Waltham, MA (PRWEB) July 31, 2014
McGeough Lamacchia compiled data provided by The Warren Group that compares home sales from April 1, 2014 to June 30, 2014. The report shows the Top 25 Towns with the largest increases in the number of home sales for the second quarter of 2014, a factor which the company uses to determine whether a town is becoming a sought after location for homeowners. Towns had to have a minimum of 50 home sales for the quarter to be considered for the list. .
John McGeough and Anthony Lamacchia, co-brokers and owners of McGeough Lamacchia, examined the list of the hottest towns in Massachusetts and saw that all of them had characteristics home buyers are looking for when choosing where to live: amenities like shopping, parks, and cultural attractions, affordability, good school systems and commutes, low crime rates and an overall high quality of life.
"Since we sell homes in most of these towns," says Anthony Lamacchia, "we enjoy preparing this list on a quarterly basis to better educate our clients."
"Several of the towns on this quarter’s list," says John McGeough, "such as Westborough, Newburyport, and East Boston, have appeared in the company's 25 Hottest Towns lists before."
The data also showed median home prices for many towns on this list for the second quarter increased significantly compared to the second quarter in 2013. The median sale price for homes in Wakefield, which ranked third in the list, increased 14 percent. The median home prices in Abington, which ranked 7th on the list, increased 13 percent.
