2012 Data Indicates Westford Home Sales Spike
Home sales across the Commonwealth were the highest in six years according to the Warren Group.
According to information released by the Warren Group last month, home sales rose 18 percent across Massachusetts in 2012, with Westford home sales outpacing that growth.
For the year, the Warren Group's report indicated 46,887 homes were sold statewide, up from 39,594 in 2011.
In Westford, 2012 saw 212 sales, up from 171 the year before, with the median home sale dipping slightly from $435,000 to $433,250.
"I would characterize 2012 as the year of robust recovery in the real estate market," said Timothy M. Warren Jr., CEO of The Warren Group. "It is clear we have turned the corner and are gaining ground rapidly. I contrast the 18 percent gain last year with the decline of 6 percent in 2011."
Westford's condo sales also rose in 2012, with 115 sales versus 73 in 2011, with the median sale price staying steady at $280,000.
