Outlook upbeat at Spruce Pond Village as first half of 2012 comes to a close

Market stats for the first half of 2012 produced solid reasons for optimism about the future of  prices at Spruce Pond Village, the popular townhouse condominium community in Franklin, MA.

Market started looking up in early 2012

There was a profound change for the better in the MA real estate market in the first half of the year.  Home sales soared over 20% across the Bay State as buyers snapped up bargains, encouraged by the strengthening MA economy and record low mortgage rates.  Read a full report on Massachusetts real estate during the first half of 2012 by clicking the hotlink.

Spruce Pond units start selling

You can trace the improvement in the MA real estate market in the listing histories of the three units that sold at Spruce Pond in the first half of 2012.

If you can believe it, those three transactions represent the highest sale volume at Spruce Pond for the first half of any year going back to 2006!

Market resistance to Spruce Pond listings in 2011

Two townhomes on Highbank Road (Units 73 and 83) came on the MLS in August 2011.  The market was sluggish then and the units encountered stiff resistance.

Both units sat unsold for months.

Timing makes the difference

31 Quince Island Road received a much better reception from buyers, and it was simply a matter of timing.  That new listing hit the MLS in January 2012 as the market shift was underway.

31 Quince found a buyer in less than 3 weeks!

Once 31 Quince went under agreement, market sentiment continued to improve and the Highbank units started getting serious attention from buyers.

73 Highbank went under agreement in February and by April, 83 Highbank had found a buyer as well.
