March 2011 Residential Real Estate Sales

Filed under: Business by News Staff at 1:59 am on April 28, 2011

FRAMINGHAM, MA - A total of 43 residential properties were sold in the town of Framingham, MA during the month of March, (2011).

Twenty eight single family homes, ten condos, four multi-family homes and half acre lot on Kendall Street rounded out the residential real estate sales in town for the month.

The single family homes were on the market for an average of 86 days, and sold for an average of just over $300k, slightly below the average list price for the same properties which was $311k.

Condo sales were brisk. Units which did sell had only been on the market for an average of 25 to 26 days. Still, buyers were able to purchase the condos for slightly less than asking price, (in most cases). Average condo prices were in the mid-$90k range, with units selling from $40k to just under $250k. The Town's long standing moratoriums on large-scale apartment complex construction appears to keep demand high for the limited number of existing condominiums in Framingham.

Four 2-family homes located in Downtown Framingham, (40-44 Alexander St., 61 Lawrence St., 231 Irving St. and 8 Wellington Ave) sold during the month of March.  The multi-family homes which were on the market for an average of five months, (157 days), sold at an average of $176k, slightly less than the average asking price of $187k.
