Scituate Homes for Sale showed continued price improvement for the month ending December 2010 when compared to the similar period a year prior.  This is a slightly better performance than was seen in neighboring towns. Last month, ending 12/31/2010, we saw 13 homes sell at an average sales price ...
Prices were a little softer in Marshfield this past December compared to the same period a year ago.  With that said, the more recent December did not have  the benefit of The First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit and what was thought to be it's expiration at the month's end.  So last month we saw 12 ...

The Marshfield condo market continued to chug along showing a relative firmness in pricing on slightly softer volume.  For the month of November 2010,  we saw four condos sell at an average sales price of $263,500 or $198 per square foot.  This is fair comparison to the November period of 2009 th...
The Hull Condo market showed that it has continued its anemic pace turning in only one more sale this past November than in the same period one year prior.  Even with volume doubling, from one unit to two sold units, prices remained firm, or withing a ten percent band.  The one unit that sold in ...
The Wemouth Real Estate Market saw a slow down in the volume of sold condos for the month of November 2010 compared to the year prior.  Last month we saw 7 condos sell at an average sales price of $184,250 or roughly $195 per square foot.  In the same month one year prior, we saw an astounding 30...
