Southboro MA Real Estate Market Analysis
In 2012 the Southborough Real Estate market had an increase in the amount of homes sold as compared to 2011. The increase was moderate however, in comparison to some of the other surrounding area towns like Hopkinton and Ashland, which saw greater gains in the number of homes sold year over year. Homes priced properly generally went under contract in under 90 days.
There was still a downward trend in Real Estate values in the first part of the past year. Values however, really started to firm in the second and third quarters as home inventory levels dropped. The upper end of the market still showed weakness with a slight decline in values. The average days on dropped as compared to the previous year. The lower end of the market (under 500k) remained strong with values holding firmer than in the upper ends of the Southboro market.
2013 has been a completely different story so far. Inventory levels started to drop in the latter half of last year and have continued to do so as we enter June. Inventory levels dropped again last month with a drop of ten homes for sale. These are the lowest levels inventory levels I have seen in many years! they have been for as long as I can remember. 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. It has been an extremely competitive Spring for home buyers looking to move into Southborough. There have been many homes hitting the market that have received multiple offers with selling prices going over asking.
May was a good month for closed home sales. There were seventeen homes that closed which is four more homes than the same month last year. There is no question sales would have been even better if there were more homes for sale. With inventory levels remaining so low it has kept the amount of sales down. In certain price points in the market right now homes are selling as quickly as they are coming on the market. There is no question we have moved out of a buyer’s market and into one that favors seller’s. There were 32 homes that went under contract in May which is a absolutely incredible!
For the year ending 2012 there were 116 sales. In 2011 there were 105 sales. As you can see there was about a 10 percent increase year over year in the amount of home sales. While 10 percent is not bad, there were much healthier increases in other local Metrowest towns.
There have been 44 homes that have sold year to date. At this same point in time last year there were 34 home sales.
