hingham: 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.

hingham: Homes sold in Hingham - 2013 - 01/14/14 02:21 AM
Hingham had a solid year, with relatively quick sales at prices similar to 2012.
For all of 2013, the average price per square foot paid for a Hingham home is up about 4% from 2012 at $313, but since the average house is slightly smaller, the average price paid has been steady.

hingham: Homes sold in Hingham - December 2013 - 01/13/14 03:48 AM
Hingham cleared out the inventory in December! Most of the homes that had been contingent or under agreement in the prior month were sold, only four homes came on the market, and 19 homes sold in December. With just four sales above $1 million, the averages are down a bit, but homes are selling very fast and for most of their asking prices.
Contrast this with the market last month, during which sellers took significant price concessions to make the transactions happen. Sellers this month didn't make significant concessions, so these homes were priced properly from the beginning. Sellers whose homes have been … (3 comments)

hingham: Homes sold in Hingham - November 2013 - 12/10/13 10:45 AM
In Hingham, the real estate market remains quite warm, with statistics returning to their trend levels after unusual conditions last month. Prices, both sales prices and prices paid per square foot, are up about 10% since last year at this time. Sales are steady. No home that sold was on the market for seven months, and most sold in less than five months.
Sellers took significant price concessions from their original prices to make the transactions happen, but they did happen. This is just a generalization and a guess, but it seems as though some sellers are motivated to sell now, … (5 comments)

Homes sold in Hingham - October 2013
In Hingham, the real estate market remains warm, with statistics that need close examination to reveal underlying conditions. There were some quick sales, but there were also four sales that took 330 days or longer. There weren't a lot of multiple-offer situations, but most sales did take place fairly close to the last offering price. There were a few less sales than average, but there are a lot of contingent and under-agreement sales now in the pipeline.
Buyers don't seem to be willing to pay more to buy in Hingham than they have been … (3 comments)

Summer in Hingham, Massachusetts

Hingham is primarily a residential town, but it offers some great summer activities. Some of them are year-round, too.

You can follow one path to the barnyard and visit with the horses, pigs, and chickens. Another path takes you across a grassy avenue before entering The Grove, woods with an open understory reminiscent of a British woodland. A Garden Path, bordered by flowering shrubs and flowers, within the Grove, creates … (5 comments)
