Upton, MA - Home Sales Statistics (Mar)

Upton Housing Market Statistics Overview

Sellers are way ahead of buyers in Upton. With 16 (30% of the market) having listed in just the last 30 days, there's a surge in inventory. Sales haven't kept pace - yet - and so we see a pretty disappointing HSI in Upton in this report: 62. In some of the other towns, this rise in inventory has been offset by coming sales, with Sudbury and Southborough, both further East, showing some strong demand and quick sales. That's much more muted in Upton, which typically can take a little longer to heat up for sellers. We know what that means, Buyers, try Upton! It's a small town, but it might have the right house for you. With all these sellers, and not much competition, it could be the right place to buy now.


Some might ask: 16 new homes for sale in a month? Is this the dreaded "Shadow Inventory?" coming to Upton? Once again, the answer is no. We see no change in the bank-impacted inventory, with just three homes either a foreclosure or short-sale. As a percentage, that's still too much for my liking (6%) but it's better than much higher numbers, and the foreclosure rate (2%) is within norms.
