Milford MA Real Estate Market Analysis
In 2012 the Milford Real Estate market had a substantial increase in the amount of homes sold as compared to 2011. In fact it was close to a 20% gain in the number of sales! Homes priced properly generally went under contract in under 90 days. There was a downward trend in Real Estate values through out the first half of the year but stabilized as we moved toward the latter half of the year. This was due to inventory levels dropping as housing demand remained fluid. The average days on market decreased quite a bit over the prior year. The lower end of the market (under 300k) remained very strong with values holding firmer than in the upper ends of the Milford market.
The real estate market for the year fared much better than last. In 2012 there were 203 sales for the year! In 2011 there were 165. This was about a 20% jump over the prior year for the number of sales. All indication are we could be near a market bottom.
Current home inventory levels started to decrease over the latter half of last year and have remained so as we head into September. Home inventory decreased from last month with six less homes for sale. There are now 66 homes for sale in Milford which still is very low from a historical perspective. It is not unusual at all to have over 100 homes for sale at any given time. The fact there are only 66 homes for sale should continue to make the housing market strong for home sellers.
Low 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 real estate market should remain strong as we head out of Summer and into the Fall market for sellers!
The amount of transactions for August was very similar to last year with one less sale. The amount of homes that went under contract (fifteen) was decent. We have seen a bit of a slow down in the amount of activity as we have left the Summer market and head into the Fall. In some pockets of the market where inventory has remained low, however, there have been bidding wars with homes going under contract almost immediately. The market as a whole was extremely active this Spring. The market will more than likely take somewhat of a breather as we head into what is traditionally a slower time of the year.
So far in 2013 there have been 137 sales. At this same point in time last year there were 141 home sales.
