“There’s something for everyone”

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:

"The days of strolling through downtown with a hot chocolate during the Holiday Stroll are over, but a new tradition is making its way to the top of the tree. 
Franklin is taking a new look at the way it celebrates Christmas. The consensus was that the celebration didn’t go on for long enough. 
That’s why this year, with the guidance of the Downtown Partnership, town businesses grouped together to create a four-day celebration: Franklin Holiday Happenings. 
“We were looking at opportunities to include more businesses,” said Lisa Piana, Executive Director of the Downtown Partnership. “The Holiday Stroll was one evening, and that didn’t fit everyone’s schedule.”

Register O'Donnell Reports Low Inventory Drives May Real Estate Activity



Norfolk County Registry of Deeds

Register O'Donnell Reports Low Inventory Drives May Real Estate Activity

Mirroring trends seen across the United States, Norfolk County experienced reduced real estate sales for the month of May. Additionally, the reduced number of available housing stock inventory caused buyers to bid up real estate prices for both residential and commercial properties.

Register of Deeds William P. O'Donnell noted, "During the month of May, Norfolk County real estate sales totaled 1,631 compared to 1,706 in May 2017. These reduced real estate sales figures tell us there is a spirited competition for a limited number of properties. The result is an increase in both average sale price and total sales volume. It's good news for property sellers, but bad news for those trying to buy, especially for first-time homeowners."

The average sales price for May, combining both residential and commercial sales, was $837,777, a 9% increase compared to the previous year. Total dollar real estate sales volume increased by 6% for the month, coming in at $902 million. "If we continue to see low real estate inventory levels, there is no reason to believe that higher price increases will not continue," noted O'Donnell.

Regarding lending activity, a total of 2,348 mortgages were recorded during May, a 3% decrease from the previous year. However, total mortgage financing for the month was $1.7 billion, a whopping 55% increase year over year. This figure was impacted by a $325 million commercial mortgage taken out against a Holbrook property.

Register O'Donnell noted another new trend that can be an obstacle for potential homeowners. "We have seen a recent uptick in mortgage rates. It will be interesting to see the impact that it has on the overall lending market, especially if mortgage rates rise above 5%."

During May, Norfolk County homeowners continued to take advantage of the Homestead Act. A total of 1,106 Homesteads were filed during the month, a 4% decrease compared to the previous May. "The Homestead Act," stated the Register, "provides limited protection against the forced sale of a homeowner's primary residence to satisfy unsecured debt up to $500,000."

Foreclosure activity for the month of May was a mixed bag. The good news was the number of foreclosure deeds recorded in Norfolk County was 16, a 27% decrease year over year. However, the total number of Notice to Foreclose Mortgage recordings, the first step in the foreclosure process was 67, an increase of 11%.

The Register once again noted the Norfolk County Registry of Deeds continues to work with Quincy Community Action Programs, 617-479-8181 x376, and NeighborWorks Southern Mass, 508-587-0950 to help homeowners who have received a Notice to Foreclose Mortgage document. A third option is to contact the Massachusetts Attorney General's Consumer Advocacy and Response Division (CARD) at 617-727-8400.

Register O'Donnell concluded, "We are once again seeing the impact that low inventory has on the overall real estate market. Without an influx of available housing stock, these trends will likely continue."

Tri-County Regional Celebrates its Fortieth Year

It's been forty years since Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical High School opened its doors to students seeking a vocational education in Franklin, Massachusetts. In 1977, students were seeking vocations in programs still offered today including automotive technology, carpentry, electrical wiring technology, cosmetology, plumbing and graphics to name a few. Since then, those programs have increased to include dental assisting, engineering technology, computer information systems, and legal and protective services.

Today, Tri-County serves over 1000 students from eleven towns and offers adult education for all interests including postsecondary programs, various licensing and certification courses, or offerings for people just looking to have fun. The high school is looking forward to celebrating the anniversary with alumni, students, staff, as well as business and community members.

"This is a year to celebrate Tri-County," said Stephen Dockray, Superintendent. "I'd like to personally invite alumni, retirees, current faculty, parents and friends and members of the community to join us to reminisce with old acquaintances or make new ones, while celebrating this memorable night. Come and visit the school, see the vocational shops, and celebrate everything that is amazing at Tri-County."

The 40 Year Celebration and Benefit is scheduled for Saturday night, April 7, 2018 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM at the high school. The suggested donation is $75.00 per person. Part of the donation includes a benefit component. Any proceeds will go to the Tri-County Education Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to enriching and enhancing educational opportunities for students. For example, providing funds for student competition travel.

"We hope to see you on April 7th for the celebration and the opportunity to give back to our students," said Dockray.
