McGeough Lamacchia compiled data provided by The Warren Group that compared home sales for the third quarter of 2013 to home sales for the same period in 2012.

McGeough Lamacchia Realty ran the report 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 the third quarter of 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 saw that all of them had characteristics home buyers are looking for when choosing where to live.

“These towns all have what home buyers are looking for: good schools, plenty of green space, proximity to highways, and affordability,” says Anthony Lamacchia.

“A few of these towns made our list in the last quarter,” says John McGeough. “Both Boxford and Pepperell appeared in the top 10 in the second quarter this year and again in Q3.”

The third quarter this year has been strong for home sales in Massachusetts. July 2013 home sales increased 17 percent compared to July of 2012, August home sales increased 8 percent compared to August of 2012, and September home sales increased 15 percent compared to September of last year.

The data also showed median home prices for many towns on this list for the third quarter increased significantly compared to the third quarter in 2012. The median sale price for homes in Hopedale, which ranked at the top of the list, increased 21 percent. The median home prices in Middleton, which ranked 5th on the list, increased 7 percent.

“This list shows that home sale increases aren't limited to just one area,” says John McGeough. “Home sales continue to be strong in many towns in Massachusetts.”
