New construction and the associated tear down of older and smaller homes is alive and well in Wellesley.
For the eight month period from 1/1/2011 to 8/31/2011 twenty two new construction single family homes were sold in Wellesley with an average sale price of $2,109,500. The 22 homes represented 10% of the total number of homes sold.
For the same eight month period in 2012 the number of new construction single family home sales increased by 18% to 26 homes. The total number of homes also increased proportionally so that new construction represented 10.1% of sales.
The only significant change from the first eight months of 2011 versus 2012 was a decrease in the average sale price of new construction homes of 10.1% and a corresponding per square foot price decrease of 6.9%.
Fast forward 50 years and at this rate Wellesley may not have any smaller/older homes left to tear down!
What do you think about this trend?
