The Worcester Mass Homes For Sale Market Report and Statistics


Worcester by far has one of the healthier charts.  The multi-family chart would look even better, as those properties are seeing the best run maybe ever. It's staying rational too.

Can’t see the chart? You can find it Here .

Again, we see transactions and inventories dropping.  It's hard to know how much of that is COVID related, or simply demand related, because in this city, unlike some others, the DOM shows things are moving quickly.  Note the HSI sets a record, at 250, showing a super competitive market. 

What should potential home buyers do in Worcester?

Home buyers still need to move quickly in this market - the demand is outstripping supply, COVID or not.  It will be harder to assess traffic levels without any open houses (as few agents are doing them), which makes bidding harder!

What should future home sellers do in Worcester ?

Home seller are getting record prices and should think about testing the market even though things are more uncertain.  There will be people who need to move.  But in Worcester, the type of property that you are listing is more relevant to whether that strategy makes sense.  Different property types will benefit from different strategies.
