The Shrewsbury Homes For Sale Market Report

Shrewsbury prices continue to nudge up, and the HSI is higher - but will this be as good a year as last year for Shrewsbury?  That's less clear....

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

We see transaction volume climbing, and inventory at lows, but the secondary data is not as optimistic.  Homes are sitting longer - both for sales and homes that are still listed - and prices are stalling.  Right now, the HSI is really high as the inventory is at all time lows, but if there's some inventory, we might see Shrewsbury actually cool off a bit.  The inventory is really low - so that argues for a strong spring, but if homes come on, and there are choices, buyers are already showing patience, and may show more resistance if there are options.

 

What should potential home buyers do in Shrewsbury?

Home buyers should be aware Shrewsbury is at a top, and some early listings may go fast.  If you want Shrewsbury, you can't be too picky - things could continue to march higher - but if you have time to look, it may make sense to keep an eye on Northborough and Westborough - which are similar in price and location - so see if the market there is softening.

What should future home sellers do in Shrewsbury?

As a home seller, I would try to be early to this market.  With so little inventory, buyers are going to be getting impatient, they may find themselves chasing your house and moving the price up further than you can get later.
