Shrewsbury is one the most well managed towns in Worcester County. According to Money magzine its ranked 58th in the "best small towns to live". If you check out the school system(MCAS scores) I believe you will find it to meet you needs. Shrewsbury has it's own cable and electric company, with great rates and top of the line service. I've been here for 9+ years and I love it. I would recommend Shrewbury to any person looking for a well structured town, school system, and housing values. If your interested in receiving more information please email me and I'll be glad to forward the additional information. ... more

There are 102 Homes which have sold in Shrewsbury since Jan 1,2009. Yes ,many of them have sold for less than assessed value and some have sold for more. There really is no easy answer due to other factor which need to be addressedwhen looing for a home. Things that you would need to consider as well would be the condition of the home,The location,is it on a busy, how many days has it been on the market and there are other factors to help determine the value of a home. I would be more than happy to discuss the market conditions in shrewsbury area with you if you would like

Take Care,

Check this link out:

Basically this pundit writing for CNN calling for price decreases approaching in 2011 and beyond

This guy is a bit of an extremist in his views on real estate, but a lot of what he says is dead on and he also provides many useful links to news releases of recent happening in the real estate world.

Bottom line is that buying now (as of winter 2010) is almost certainly buying into a declining market. Be patient, rent, invest the difference from renting versus owning into safer investments and you'll probably come out ahead and even able to buy a home with cash in 10 years.

Hope this helps
