The Heat Wave is Over But Boston area Real Estate Still Sizzling

Oh Man was it hot!  

We are actually at the end of a 7 day heat wave here in the Boston area.    Folks were staying indoors or cool by the water.   

(Search here for homes with pools!).   

The beaches were packed, community pools were at capacity and the sprinklers were cranking for people relief instead of just watering the grass.  Boston Area Real Estate heat wave

But the weather wasn't all that is hot!  The local real estate market is sizzling!  

Seems we went from Buyers market to Sellers overnight.  Folks are catching on especially if they have been involved in multiple offer situation.    If you are a buyer looking for a home out there right now, you best be prepared to make a move.    A blog by Patricia Kennedy, a real estate professional in the DC area advises coming in  "Green and Clean" as she calls it.    It's good advice.  Hot Real Estate Market Boston Area July 2013

Just in the past 30 days,

Franklin MA, Realtors put 23 homes up on the pending chart.   Of those 23 homes, 14 were on the market less than 20 days.  

Many of those saw multiple offers. 

In Bellingham MA 11 single family homes hit that pending chart. 

Medfield saw 7 with 4 under less than 20 days on the market.   

Medway MA saw 14 with half of those lasting less than 20 days....and the beat goes on.  

Wrentham 12, Norfolk 10, and Walpole 18.  


So while the weather has cooled a bit,

the heat wave still marches on for the area towns.

Hi Carol,

The heat was sent back here to New Mexico after a short reprieve. Now it's back for a while.

Enjoy the cooler temps and the still Hot Real Estate markets in Franklin.

Best, Clint McKie

Hi Cal, 

I will  compare heat waves of Boston to Houston ( it is hot here until mid October at least) but I am very happy to hear that your market is now a sellers hot market. I hope you and Al sell lots of homes in the next few months!

Carol Ann, It is so difficult showing properties out in the heat, exhausting, hydration is the key and I imagine those poor agents running around in a Heat Wave.
