In just about every one of our towns over the past 12 months we’ve seen a late spring and a late fall market. The graph for Braintree clearly shows this. What it also shows is the current inventory of homes is extremely low. (Hint: click on a chart to see a larger view.)
While Hingham’s fall market was considerably less active than springtime, its current inventory is equally thin. Homes on the market in Hull reflect the seasonality of that community. Hanover is very much the same as Braintree with an equally low current inventory.
Norwell remaining strong from the spring of 2013 through the fall and, like the other towns, now has a very low inventory of property for
The city of Quincy is a much larger market but it too is lacking an adequate supply of homes. Scituate, like Hull, did not see a significant drop over the summer months but now it to lacks inventory. In the town of Weymouth the fall market was a bit more robust than springtime.
