Homes sold in Cohasset - December 2013

Managing Real Estate Broker with Brad MacKenzie

32 Norman Todd, Cohasset, Sold December 2013The pace of home sales in Cohasset, Massachusetts, was sleepy during December, and the average sales price was down, since there weren't as many million-dollar sales as there have been most months in 2013.

There is still a backlog of properties that are under agreement or have contingent deals. Total inventory is quite low, by historical standards.

I hope so, too, Debbie. That would make their home transaction easier for them, and put more money in their pockets.
