Sharon home sales were 20% ahead of last year's pace with 54 homes selling in the last 12 months against 43 the previous period. Last year, I reported 80 homes for sale with 6 homes in contract to sell while today we see 74 homes listed for sale with 5 in contract to sell. The local real estate market is getting healthier incrementally!

Additionally, the last 12 months has seen 7 land sales according to the CTMLS and the town records. There are 25 parcels of land in various acreage configurations on the market. It is especially nice to see the uptick in interest in land.

So it appears the current trends are positive! Here is what is going on.
