August 2017 sales stats suggest annualized appreciation of 6.0% in Franklin which breaks down into the following detail:

  • Sales of Single family residences in Franklin were up to 242 from 210 in August 2016 (and 237 in August 2015)

  • The average home sold was 3,116 sq ft (vs. 3,068 sq ft in 2016 and 3,053 in August 2015).

  • Average sales price was $581,740 in 2017, up 8.4% from $536,603 in 2016 and $485,841 in August 2015.

  • Adjusting to a square foot basis, sales prices increased 6.0% to $186.69 per sq ft from $176.07 in 2016 and $159.14 in 2015.

  • Appreciation over the last 3 months comes in at 4.3%.

  • 27.2% of all sales were new construction

After a big bump in July’s numbers I was waiting to see what might happen with August’s data and again there’s reasonable appreciation at 6%.  Having seen the appreciation pattern broken by July’s 16.2% spike we appear to be reverting to the trend line in August.  I double checked this by going back with a “rolling 12 month average” appreciation number – for August 2017 that number came in at 6.5%.  In my estimations, July was a blip, not a true trend change.
