By
Managing Real Estate Broker with Brad MacKenzie

5 Bare Cove Lane, Hingham, Homes sold in Hingham January 2104Hingham home sales were strong in January 2014, led by a $7.15 million sale on Bare Cove Lane. Sales are brisk, and up sharply from last year at this time. The averages and medians are holding steady or improving, to sellers' advantage, slightly.

After averaging out the monthly variations, buyers are still paying about what they have been willing to pay for a Hingham home for the past couple of years. Until more properties come on the market, though, they won't have much time to decide: sales activity has been high, and the supply of homes is tight.
