Shrewsbury, MA - Home Sales and Real Estate Market Report (Mar, 2013)


The Shrewsbury, MA Homes For Sale Market Report

At first blush, one might think the Shrewsbury market is cooling off. And I do think in January and some February, it did just that, as a lack of properties drove the sales numbers quite a bit down (the yellow line on the chart below). The number of homes for sale is technically a bit higher, but many of these homes are pending, meaning the next report is going to show a pretty big blow-out type number.



A number of homes are pending, but don't show up as under agreement in the statistics because they have only been active flagged, which you can read more about here. Other than the slowdown, the market still looks very robust for sellers.

I did notice one other curious thing - the $/sq foot stayed constant at $169, but the houses that were still active were averaging $205 - so that number is going to go up - and fast. We'll see how high, in the next report.

As far as the bank owned inventory, there has been a HUGE drop. With only 6 bank impact properties - vs. 22 last time - that will change things a lot for sellers.
