Yes, I agree, Debbie.  The sales price numbers in Cohasset jump around a bit from month to month because there aren't that many sales, so a few outlying numbers can make a big difference to the averages and medians.

Thanks, John!

Hi Brad -- having a strong pre-approval letter in hand is so important in any market and especially in a competitive market.  Good advice.

That doesn't. Seem fair that prices are down, but assessments are up, which I assume raised the ad calories taxes on houses that had lost value on the market??

Yes, Michael, and especially if you want to buy in Cohasset.

The values are on a pretty small sample, Judi, and in this case, last month's numbers had a few outliers that skewed the comparisons this month.

Thanks, Michelle.
