South Shore Real Estate Market Report: June 2012

| July 10, 2012 | 0 Comments

Well just as in months past, June has proven to be another busy month for the South Shore real estate market. For the first time in 2 Years (June 2010) over 700 single family homes have been sold on the South Shore.  (There is a case to be made that the first time home buyer tax credit heavily influenced those transactions in 2010). So this past June’s activity seems to be a result of pure optimism.

Quincy & Weymouth both had a particularly impressive month because not only were they leaders in Number of Homes Sold, they were also leaders in Sale Price to Original List Price and Shortest Average Time on Market.
