Mass. foreclosure rate below the national average

Tweet Corelogic reported foreclosure rates in the country, with Massachusetts at approximately 1.1% which is below the national average. The number of foreclosures are down -0.7% from last year.



Mass. home and condo sales way up in July

Tweet At last, a very impressive gain in pending home sales in Massachusetts, increasing by 17 percent last month for single-family homes and by nearly 10 percent for condos. This is great news. No MAR stats on new listings and inventory etc. But an increase in sales bodes well for the market. From MAR’s press […]



Is the home sales picture actually improving?

Tweet There we were, enjoying a nice leisurely summer week, eking out a couple days of non-posting as August began. And what happens? Conflicting reports about the home-sales picture in Massachusetts. As previously noted, the Massachusetts Association of Realtors reported that sales were down and prices up yet again across the state in June. But […]



The inventory blues just won’t go away

Tweet The Massachusetts Association of Realtors released new monthly sales and price numbers for June, showing that statewide sales were down (again) and prices were up (again) for both single-family homes and condos. Nothing really new here. But what caught our attention (again) is that inventories of homes for sale were down 6.9 percent and […]



Lack of housing inventory is getting ridiculous in Boston

Tweet The Massachusetts Association of Realtors has released its May housing numbers. And you guessed it: Sales down again last month in Massachusetts (by 9 percent for single-family homes and 1.1 percent for condos) while prices continue to soar ($347,900 median price for single families, up 7 percent; $316,000 for condos, up 9 percent). The […]



Mother Nature’s Danger Zones for Massachusetts homes

Tweet We’re constantly hearing about major hurricanes in Florida, devastating earthquakes in California, and crazy tornadoes in the Midwest. But we didn’t know that large portions of Massachusetts – i.e. Worcester and Middlesex counties – are actually among the most risky areas of the country in terms of natural disasters destroying homes via hurricanes, tornados […]



Quincy moving fast to replace Marina Bay nightclub with apartments

Tweet It’s pretty obvious the city of Quincy is no big fan of the Ocean Club at Marina Bay. So that may partially explain the fast-track schedule for building a new 352-unit luxury apartment complex by developers Hines, of Houston, and Metlife Inc., of New York. The developers only bought the prime ocean-front property 10 […]



Using aerial drones to sell real estate in Massachusetts

Tweet The Herald has a story this morning on how the FAA is thinking of relaxing rules for commercial uses of aerial drones. One Lexington real estate agent is plowing ahead, FAA be damned: Lexington Realtor Jonathan de Araujo has been using a drone to take aerial shots of properties he is listing since last […]



Lenders go into overdrive to clear out backlog of delinquent mortgages

Tweet For the second straight month, the number of foreclosure filings have spiked in Massachusetts, more than doubling in April compared to the same month in 2013. What’s going on? Is the market tanking again? Is it a return to the ugly past? Not really. Apparently lenders are now going all out to clean up […]
