SUMMARY: The Southbridge real estate market is rising steadily. All variables are improved over 2015. Currently, there are 47 single family homes actively listed, representing about five months' worth of inventory on the market. Another 23 homes are currently under contract.
The inventory level suggests a sellers' market; however, this does not mean that sellers can name their price or avoid making repairs in order to sell. Buyers' financing and preference trends still drive the market. Homes that have been updated and maintained still sell faster and for a higher price than those needing work.
It will be interesting to see how the final quarter of 2016 plays out. Stay tuned!
