2013 1st half recap – Franklin, MA split and raised ranch homes
Split level and raised ranches sold well in Franklin MA during the first half of 2013. Sales volume rose and the average days on market (DOM) for these homes declined significantly. Additionally, the supply of splits and raised ranches available for purchase remained very low throughout the first half of 2013. These three factors should bode well for the Franklin split level and raised ranch home market in the second half of the year!
Days on Market decline
Days on market (DOM) is the time it takes for a home to find a buyer and go under agreement. As a market gauge, average DOM reflects the “temperature” of the market: the lower the average DOM, the faster homes find buyers and the more active demand there is for homes. So with the graph below, a LOWER average DOM is BETTER:
2013’s first half average DOM for split level and raised ranch homes in Franklin, Massachusetts declined nearly 40% from year-ago levels. That’s GOOD! It took a lot less time for split level and raised ranch listings to find buyers during the first half of 2013 compared to the first half of 2012.
Home sales volume rises
Not only were splits and raised ranches selling quickly in 2013, more of them were selling as well!
13 split level and raised ranch homes sold in Franklin during the first half of the year. That’s a dramatic improvement over the 7 such homes that sold during the same period the year before. 2013’s first half sales production for splits and raised ranches is on par with first half sales in 2011 and better than first half sales volume of 2010 and 2009.
