Is The Spring Market About to Blossom?

Week after week, we've had nothing but more below average temps. here in Massachusetts, along with much of the county.  We've also anxiously watched snow storms, 'winter northeasters' , blizzards, and even a 'winter hurricane' impact our area.   This has not been good for the Spring Market which often start by mid March.   At last, the local weather forecast for the next week has temperatures above freezing, both day and night.  We hope that we've turned the corner and will start to see near normal conditions.

Why all the attention to the weather?  Here in New England, our real estate activity is seasonally effected by the what's happening outside.   There is something special about the earth awakening after the weather with the bushes and trees budding, with the flowers gracing the lawn.

Along with the buyers and sellers now more attentive, so has the activity in our real estate school, Annex Real Estate School.  We just finished two enthusiastic midweek classes, one days and the other in the evening.  An intensive weekend class is about to begin on March 29th.  (There are still a few places available in this class as of this writing.)  We've also notice an increase in the number a applicants taking the Massachusetts Real Estate Salesperson examination, state wide.   For more information, go to or

Annex Real Estate School: An Outlook Of The Quincy Real Estate Market

"Deja Vu" , from the French, lit "already seen".   It's been a cold and snowy winter.  Temperatures have been running below average and the snowfall totals are above average.  The local groundhog, Ms G at Drumlin Farm, has predicted 6 more weeks of winter. This is not a bright outlook, at least of the weather.

But what about the local real estate market? Local?  Are we talking about the real estate market in Quincy, Massachusetts or the Boston's South Shore?  Remembering the adage that 'all real estate is local', we'll concentrate in the Greater Quincy market, Quincy and its' surrounding cities and towns.

The outlook for Quincy's spring Real Estate market looks very promising.  The fall season closed out on a positive note with prices showing a positive trend and inventory and days on the market not becoming excessive.

Here, at Annex Real Estate School, the 2013 year also was good.   We can gauge the public outlook by the real estate students who want to enter the business.  The number of students in the Massachusetts Real Estate Salesperson classes held steady and their attitude has been very positive.  Annex Real Estate School is conveniently located in the Wollaston section of Quincy, MA.  The students came from the communities that you would have expected, Quincy, Milton, Weymouth, Braintree, Hingham, Hyde Park, Jamaica Plain, Mattapan, Dorchester, and Roxbury but also Pembroke,  Plymouth, Worcester, Springfield, Pepperell, and Cape Cod!   So how do you define local?

Last year, in February, we wrote about the outlook for the real estate market.  It may take a while for the temperatures to warm up, but here at Annex Real Estate school, we have a bright outlook.
