I was brought up in Oak Square Brighton (1960-1986). I hear in the 60's it was a heavy drug traffic place (I was young) but what wasn't! It was an AWESOME place to grow up. I'm an original OLP grammar and high school gal. I loved my life in Brighton. I think I'm the last of a dying bread there as far as original single family people. I still many friends in the old neighborhood. Along with the last of my generation it's all yuppies and transplants but that's par for any course right? I'm a transplant to Tucson, Arizona so we all come from somewhere and I'm proud to say I come from Brighton, MA :) It will always be HOME. :) ... more

There are positives and negatives to all communities. Brockton has a good inventory of fairly priced homes, but with good inventory also means when you go to resell you may have more competition.

What is your ideal location? Are schools important? Do you need public transportation? How far do you want to commute? There maybe opportunities in the community you'd like to settle down in.

Hi Mario. I know you asked this question a while ago but never got an answer. Here you go...

In 2014, houses that sold in Swampscott averaged 91 days on market, and sold for about $527k (avg).

So far in 2015, we're up to 94 days on market and $557k sales price.

Without some details about the price point, size of house, location in Southborough, is hard to give an exact answer. In the last 6 months, 77 homes sold. Average Days to Offer was 33 days. Based on that high level market statistic, houses are moving, but real estate is very local, down to neighborhood, so I would need for details about your search parameters to give a more exact answer. ... more

Michele Holland answered:
Typically this time of year puts pressure on all properties on the market, as yet unsold. It will depend on the home's price range. Cherie is quite right that homes in certain ranges are indeed going up despite the time of year. Homes that are priced between 5-600K are showing an increase in number sold as well as sold price of 3%, YOY (year over year). Homes that are in the 6-800K (source Terradata services bases searches from the MLS as well as off line sold homes) are indeed showing a decrease. I think it is because the sort of properties that are sought here would appeal to a buyer(s) that are searching for high scoring schools and want a comfortable home of 3-4 bedrooms, not especially a luxury home. Those will generally take a bit longer to sell, especially in the fall. But sell they do! Spring is a hot market for those motivated by a school calendar, but we have relocation buyers searching all year, those these are fewer in number. I think the 128 and 495 routes hold some influence as well. People want the closest commute that they can afford, and may use these as cut off points.
It is so important to drill down to the most vital data to get a clear answer.
I would be happy to discuss this further with you.

Malden is a mildly unsafe city, even though it is nice and sunny as a picture. The only surrounding community that is still very safe is Stoneham. Safer parts of Malden are Forestdale, Oak Grove, and the West End. On average, the more north or west you are the better, yes closer to Stoneham. However, the Linden section is decent. Some parts of Melrose are also safe, except that I would avoid the parts near Melrose Square. ... more

Yes. The supply of homes on the market is low. The mortgage rates are still low and the market is on an upswing.
