MA Properties Online 5th in RE/MAX New England

The MA Properties Online Team is pleased to announce that for the 4th straight month they have been in the top 25 teams in RE/MAX New England. In April we were 5th overall! We’d like to thank all of our our past and future clients for their support in this extremely busy 2014 Spring Market, without your support this would not have happened!

If you would like an estimate of what your home would sell for in today’s market I would be more than happy to come by, have a look at your home, and then provide a CMA (comparative market analysis) which will provide you with an estimate of what your home should sell for, along with a marketing plan to get maximum exposure for your home.

The MA Properties Online tagline is “A Data Driven approach to real estate” and so for information on over 40 towns (and a lot more information on buying/selling) look at our website www.mapropertiesonline.com (or if you’re on your smartphone – mobile.mapropertiesonline.com) and if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us on (617) 997 9145, or email at Dani.Fleming@MAPropertiesOnline.com.

15 Nickerson Rd, Lexington – Sold in the First Weekend


Last weekend we put 15 Nickerson Rd, Lexington on the market. The home is immaculate throughout and priced at $1,298,000 for 5 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and is located in a wonderful community that is walking distance to Lexington center, Hastings Elementary School, and Lexington High School; we expected lots of interest! Offers were reviewed on Tuesday and the property went under agreement. The price was substantially over the asking price of $1,298,000. It seems that the high demand for homes in Lexington that we saw in 2013 is continuing into 2014. Here’s the data for the last 12 months – the orange line is the ratio between list and sales price (a value of 100% means it sold for asking). The ratio is greater than 100% for the majority of 2013 – expect the same for 2014 as demand exceeds supply in this very popular town.

This high ratio is (of course) driving up prices as buyers compete for homes:
