Mini-boom for Franklin colonial homes

Colonial homes in Franklin, MA enjoyed what amounted to a mini-boom during the first half of 2013.  Colonial prices and sales volume spiked on strong buyer demand for Franklin colonials of just about any size and condition.

Colonial prices rise in Franklin

Since  the first half of 2011, the median sales price of colonials in Franklin, MA has climbed just over 10%.

A few words of caution regarding the value of your Franklin colonial in the second half of 2013:  changes in mortgage interest rates may play a role in how your home’s value will fare for the rest of the year.  The run-up in rates that took place in June did appear to slow the local real estate market at least a bit.  If rates were to shoot up further in 2013, the rise in Franklin colonial home sales prices might take a breather.

Franklin colonial sales volume up

Why are Franklin colonial home prices and sales volume rising?

 The short answer to why colonial homes in Franklin had such a great first half of 2013 is tight supply at a time of strong demand.  Supply and demand shape the residential real estate market.  Abundant supply at a time of low demand sets the stage for falling home prices.  A low supply of homes for sale coupled with lots of active buyers  help send home sales prices higher.
