But take a large grain of salt with the disparity in those statistics!  There were a disproportionate number of low-priced sales of antique homes in Franklin during 2012.  Many of these were short sales and foreclosures of small, neglected homes.  These low-end transfers caused the median sale price of antique homes in Franklin to decline in 2012.  These sales lessen the validity of the 2012 median price figure as an accurate read on the current market values of antiques in Franklin.  What this means is your antique home may be worth more today than the median price stats indicate!
