So what does all this mean? Well, if you're looking for a home in North Attleboro, you can probably find a bargain in 2 and 3 bedroom homes as prices are down. Still, lowball offers won't cut it in a market like this.

But if you're looking for a 4 bedroom home, you better not mess around too much. While sales overall are relatively flat, prices of these homes are climbing. Still, sellers aren't in control of the market either, so both buyers & sellers should be reasonable when negotiating.

You can still buy a home with no money down with a VA Loan. With the FHA Mortgage program, you can purchase a home with as little as 3.5% down. With a MassHousing loan, you can purchase a home with as little as 3.0% down.
