Southboro MA Real Estate Market Analysis
The 2013 real estate market
In 2013 the Southborough Real Estate market only had a slight increase in the amount of homes sold as compared to 2012 but that does not begin to describe the difference in the market. 2013 was a year that will be remembered for the fact that it was the first year in a very long time that we actually saw appreciation in home values for a very long time. Through out the first half of 2013 the market was absolutely sizzling with homes selling in an incredibly short period of time. There were in fact a number of occasions where homes would be selling in the first week, sometimes over asking prices with multiple bids. The real estate market was nothing like we had seen since 2005.
The change is the market was due to a few factors including pent up demand combined with low inventory of homes for sale with record low interest rates. In simple terms it was all about supply and demand.
Lower home inventory is always a good sign for those considering to sell their home as supply and demand plays a big factor with Real Estate values.
in 2013 there were 119 homes sold. In 2012 Southborough had 116 sales.
The 2014 real estate market
As we head into April the amount of homes for sale remains historically very low. There was only a marginal increase from last month when there was 30 homes available to purchase.
At the moment with only 35 homes for sale the market is set up to completely favor home sellers. Over the next few months you will see a dramatic shift in the dynamics of how real estate sales take place. There should be more homes coming on the market and a lot more sales activity. The market is shaping up to be very similar to what it was last year at this time with low inventory and good buyer demand. There is no question that sellers are going to be in the drivers seat once again this Spring. Buyers will have to jump when they see a home they like.
March was an average month for closed home sales. There were six homes that closed which is one less than March of last year.
Eight homes however went under contract in March which isn’t bad considering how few homes are available for purchase. Seasonally we have also not hit the most robust time of the year to sell a home. Expect this to change very soon!
