market report: 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.

market report: 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)

market report: 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.

market report: 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.

market report: Homes sold in Norwell - December 2013 - 01/21/14 08:29 AM

Norwell, Massachusetts, has become a surging little market on the South Shore over the past year. December was better than a year ago, and all the numbers have been moving in the direction of sellers' advantage most of the year.
Many market watchers and professional participants expect a substantial number of homes to come on the market this spring but, for the time being, there aren't many available. With sales happening promptly and at higher prices (and higher prices per square foot), sellers are in a strong position. 
Buyers with a pre-approval in hand will be in a good position to act, if … (5 comments)

market report: Home Sales in Plymouth, MA, in the second half of 2013 - 01/20/14 02:04 AM

In Plymouth, Massachusetts, the number of sales has been rising, the average price is up almost 7% in the second half of 2013 compared to the second half of 2012, the price paid per square foot is up over 9% in the same period, and the number of days homes take to sell has been falling.
The median home shows similar improvement over the same period.
Together with fewer homes coming to market, this indicates a market that is beginning to favor sellers.
Still, buyers have several good options in every price range. With a pre-approval in hand, prepared buyers should be able … (4 comments)

market report: Homes sold in Plymouth - December 2013 - 01/19/14 11:21 AM

In Plymouth, Massachusetts, sales were steady in December 2013 compared to December 2012, but the prices were lower than average, when compared to November, last December and the second half of 2012.
December is often a tough month from which to draw conclusions, since year-end and seasonal patterns tend to obscure longer-term trends and create other anomalies. Nevertheless, there was a drawdown in the number of homes available at the same time that the number of days on market fell.
Together with the other data, this indicates a market that is beginning to favor sellers, even though that advantage has … (4 comments)

Overall, what we saw in Cohasset in 2013 was a wave of buying by people willing to buy, bigger, more expensive homes. In fact, there were 41 sales for more than $1 million, compared to 28 … (6 comments)

market report: 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.

market report: 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)

market report: Homes sold in Cohasset - December 2013 - 01/08/14 07:50 AM
The pace of home sales in Cohasset, Massachusetts, was sleepy during December, and the average sales price was down, since there weren't as many million-dollar sales as there have been most months in 2013.
There is still a backlog of properties that are under agreement or have contingent deals. Total inventory is quite low, by historical standards.

market report: Luxury Homes Sold on the South Shore - December 2013 - 01/06/14 10:18 AM
The luxury sector represents the top 10% of homes by price in the South Shore Massachusetts real estate market: homes with a sales price of $1.25 million or more.

The luxury homes sector is up 26% year-over-year, based on the number of sales.
While the low number of sales is typical of this time of year, the anomalous characteristics of any single sale can have an exaggerated effect on the averages, rendering the monthly comparison with the longer term less useful.
In particular, one $6.75 million sale pulled up the averages for the other four sales, which were all between … (4 comments)
