The Charlton Homes For Sale Market Report


Charlton checks in with some muddled data - about 25% of the listings are new construction, and that generally changes some stats. Here's how:

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

With so much new construction, we would expect to see a long market time for homes still on the market. It's not terrible, at 190 days, but a lot of those are new construction listings a year old- so things are marketedly better than that would suggest. Also, the big differential between "ask" ($162) and "getting" ($133) is also probably due to this. Builders charge premiums, and it takes a while for those closings to impact the sales data. New construction often is a year behind - or more - in data, and they don't use MLS very reliably.



What should active home buyers do in Charlton?

Well if you're looking for new construction at good prices, you're in luck, Charlton has lots. The market has other choices, but it's moving pretty quickly, so don't think this is a sleepy real estate town, it's not.





What should potential home sellers do in Charlton?

As long as your not competing head-to-head with the new construction, things look very promising for 2015. With sellers asking prices that are too high, you could ask for a little extra - and probably get it.
