Here are is a quick year over year market synopsis. Below are sales statistics for single family homes in Haverhill:

3/26/2011 - 3/26/2012:
Median Price: $237,000
341 properties sold

3/26/2010 - 3/26/2011:
Median Price: $245,750
328 properties sold

This market appears to be fairly stable with only a slight decrease in number of sales and median price. A real valuation is much more complex but you would have to post the property you are interested in to get an in depth answer.

If you are looking to sell your house and are hung up on "waiting for the market to come back up" Consider this: If you are upsizing, looking to buy a bigger/better property, the equity built in your new, bigger home, property when the market rebounds will be greater than if you rode out the slump in your current property.

Haverhill is my market, and have an office in the Bradford section of Haverhill. Haverhill is not different than most any other city in the state, or country for the matter. We all took some big hits, though in the stock market they would call it a "correction". Maybe a correction was needed, but the ripple effects have hurt. The good news is that the market appears to have stabilized. Yes, there are a few ripples here in there, but stable for the most part. Its still a buyers market, and a great time to buy. Haverhill is a great city, with an active and very nice downtown area. Ponds, city parks, jogging trails and even some Hot Dog n Bean Dinners and Concerts at the Castle... its a nice place to call home.

hi,

my father's family comes from haverhill mass. i actually visited ther 3 summers ago. i would contact a reputable real estate company in town. ask them what ther experience has been. they should have data they can show you. each area is different than the next. it is very localized.

Actually the market is great for homebuyers right now! Properties that were on the market just two years ago, are now greatly reduced. Many of the current homeowers trying to sell their property are really upgrading kitchens and baths in hopes of enticing prospective buyers. A victorian that was on sale for $419,000 two years ago is currently on the market for $100,000 less, and additional work was done to the property in the meantime.

So, if you have the funds and decent credit, now really is the time to buy!

Hi Gina,

The market in Haverhill is booming right now ! With homes available from $85k up to $1 million there is something for everyone.

As of today there are 220 single family homes available and 272 condos available. Homes are selling at an average of 23 per month and condos are selling at an average of 22 per month.

With interest rates still low, inventory relatively low, and buyer activity still high, this is a great time to sell. ( I can remember a year ago there were over 300 single family homes for sale!! )

Buyers are picky, however, and they are buying homes that are in good condition so your home needs to stand out amongst the others - - being neat and tidy will appeal to buyers!

The market is relatively tough for homeowners. Unless priced a bit below the competition and marketed well, the property will sit. If you are trying to buy a property, it's great! Good luck, Jon
