Brad, it looks like your market is rising a bit.  The August slump is probably because folks were concentrating on getting their children back to school.  Our average prices are a fraction of yours.  I hope a bunch of them were your sales!

Hi Brad -- it appears home buyers have quite a few choices in Cohasset.   Considering the still favorable mortgage interest rates, this may be the right time for many to move up to this very desirable area.

126 days on market still seems very reasonable for this type of property. This is a good snapshot of the Cohasset real estate market.
