Homes sold in Hingham - October 2013

30 Hobart Street, Homes sold in Hingham October 2013

In Hingham, the real estate market remains warm, with statistics that need close examination to reveal underlying conditions. There were some quick sales, but there were also four sales that took 330 days or longer. There weren't a lot of multiple-offer situations, but most sales did take place fairly close to the last offering price. There were a few less sales than average, but there are a lot of contingent and under-agreement sales now in the pipeline.

Buyers don't seem to be willing to pay more to buy in Hingham than they have been in the recent past. As more homes come on the market than are selling, buyers continue to have more options at less favorable prices, but after smoothing out the different short-term blips in the data, buyers are only paying more or less the same amount as they have for the past year.
