by Bob Zorechak - GRI, ABR, e-PRO
The numbers for Tewksbury in JUNE of 2014 are all down slightly with the exception of the rolling 12 month sales volume:
The rolling 12 month sales volume is up slightly by 12% or 9 units - June 2012 thru June 2013 (73 homes sold) as compared to June 2013 thru June 2014 with (82 homes sold).
The June year-to-date numbers are down moderately by 16% or six (6) units when you compare the current period (32 homes sold) to last year's year-to-date total (38 homes sold).
The monthly volume for the number of sales occurring this June was nine (9) units as compared to fourteen (14) units for last June. This represents a decrease of 4% or five (5) units from the previous year.
The Tewksbury market continues to hold its own through JUNE especially when you look at the volume of Pending Sales (Under Contract) as of the last day of June 2014 which is running only 10% below 0r one (1) unit less than last year's pace which was ten (10) units as compared to this year at nine (9) units. Included in this category are four homes priced from at least $1,250,000 to 2,250,000, which represents a significant uptick in the sale of higher-end homes, which has been dormant for the past several years. Hopefully, this is a very good sign for this price point in the Tewksbury market and a sign of things to come.

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.
