Look out Grafton, home buyers have found your town!  Prices have moved up in a steep line this year, and there are indicators that this is likely to continue.  Let's look at the overall market.

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

When we look at the detail data, we see that transaction are up in 2017, while inventory - is starting to really dry up.  This continues the long-term trend we've seen in Grafton, but we're really at an inflection point.  How can I tell?  There was some new construction sitting around - and not selling - which was contributing to really high active market days, in the 400's.  We're back under 300, and that means that the new construction is selling.  I bet we could be under 200 in six months.

What should potential home buyers do in Grafton?

Grafton was a great town to be a buyer.  Now?  Not so much.  As noted in the last report, things were getting tighter, but there were still choices.  Now, the choices are fewer - and selling faster. Grafton has joined towns were the selling just got a lot tougher.

What should future home sellers do in Grafton?

In the last report, I noted that the "big push" in prices hadn't happened yet, but probably would soon.  It has now happened, so get out the broom and get your home ready to sell.  If you look at the data, prices jumped 7% in the last six months, and that is hard to construe as anything but hugely positive for sellers.
