Home Sales and Median Price Rise in Attleboro

Statistics show more houses sold in Attleboro in January 2013 than in January 2012.

Attleboro's home sales almost doubled in the month of January when compared to the same month last year, according to data released by real estate information firm The Warren Group. 

There were 14 home sales in January 2012 and 25 sales this year, The Warren Group reported.

In Massachusetts, 2,680 homes sold in January 2013, an increase over last year's 2,436 sales. This is the highest January sales volume for single-family homes in Massachusetts since January 2007, when there were 2,953 transactions.

"We ended 2012 on a pretty positive note, and this is carrying into January," said Timothy M. Warren Jr., CEO of The Warren Group. "Recent pending sales data are a hopeful sign for a strong spring market. And given low mortgage rates and steady prices, there are positive signs that 2013 will be a second year of recovery."

The median sale price in Attleboro also increased. It was $187,500 in January 2012 and $226,100 last month.
