brad mackenzie: Chandler Quadrangle, Duxbury, 2013 market report - 02/25/14 11:25 PM
The Chandler Quadrangle is an area that contains about 800 single-family homes. In 2013, 30 of those homes changed hands. I've included two lists, sorted by price and by address, below, showing the particulars of each sale. 
There are four homes for sale in the Chandler Quadrangle now (February 25, 2014). That's pretty low, suggesting correctly that properly prepared, properly priced homes are attracting willing and able buyers to this attractive and popular area. There are few properties for sale, and there are prepared buyers in the market, pre-approvals in hand, looking for the right property when it hits the market.

For the purposes of the contest, I'm not the star of this video, either as best actor or actress. My supporting role is off-screen. (Time off from real estate is one of the main reasons to do real estate in the first place.)
It is music like this that revolves around my soul. It is the inspiration, if not the source, of everything else in my life, personal, professional and social. If you took away the music, my life would be far, far less satisfying.

brad mackenzie: Who sells the highest percentage of their listings in Duxbury? - 02/14/14 11:59 PM
When you want to sell your house for the most money and in the shortest time, there simply isn't any alternative: choosing Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Duxbury is your best business decision, hands down.
Being able to leverage the unparalleled expertise, talents and resources of my office and the firm as a whole is the main reason I choose to work with Coldwell Banker in Duxbury. Size matters when you are looking for results, and there is no substitute for the best knowledge, support and cooperation in the area, and perhaps in the industry.

brad mackenzie: Homes sold in Scituate - November 2013 - 02/06/14 07:45 AM
In Scituate, Massachusetts, while the number of sales is typical for this time of year, both the sales prices and prices paid per square foot have advanced solidly in the past year.
The homes that are selling have been on the market for a short period of time, but have still sold for only 90% of their original asking price, suggesting that the sellers who succeeded in selling were motivated to sell now, in the winter months, and may have realized that their "late-summer pricing" wasn't generating buyer interest. No home that sold was on the market for seven months, and most sold … (7 comments)

brad mackenzie: Hingham Homes for Sale and Sold - January 2014 - 02/06/14 06:23 AM
Hingham home sales were strong in January 2014, led by a $7.15 million sale on Bare Cove Lane. Sales are brisk, and up sharply from last year at this time. The averages and medians are holding steady or improving, to sellers' advantage, slightly.
After averaging out the monthly variations, buyers are still paying about what they have been willing to pay for a Hingham home for the past couple of years. Until more properties come on the market, though, they won't have much time to decide: sales activity has been high, and the supply of homes is tight.

brad mackenzie: Cohasset Homes For Sale and Sold - January 2014 - 02/06/14 01:02 AM
In Cohasset, Massachusetts, January home sales were up compared to the previous January, and while sales prices were below average, the other statistics reflect a very healthy marketplace that stands to benefit both buyers and sellers.
There is still a backlog of properties that are under agreement or have contingent deals. Total inventory is quite low, by historical standards.

brad mackenzie: Luxury Homes For Sale and Sold on the South Shore - January 2014 - 02/06/14 12:11 AM
The luxury homes sector is up 26% year-over-year, based on the number of sales and, in January 2014, sales over $1.25 million doubled to 6 from last January's three.
The most significant transaction was 5 Bare Cove Lane, Hingham, which had been on the market for a year and a half. Originally priced for $10.8 million, it sold for $7.15 million.
Square footage, average sales prices and price per square foot were all continue to log very healthy, robust numbers, both year-over-year and in January. The sector is healthy and attractive to buyers.

brad mackenzie: Duxbury Homes For Sale and Sold - January 2014 - 02/05/14 10:57 PM
In January 2014, Duxbury's real estate market was much more active than the previous January, with 16 closed transactions compared to five in January 2013. 
Prices paid were in line with the 2013 averages. So while prices don't seem to be rising much, properly prepared, properly priced homes are attracting willing and able buyers. There are few properties for sale, and there are prepared buyers in the market, pre-approvals in hand, looking for the right property when it hits the market.

For the second week of February, I'll be on a cruise from Miami to Tortola and around the Caribbean. Now, I wouldn't go on an ordinary cruise. This is no ordinary cruise.

brad mackenzie: Duxbury home price appreciation - 10 year chart - 01/28/14 05:42 AM
Duxbury home price appreciation - 10 year chart
 
Here's a very helpful graph! It shows how Duxbury home prices climbed in the early years of the last decade, topped out in 2005, and then declined to their 2002 levels in 2010, and have remained in a narrow price band for the last three years.
What's important for homeowners to notice and, hopefully, take to heart, is that the prices home buyers paid between 2003 and 2008 were abnormally high. Even from today's price levels, the median price paid per square foot would have to increase 15-25% to begin to reach … (8 comments)

These places and these faces are near and dear to my heart. The painter in the street, the horse rider and several others are the Telluride people. I'm no Broncos fan, but I love the spirit and imagination and talent the people of this wonderful, mystical, magical town in southwest Colorado have put to work in this piece of art. Summit!
