Real Estate Sales for Grafton, MA - Home Sales and Real Estate Market Report (May, 2015)

The Grafton Homes For Sale Market Report

Grafton looks to expand on a new trend we've been seeing, and also has some mystery too - a fall in prices where there shouldn't be one. Let's see!
The HSI continues to climb, and inventories are headed down,
indicating that prices rises are near.
Can’t see the chart? You can find it Here .
Overall, things look rosy for home sellers - the market is getting busy at the right time. Buyers aren't complaining, as sales volume is picking up nicely. The new trend that I'm seeing is that the last 3 months have been much, much busier than the previous three months. And really, we're talking about the last two months, because we know February was a dud. In Grafton, 91 of the last 125 homes have sold in the last 8 weeks or so, and that's a bunch.

They mystery is there's an apparent fall in prices paid. Note though, that the seller's asking prices have not fallen, so this is likely a result of some distressed inventory moving off the market, as investors start fixing and flipping the more risky properties.


What should active home buyers do in Grafton?

Things are busy - the most desirable homes are selling very quickly - a week or less. Those that need work or have less than popular locations are hanging around, and there are still some values, but they are moving fast.

What should potential home sellers do in Grafton?

Prices seem firm. When I look at the data though, there's still not a ton of pressure yet. Inventory is falling, and when it falls low enough, prices will spike. That spike is coming, but I'm not sure it's here yet.


Seller's aren't asking any more, but buyers have been
driving harder deals in this report.

Real Estate Sales for Framingham, MA - Home Sales and Real Estate Market Report (May, 2015)

Real Estate Sales for Framingham, MA - Home Sales and Real Estate Market Report (May, 2015)

The Framingham Homes For Sale Market Report

Ahh, a rising tide lifts all boats - until the tide goes out again. While the tide is certainly not going out in Framingham, we may be close to the high tide, for now.

What's with the water metaphor? Well, if you've been reading this space, you know that Framingham blew the doors off with the last market report, as sales went silly, and prices have been following. But now, with prices climbing ever higher - and quite quickly - we are seeing things slow - a little in Framingham. Let's see.
Can’t see the chart? You can find it Here .
Inventory has almost doubled, but it would need to double again for things to really cool off. Not likely to happen anytime soon. But look at the seller's optimism! They keep moving the goal posts, and prices keep going up - and they will, until the buyers say "no mas" and start focusing on other towns.

What should active home buyers do in Framingham?

With this report in, Framingham houses are now just as expensive as many surrounding communities. With prices at $209/ sq foot, towns like Southborough, Hopkinton, Ashland, and others are no more expensive - and Westborough is quite a bit cheaper. Yes, all those towns are not as close to Boston, but if you're having trouble finding something - or just getting tired of insane bidding wars - why check out what's there, and see what makes sense for you.  Go before everyone else figures that out - because they will.

What should potential home sellers do in Framingham?

Sell, Sell, Sell. If you want to move (to a town other than Framingham!), Now is the time. Yes, prices could go up, but the demand is near a peak, and the future is known to no one.

Real Estate Sales for Clinton, MA - Home Sales and Real Estate Market Report (May, 2015)

The Clinton Homes For Sale Market Report

Clinton checks in with some strange price activity - as the data looks to really jump around. What can we make of it? Let's look at the headline numbers.

Can’t see the chart? You can find it Here .
OK, this one looks alright; transactions are down the HSI is down a bit too. Part of that is the lack of inventory that Clinton - and so many towns - are dealing with. The pricing information is a little whacky though - see the chart below.  for the past couple of cycles, homes in Clinton have been asking lower prices than they were getting.  That's right, the sale per square foot were over the average asking price.  How is that possible?  Well, a few homes, that had extensive issues, were priced so low they threw off the averages.  Now, those homes are in the pricing data, (they sold), not the asking data, so the sales prices of the ask are once again above the get - but we see the "sold" prices have fallen sharply.

What should active home buyers do in Clinton?

First off, don't think home prices in Clinton really have fallen off a cliff.  They haven't.  Just look at the ask prices, which are moving sharply up.  That shows a better indication of where future sale prices might be headed.  Home buyers will see some inventory, and not too many competitive bids, but Clinton doesn't have a ton, and the good stuff isn't sitting for long.  Prices are fair - in general - so do your research and bid with confidence.

What should potential home sellers do in Clinton ?

Overall, the sale of distressed property in Clinton means that market is finding buyers even for deep risk properties, and that general means prices are going to continue to go up.  Once the investors come in, things start to improve rapidly, as we've seen in other towns.  There is probably more upside coming in the next couple of years, but the market is good right now, and if you need to sell, it's not a bad time.
