Waltham, MA (PRWEB) January 30, 2014
McGeough Lamacchia Realty compiled data provided by The Warren Group that compared home sales in 2013 to home sales in 2012 to find out which towns in Massachusetts showed the largest increases in the number of home sales, factors which the company uses to determine whether a town is becoming a sought after location for homeowners.
Towns had to have a minimum of 25 home sales in 2013 to be considered for the list.
John McGeough and Anthony Lamacchia, co-brokers and owners of McGeough Lamacchia, examined the list of the popular towns in Massachusetts and noted that half of the towns had home sales that were new construction and that 9 of the 13 Massachusetts counties are represented in this list.
Year over year home sales in Massachusetts in 2013 showed strong gains in 2013 for both the number of home sales and the average selling prices compared to 2012. The number of home sales increased 6 percent compared to 2012, which is impressive considering there were fewer homes available for sale than in 2012. There were 77,181 home sales in Massachusetts in 2013 compared to 72,820 sales in 2012 and 60,429 in 2011.
