Many of our buyers looking in the Canton and Sharon areas end up making a decision to look in Mansfield MA instead. Located right next to Sharon, it has proven to be a great alternative to many of our buyers so I thought it was time to add in a real estate market report for Mansfield MA.
The third quarter of 2014 saw a slight decrease in sales compared to the same period of 2013. As is the case with many of our other towns, Mansfield also has had a low inventory throughout the year. However, that same low inventory also drove up home prices for the third quarter of 2014.
Located just south of Sharon and over the border into Bristol County, Mansfield is only about a 15-25 minute train ride to Providence, RI and about 30-40 minutes by commuter rail to Boston. With some express trains originating out of Mansfield, the train ride can be even shorter at times. Located right along Routes 95 and 495, commuting by car is also a convenient option.
With a high school that was listed in 2014 by both US News and World Report and Boston Magazine as being one of the Top 50 High Schools in the State, it's no wonder that home buyers are realizing that Mansfield is a viable choice as a place to live.
In addition to access to local cultural offerings, Mansfield also offers great outdoor recreational opportunities - whether it's enjoying Fulton Pond located right in the downtown or exploring the Great Woods Conservation Area.
