The Charlton Homes For Sale Market Report

The home market waters in Charlton are going to get good and muddy. With a significant amount of new construction, we're going to see softer numbers persist - just as we did in Northbridge. Keep this in mind, as the market will be stronger than the HSI indicates, and $/sq foot should be watched closely. Home buyers pay premiums for new construction, and that pushes prices up when the sales come through. Of course, many new construction sales don't come through MLS, so it can be hard to track actual activity.

What should active home buyers do in Charlton ?

If home buyers are looking for options, Charlton has some.  Both new construction and not.  Don't be fooled though - prices are up, and the HSI is at a record, showing that the market is more of a sellers market than it might appear.  The best properties are moving quickly, but if you are in the market for new construction, you will find some options in Charlton.


What should potential home sellers do in Charlton ?

Home sellers are still asking a pretty healthy premium over recent sales, showing optimism. I think the gap will probably close this fall, and if there is a pull back in prices, the sellers will have to match that and go even lower to keep transactions moving.  As in all markets impacted by new construction, know where you fit.  If you are in the same price range as new construction, make sure you are priced appropriately, and if you are out of the new construction price range, you have more leverage - and much fewer competitors.
