Residential property values, 2000 to 2018

Total property value

This “violin” graph displays the distribution of home values in Hawley Farms since 2000. The shapes for each year are widest at the property value where the most homes are located. Larger “violins” indicate more homes, while smaller shapes indicate fewer. The thin line through the graph shows the median home value for each year.

The table below contains the median home value for each year from 2000 to 2018. Values are adjusted to 2018 dollars, and properties assessed at $0 are ommitted. This is because those properties are not literally worth nothing. The city assesses them at $0 because they are owned by an entity which does not pay property taxes; therefore they contribute nothing to the city’s tax base directly.

Value per square foot

This graph is similar to the graph above, except it shows property value per square foot, rather than the total. These statistics are calculated by dividing the value of improvements made to the parcel (namely the building) by the total useable floor area of the structure in square feet.

Residential units

The next three graphs show trends in the number of housing units and their occupancy status. “Owner-occupied” means the property owner lists that location as their mailing address. Additional units at each parcel may be rented, so the “owner-occupied” number given here should be understood as an upper bound; the real number is almost certainly lower. Non-owner-occupied units may either be rented or vacant. These three graphs show total units, so (for example) every one duplex counts as 2 units.

This table compares the owner-occupancy status before and after each sale for properties coded as “Residential” or “Condominium” in the previous table. As explained above, “owner-occupancy” means the property owner lists that parcel as their mailing address. Additional units at an owner-occupied address may be vacant or rented. In this table “other occupied” simply means the property owner does not maintain their mailing address at that location. The property could be rented, or it could be vacant.

  • If a property was coded as owner-occupied in the year prior to the sale, and it is still coded that way in the first available property record after the sale date, it is classified as “Remain owner-occupied.”
  • A property coded “owner-occupied” before the sale, but not after is classified as “Owner-occupied to other”
  • A property not coded “owner-occupied” before a sale, and which maintains that status after the sale, is classified “Remain other occupied.”
  • Properties which aren’t “owner-occupied” prior to the sale but become so afterward are classified “Other to owner-occupied.”
