This is my first newsletter "post pandemic" and I am thrilled to think we are through the worse of it. Perhaps 2021 and beyond will be reminiscent of the "Roaring 20s" after the Spanish Flu of 1918?
As you have most likely read and heard, the real estate market is HOT. Home values are up, sales are up and the days to offer are way down.
In Hingham, home sales are up by 26% year-to-date as compared to last year! The median sale price is up by 54% and a 57% increase in total sales. Read below for more details.
What can we expect in 2021?
Here is what I forecast:
1. Continued low interest rates.
2. Still high demand for homes in our communities.
3. Jobs will continue have more workplace flexibility.
4. Home offices will continue to be a high priority.
5. Less COVID concerns!
Bottom line, myself and expert forecasters predict a continued positive real estate market for SELLERS. If you live locally and are thinking about making a change, let's chat. NOW is a great time to think about selling. We need homes!
Awards- This year I have been recognized once again as a top Hingham agent by Boston Magazine! Thank you for your continuous support.
Mortgages- I have provided the latest on mortgage rates from Kevin Byrne with Bluestone Bank. He is my "Go To" person as he is responsive, professional, reliable and offers very competitive mortgage rate options.
As always, if you have any questions about the local real estate market or would like to discuss purchasing or selling a home, I am just a phone call, text or click away.
