Holliston’s August Housing Market

As our Summer comes to a close, not only are the kids prepping to get back to school, but the buzz is that Buyers and Sellers are gearing up for an active real estate market in Holliston.

The MAhome Team of Realty Executives would like to report on the Holliston market so far in 2013.

How are prices doing?

The median price of a single family home is $400,000.  This is an 8.1% increase from 2012 YTD.

How long does it take to sell?

The average days on market this year is 59 days; last year it was 114 days.

Are more homes selling this year?

Holliston has 101 closed sales so far in 2013.  This is an increase of 16% from 2012 sales YTD.

How close to List Price are sellers receiving?

The ratio of Selling Price to the homes Listing Price is 99%!


In the 14 years that I have been a  Realtor in the area, this year certainly has been the most refreshing to be a part of.  By no means is it “easy” to navigate selling or buying a home, but finally sellers are enjoying some rising values and buyers are facing very low interest rates.

The major hurdle facing this marketplace is a lack of inventory.  When there are not a lot of homes to sell, it does the following:

The right time to buy or sell a home is when you are ready to make the change.  Just like stock picking, trying to time the market in real estate is very difficult.  An increase in prices and low interest rates should be all the incentive necessary to get Buyers off the fence to shop this Fall!

Want to Stop Those Credit Card Offers?

Ok, I had it with all of these credit card offers coming in the mail!  Whether it is a disinterest in another card, feeling environmental about the waste of paper, or desire not to be tempted, I want it to STOP.

I found a website that, with 3 minutes of work, can register you to be off of many credit card lists for 5 years.

Go to for a short form online to remove yourself for 5 years.

Write to the firm if you want it to be done permanently!

Everybody Won on Earth Day

Earth Day is always April 22nd, but this year the celebration started early on last Saturday morning.

The 2nd annual Shredding Day, hosted by Ed & Doriane Daniels of Realty Executives, welcomed 144 carloads of electronics to recycle & papers to be shred.

The event raised $545 for Friends of the Holliston Trails.  “Thank you for all the generous donations at this free event,” said Ed Daniels.  “Visitors like the benefits of secure recycling and then are kind enough to support the town’s trails.  A win-win for both.”

Raffle prizes donated by Pepperoncini’s Pizzeria, Long Distance Tire, The Henry Studio, and Realty Executives were delivered to some lucky winners.

At the annual event, there is secure, on-site shredding of documents conducted by Universal Shredding.  Participants dump their paperwork into a bin and then watch on a monitor as the truck destroys it.  The Universal Shredding employee working the truck stated that the turnout was the largest he has ever had at these types of events.

A container holding hundreds of electronics was also collected at this event.  Gallo Movers donates a COW (or Container on Wheels) and transports it over to an electronics recycling firm.  This year they had a 16’ container and were able to fill it about 80%.

Lastly, PlanetAid had a truck on site for clothing, shoes and book collection.

Thanks also go out to Ahronian Landscaping for handing out seedlings at the event, Newfound Farm as a sponsor, and the Holliston Trails Committee for being at the event.

If you would like to participate in next year’s Earth Day event, it is a great way to spend a few hours of reuse/recycle activities for the environment, and you are welcome. Charlie Russo, of The Little Green Phonebook, and Chris Sahagian, of MBF Printing, were very helpful in guiding visitors thru the event.

Frustrated by Home Listings Already Under Contract?

In all the infinite wisdom of the Multiple Listing Service in Massachusetts, they created a special notation to listings that were under contract, but that still were awaiting results of a “condition”.

This is known as “Flagging the listing”.

These conditions would include:

Ok, that last one was the real reason this status was used! Read the rest of this entry »

Breaking Tenant Lease for Domestic Violence Now OK

The MA Legislature passed a law protecting victims of domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assult.  Massachusetts landlords take note.

Under the bill, a victim will be able to break a lease without undue financial penalty if his or her safety is in jeopardy or request a change of locks on the unit.

Tenants should give written notice to landlords of their situation, in advance.  Landlords can request independant verification as to the status, but it must be kept confidential.  Sounds a bit of a gray area there, but any reasonable landlord should be able to work it through in these situations, right??

Our Team works with landlords and tenants as a small part of our business, but we also are Landlords ourselves.  We own a 14 unit apartment building which requires us to keep up with these types of laws.  If The MAhome Team can be of service you as a MA tenant or landlord, please feel free to contact us.

Ed & Doriane Daniels, of Realty Executives – Boston West, can be reached at 508-341-7880 or [email protected].  For any real estate needs in Metrowest Boston, please call on us anytime.
