The Hopkinton Homes For Sale Market Report

Hopkinton has had a great run.  Great! But sellers are never satisfied.  Look how crazy home sellers got, asking $280 a square foot, while the buyers were paying less than $240.  Also no big surprise, it didn't work.  Buyers actually started paying less, and sellers  - rather impatiently - quickly cut prices.  By quickly, I mean "over a few months". 

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

So what happened?  Well transactions went from a peak in late 2017 above 200 to 120.  That is a huge drop in sales.  New listings didn't exactly flood the market, they were down too, but the buyers disappeared, as they found value in other markets, or simply disappeared altogether.

What should potential home buyers do in Hopkinton?

Home buyers will find a little more inventory - but the big change is things are less competitive.  This is not a new trend!  With the high prices, fewer buyers are stepping up, even for young homes in good locations.

What should future home sellers do in Hopkinton?

Don't assume you'll sell just because you've got a young neighborhood home.  These numbers show a market rapidly returning to balance.  There aren't enough buyers to go around, and they are shopping multiple towns.
