Northbridge, MA - Home Sales and Real Estate Market Report (November, 2013)

Homes For Sale in Northbridge Market Report

Well, we have some interesting elements in Northbridge. A sign of things to come or no? Let's see what we've got....


Can’t see the chart? You can find it Here .

Let's start with the big news - we see the HSI FALLING significantly in Northbridge. See that red line make a quick turn in the downward direction? Try to find that elsewhere on the blog. You won't. Why is that the case? Well we have the number of homes for sale up (the green line), and the number of homes that sold stalled, and fell a bit.
However, that's not the whole story. Northbridge is really the only town in Metrowest that I track has has a significant amount of new construction. Hopkinton does too- but much of it is not advertised by Pulte, and therefore doesn't go into the stats. Northbridge's new construction is probably underweight as well, but it still makes up about 30% of the listed inventory, so it has a big impact. How's all the new construction doing? Well, there's one number I track that tells us that: The active days on market.

The active days on market, which because of all the new construction, has floated between 260 days and 300 days, fell to 124, as many of the construction opportunities sold out, and their properties fell out of MLS. People are flocking to Northbridge for new construction (relatively affordable new construction). As such, the market is doing quite well, but the HSI is going to look softer because of the extra supply, much of which has recently come on the market (so we'll see DOM climb from here).

It's kept a lid on prices too - $154/ sq foot is the same as the last report, and things have barely moved compared to other towns.
