The Q2 real estate market in Massachusetts had another great quarter which has Sellers celebrating and leaving Buyers frustrated. Middlesex county sales remained strong after a very busy Q1 – with nearly twice the number of transactions closing during Q2 and an average selling price rising to 100% + of list price. We shared the Q1 numbers as reported in MLS’ Marketwatch Report last month. Here is a comparison of the market in Middlesex county, and more specifically, in the
As of this writing, we still have a few days left in 2016. There may be another sale or two to close this week but I thought before it gets busy again next week, we could take a look at real estate sales in Winchester - specifically single family homes and condos. Although the number of listings were fewer in 2016 - surprisingly down the same 7% for both single family and condos - there was growth in the list price, sale price, and therefore the average price per square foot
If you live in or near Winchester, you know we have many beautiful older homes -- but did you know that many of these venerable homes were added to the National Register of Historic Places 27 years ago today on July 5, 1989? In total, Winchester has 61 Historic Homes and 7 historic districts listed in the National Register. There were only three homes listed before 1989-- the Sanborn House (right), Philemon Wright/Asa Locke Farm (below) and, around the corner from there, the
As most everyone knows, DisneyWorld is the "happiest place on Earth". It is their tagline, and anyone who has experienced DisneyWorld would tend to agree . . . unless they visited during school vacation week. We all have our happy place, whether it is a favorite quiet spot in the park, a vacation house by the ocean, or in front of a fire at your favorite ski lodge. Our happy place, however, should be where we live since we spend the majority of our lives there! Town events

Moving to a new home can be challenging, nerve-wracking, scary . . . . and hopefully very exciting! No matter if you you're in house or an apartment, the hard work is in the packing. Of course, there are companies who will come in and pack, but most people are boxing their belongings, making the calls, arranging for a truck and begging friends for help. No matter how organized you are, a list can be not only handy but absolutely essential as you get closer to the big day.
According to several recent housing reports, although home price increases in Greater Boston fell behind the national average in January, a boost in the total sales recorded indicates a strong start to the year for the overall residential market. Reports show a robust February in real estate sales after a slower start in January. Single-family home sales across the commonwealth rose 30.8 percent in February. Banker & Tradesman reported that single-family home sales across th
It's the question you hear, always with an all knowing answer of, "The Spring", closely following. The Spring Market is a season that most homeowners, especially here in the Northeast, stick to as the best time to list and sell your home. Did you know that there is a sweet spot within those few months that you want to make sure your house is listed for optimal selling opportunity? Zillow recently released a study detailing when the best time is to list depending on state.
We launched our new website this week and I am thrilled with the new look and feel. I hope visitors will find it a friendlier and easier site to maneuver and I am thinking about adding new features, such as this blog, to be more interactive with the clients I work with.

I'm always amazed with how many come back to me years later for their subsequent real est
