November Home Sales Up in Stoughton
But year to date sales still remain down in Stoughton from 2010 to 2011.
Home sales were on the rise in Stoughton in November, according to data released last week.
The data, compiled by real estate information firm The Warren Group, had home sales increasing from nine in November 2010 to 19 last month (November 2011).
But, sales for the year are down slightly in Stoughton, from 150 in 2010 to 148 in 2011.
The state saw its fifth straight month of year-over-year home sales increases. Massachusetts home sales went up from 2,875 last year to 3,253 last month.
Warren Group CEO Timothy Warren Jr. said in a statement that he was hopeful for the coming year.
"I'm hopeful that winding down the year on a positive note will stimulate the market in 2012," Warren said.
"But, a reality check of the numbers shows we may see a record low number of home sales in all of 2011, somewhere near the level in the 1990s."
