Westboro MA Real Estate Market Analysis
In 2012 the Westboro Real Estate market had an increase in the amount of homes sold as compared to 2011 although by a much smaller margin than some of the other towns in the immediate area. This is kind of surprising as Westborough is generally ahead of the curve comparably speaking. Homes priced properly generally moved in a reasonable amount of time but the average days on market were up slightly from the previous year. There was still a downward trend in Real Estate values through out the year but the weakness occurred mostly in the upper end of the market (over 600k). The lower end of the market (under 400k) remained strong with values holding firmer than the more expensive homes in town.
Total Westborough real estate sales for 2012 were better than they were in 2011. In 2012 there were a total of 154 closings. In 2011 there were 140 sales. This is about a 10 percent increase over last year. Interestingly enough this was on the lower end of total sales increases when compared to other surrounding towns.
Current home inventory levels started to drop towards the latter half of last year and have remained very low throughout the first part of the year. As we move into September and out of the Summer selling season not much has changed. Inventory levels have continued to hover around 55-65 homes for sale. The amount of homes for sale stayed just about the same as last month with only three more homes for sale. The amount of buyer’s have certainly kept pace with the existing inventory. In fact there have been less homes sold this year to date than last due to the fact that not nearly as many people have put their homes up for sale. This has caused home values to increase across the board in all price points.
Lower inventory is always a good sign for those considering to sell their home as supply and demand is always a factor with Real Estate values. The month of August was very good with 23 closed sales. This was a slightly higher number of homes that sold in the same time frame as last year. The Westborough real estate market is however, trailing some of the other local towns that have housing shortages as well which is pretty unusual.
Year to date there have been 103 home sales. At this same point in time last year there were 120 sales.
