Total properties sold - 118 (down 29 units from 2009 and 48 units from 2008)
Average days on market - 91 (down 36 days from 2009 and 70 from 2008)
Average list price - $182,502 (down $9,877 from 2009 and $4,602 from 2008)
Average sale price - $175,536 (down $7,947 from 2009 and $2,260 from 2008)
Average sale price to list price ratio - 97% (up 1% from 2009 and 2% from 2008)
So, historically in August over the past two years the number of units sold has gone down but so has the average number of days on market. Although prices are still down, they are holding a slightly steady pace and not dropping at an unruly pace.
Worcester is still wide open to investors and those looking to purchase a home at a reasonable price. Grea values can be found throughout the city making it a great option for first time home-buyers as well. Commuters to Boston will also find it a nice alternative with the ability to get "more bang for yoru buck".

Considering buying in Worcester? I can help.

On Friday, my family and I went out to Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, MA. We'd gotten wind that it was a "Free Friday" and since we'd never been, we decided to go. It was a really interesting place full of vibrant history and fun things to do. Here is a photo story of our trip.
