Franklin Real Estate Report Summary:
With 32 homes pending or contingent and a limited amount of inventory, I would consider Franklin a hot market leaning towards a sellers favor. Buyers looking to purchase here can find a nice balance of resale homes and new construction. There are just two lender involved properties on the market. Competitively priced homes do not stay on the market long. I expect that as the weather improves, the housing market will follow suit. (This reporting is relative to the single family home market, but condo and multi family homes in this community are hot as well.)
Buyers continue to find Franklin very desirable. Why not? With a recent news report suggesting that Franklin is the nation's safest city, who wouldn't consider the community to be their families home base?
If you are considering buying a home in Franklin, MA, don't sit on the sidelines for too long. Start actively looking now. The "spring market" has already commenced and is just going to get more competitive.
If you are a seller, pricing your home in line with comparable home sales will bring you an offer close to asking in a short amount of time.
