The cold winters have really taken a toll on Milton MA real estate.  Yet again, the polar vortex has plunged the Northeast into sub-zero weather, burying us under several inches of snow.  Here is your Milton MA Home Sales Update for February 2015. According to the MLS Property Information Network, there were a total of nine Milton MA homes sold in February 2015.  While this is a significant drop from the 20 homes sold last month, it is the exact same amount as those sold in February 2014.  Nine seems to be a magical number for the Milton MA market this month.  Both the lowest priced home (a 1500 sq ft Colonial that sold for $350,000) and the highest priced home (a 2556 sq ft Columbine Colonial that sold for $890,000) were purchased after just nine days on the market.

I have today; that is all.  My today is what I have to work with. This today will make my tomorrow and provide me memories of my yesterday's.  Not taking my yesterday's into today allows me to build a new today which builds the new tomorrow.  Doing the best I can with my today gives me solace and provides me strength. The days in real estate are varied and hectic.  Calls come in, requests are made while schedules must be kept, it can be chaotic.  It is easy to get lost with all the moving parts, get distracted, confused then dazed.  With goals in view it is a bit easier to remember where you are headed and today is the day to do some paddling in that direction.  Being in view of what you want makes it easier to remember where you want to go. I have today: that is all.  And today I want ...

Many people take this time of the year to look at the road that lies ahead, making their resolutions and planning out how to accomplish their goals.  However, it is hard to avoid the rush of nostalgia.  It is normal to look back at how last year affected you and your family.  In that vein, may I present your 2014 Milton MA home sales year in review. The MLS Property Information Network reported that a total of 243 Milton MA homes were sold during 2014.  This is an 11% increase from the 273 sold in 2013.  One lucky Buyer was able to purchase a 1056 square foot, 3 bed/1 bath Cape-style home via an estate sale for $165,000 after just 15 days on the market.  The highest price paid by a Milton MA Buyer was $2,400,000 for a 7 bed/5.5 bath, 6155 square foot Colonial on 7.33 acres of land.
