Corey Sprague, Realtor answered:
Inventory is decent now and interest rates are beautiful. Typically the spring market can produce more houses, however, there is a lot of inventory everywhere. Having said that, Hingham properties go very quickly when priced properly. If you're new to the area, you may want to see what areas you like first and get comfortable with the rhythms of Hingham.

Top rated schools and a commuters paradise make Hingham highly desirable.

Either way, fall market or spring, you can't go wrong.

You may want to take a look at Cohasset as well.
Congratulations with your new job! If you need any assistance, please feel free give me a call.

Best of luck.

Amy - In today's lending environment, you can sometimes wait up until the morning of the closing to get a "clear to close" from the lender. I wouldn't worry too much if these are standard conditions you have already met. The lender likes to play it close to the vest and have the ability to pull the loan if underwriting calls your employer the week before the closing and finds out you no longer have a job or your credit score took a major hit. This is the "new normal". Good luck and enjoy your new home. ... more

As with everything, there are pros and cons to everything. A pro for a private well water is that you don't have to pay a city water bill. But what you would consider a "pro" or "con", I think is a personal choice.

I know someone who had access to the town water system but chose to hook up to a private well instead.

So here is some more detailed information about private wells, and then you can decide for yourself whether you consider it a pro or con.

If you choose to go with a private well, then you might find this link useful

I grew up in the South Shore ... if I can help you with any of your real estate needs, I hope you won't hesitate to contact me.

Cheers! -- Greer

Roxane, I live in Marshfield, (south of Hingham) and I travel the route into Boston during rush hour frequently. I'd say on average that you would have an hour communte to Cambridge...if you have two or more in the car you can use the HOV lane which might speed things up. Additionally, you have the train to South Station and the commuter boat. Hingham give you some great commuter options.
