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.

Gary Ferro answered:
Many subjective variables to consider: price of the home, what has the homes sold and for how much in that neighborhood, the condition of this home, etc. Your realtor should be familiar with the neighborhood to help you make the right offer and decision. If you signed a buyer agency agreement, your realtor is the one to ask these questions. ... more

Typically the HOA is a monthly fee. Email me this listing and I'll peel back the layers, and answer your additional question, ok?

Brian G Shifrin Esq answered:
If you are just looking at the Market Trends graph for one town or community be sure to look at the graph below it that indicates the number of transactions. In only Marblehead, there is a relatively small number of sales that go into the data on the grid. I do not believe there is a deep decline in the market. Without further investigation, I would guess the decline in the graph is something as simple as the more recent sales are inferior homes to the ones sold 3-12 months ago. When there is a small set of data any number of things can skew the graph. Hope this helps.

Greer Swiston answered:
We are a free market and therefore everything is negotiable.

That said, I view asking price as an advertising tool. Depending on your market, it could be the hoped for desired price, or it could be the lowest acceptable price. It depends on the market and how well the seller understands the value of his/her house.

As a buyer, it is best to know the fair market value of the property. You base your information on the availability of other properties like it in the market and the value to you and the value to the seller. The free market will determine the rest.

1. If you want the apartment and no one else wants it and the seller must sell, then you could offer less than asking and the seller may accept it.
2. If you want the apartment and there is also other interest by others and the seller is confident that he/she will get his price, you may only get the property if you offer close or at the seller's asking price.
3. If you want the apartment and so do many many other people and the seller is receiving MULTIPLE offers, then if you want to be the one to get the apartment, you may have to offer OVER asking price to security the purchase.

If you aren't workng with an experienced buyer's agent, consider hiring one to help you best negotiate for the property you wish to acquire.

Hi Jill

When you see /sold/ as part of the URL the property is no longer for sale and is instead being used to gather names and emails to sell as leads.
I would contact a local real estate professional to help with this answer and to save time and money.
(Not me, I'm on the Cape, but I can help you choose a local pro if you want help doing so.)
