November was a very robust month for home sales in Ashland, Ma when compared to November of 2010. Last November, only 3 homes sold in November, this year 12 homes sold! Last year the average (using Nov data only) was 328 days. Clearly there was a home that sold that had sat on the market for a very long time that skewed the month to month comparison. This year the market time for homes sold in November was 68 days, a very healthy sale month! The data shows us that homes that sold in November 2011 were a little bit smaller on average. The per square foot sale price has seemed to soar - This too is a result of the mix of homes that sold in one month. I've done an analysis in 8 towns surrounding Ashland at this point and no town has increased the per sq ft sales price by that much. In fact most towns have come down a bit in 2011 over 2010. So for Ashland we're going to have to wait until end of year to determine the average per sq foot sale price. Stay tuned for that report in January! Also good to note that 5 condos sold in November of 2010 as opposed to 6 condos selling in Ashland in 2011 - a very solid selling month!
