While all real estate is local, there are many positive signs being seen all across the Northeast and in other major regional markets across the country. In general, the Tewksbury market seems to be holding it's own with respect to a continuing and steady recovery, especially in the mid-price range of $500K to $900K where homes are moving the fastest. There has also been signs of encouragement on the high-end as well, where things have been very stagnant for several years now, especially for homes priced at $1.4M and above. The next several months will be critical in determining if the recent upswing has any sustained staying power. After a very difficult winter, many experts predicted a very robust Spring selling season which has turned out to be somewhat of a mixed bag. While there has been an increase of new inventory entering the market, many of these sellers have priced their homes significantly above market value. They seem to be thinking that the "good old days" are back, which could not be further from the truth. Buyers are still in control of this market.
Interest rates remain at or near historic lows and prices are still relatively low. Combine these two factors with a relatively high inventory of homes to choose from and you have the perfect conditions for a robust and steady housing recovery. The general state of the economy along with a high rate of foreclosures and distressed properties are expected to keep prices low for several more years as older inventory eventually gets cleared out.
