellers with inventory still remaining low. Buyers are going to need to be in a position to move quickly on something they find attractive. The market may not be quite as robust as last year as market values have gone up along with interest rates.
