norwell: 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)

norwell: Homes sold in Norwell - November 2013 - 12/12/13 02:19 AM

In Norwell, Massachusetts, sales have slowed, and last month's average sale price was low compared to the trend. The prices paid per square foot were below trend also. Surging prices this summer have been offset now in the slower winter months. With a small inventory, sellers remain in a strong position, but note that most of the recent sales came from homes that had been on the market for only a few months. Buyers with a pre-approval in hand will be in a good position to act when a properly-priced home they are interested in purchasing comes on the market.

Why I Love Massachusetts in Autumn
Here are the rest of the pictures that I would have entered in my contest blog if I hadn't been constrained to one picture.

I'm not sure how to describe what is so special about this beauty. The picture says more than a thousand words ever could. If you've never experienced Fall Colors in New England, or the crisp weather that begins to flow through here in early October, you haven't really lived. At a minimum, you owe yourself a bucket-list … (3 comments)
