NORWOOD

This page is not cluttered with historical or demographic data. That information is available elsewhere. The focus here is on the things which you might find important. Instructions for viewing Norwood real estate listings are found at the bottom of this article...

Howard Street Clock

Norwood consists of about 30,000 year-round residents and is home to the Norwood Automile. Its residents describe the town as a quiet rural community, a relaxing place to retire, or even raise a family. Norwood is a highly desirable, yet still affordable community to call home. U.S. 1 is a major artery through Norwood with quick access to Interstate 95 and Hwy 128. However, if commuting via public transit is important to you, the Franklin Line runs from Forge Park-495 to South Boston. The MBTA also provides bus service.

Norwood's five elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school are operated by the Norwood Public School district. Inform yourself of bus transportation information before assuming transportation is free or available.

Local news in Norwood is distributed by The Norwood Transcript and Bulletin, The Patch; and, of course, there is always The Boston Globe, and The Boston Herald.

Sold Statistics for Norwood

Single Family:
2012 - 177 sales. List Price - $364,982 Sale Price - $350,967   Market Time - 88 days
2011 - 152 sales. List Price - $366,843 Sale Price - $355,972   Market Time - 98 days

Norwood has not seen the same good news its neighbor, Dedham, has. Sales in Norwood continue their slide both in volume and value. Norwood needs to hope that it hit bottom in 2012 and that 2013 will promise much better news.

Condominiums:
2012 - 55 sales. List Price - $241,187 Sale Price - $232,323   Market Time - 144 days
2011 - 44 sales. List Price - $235,460 Sale Price - $225,749   Market Time - 139 days
2010 - 38 sales. List Price - $286,503 Sale Price - $274,437    Market Time - 133 days

Condominium sales, rose in number in 2012 over both 2011 and 2010, and although its average sale price was higher than 2011, it still fell way short of the heady highs of 2010. Let's hope that condo sales hit bottom in 2011 and are now on their way up again.

Multi-family sales in Norwood are following the same pattern as its condo sales... higher in volume but still lagging behind in values compared to 2010.

The graphic, historical view of home sales shown below is not really accurate as it goes only through the 2Qtr of 2012; but it gives you a general picture of how things have been selling over the past 5 years.
