What Do All the Recent Price Reductions Mean to the Real Estate Market?

What Do All the Recent Price Reductions Mean to the Real Estate Market?

by Michael Mahoney of eXp Realty
617-615-9435 |


Last week, in a new report from Zillow, it was revealed that there has been a rash of price reductions across the country.

According to the report:

  • There are more price cuts now than a year ago in over two-thirds of the nation’s largest metros
  • About 14% of all listings had a price cut in June
  • Since the beginning of the year, the share of listings with a price cut increased 1.2%
  • This is the greatest January-to-June increase ever reported, and more than double the January-to-June increase last year

Senior Economist Aaron Terrazas from Zillow further explained:

“A rising share of on-market listings are seeing price cuts, though these price cuts are concentrated at the most expensive price-points and primarily in markets that have seen outsized price gains in recent years.”


Price Reductions and the Boston real estate market…

If you are planning to sell your home, you want to price the money at the market price. You do not want to price the property above the market price and hope that someone will come in and overpay.

Many homeowners think that pricing their homes a little OVER market value will leave them with room for negotiation when, in actuality, it just dramatically lessens the demand for their houses.

Instead of the seller trying to ‘win’ the negotiation with one buyer, they should price their house so that demand for the home is maximized. By doing so, the seller will not be fighting with a buyer over the price but will instead have multiple buyers fighting with each other over the house.

Sellers should be more conservative when it comes to the price at which they list their homes – especially sellers in the upper end of each market.


Sellers have been listing their homes at inflated prices hoping a super-hot market will deliver a buyer willing to pay virtually any price to ensure they don’t lose the house. That strategy has worked somewhat successfully over the last two years. However, the time that strategy would have worked may have passed.

One of the most popular restaurants on Federal Hill in Providence is coming to Dedham, MA to Legacy Place
Il Massimo is looking to open by the end of 2018

DEDHAM, MA — A Federal Hill restaurant which is concerned to be one of the best in Rhode Island is coming to Dedham.

Legacy Place announced Tuesday that Il Massimo, which is known for their Rhode Island restaurant, will open a new location at the lifestyle center in Dedham.

“IL Massimo is providing a fresh perspective on the classic trattoria. Their blend of old world tradition with a focus on seasonal ingredients is Italian dining at its finest. They’ve built an incredible legacy in Providence, one we’re thrilled to continue among Legacy Place’s diverse dining offerings,” Whitney MacLeod, General Manager of Legacy Place, said in a release.

The menu will include signature Italian dishes such as spaghettoni alla carbonara with guanciale and farm fresh egg, pesce al guazzetto that includes local fish with little neck clams in a tomato sea broth, and the house-aged rib-eye Fiorentina.

The restaurant recently won two awards from Rhode Island Monthly’s for best restaurant and best lunch in Providence. They also won TripAdvisor’s Award of Excellence.

IL Massimo is scheduled to open by the end of the year and will be located next to Salon Capri.

Turn off the Negative Self Talk Radio

August 21st, 2018 by Michael Mahoney

Turn off the Negative Self Talk Radio

Last night I had a great call with one of the agents I mentor here at eXp Realty. He and I spoke about what turned things for him recently. This person told me about listening to Earl Nightingale’s Strangest Secret. You can find that on Youtube. Earl was considered to be one of the forefathers of personal development.

I suggested a few more people for this person to check out which may help provide some motivation.

Remember “thoughts become things”.

In no particular order, here are some people you can check out on Youtube and get some inspiration from:
1. Les Brown
2. Jim Rohn
3. ET (Eric Thomas) The Hip Hop Preacher

I just wanted to share these with you, because at any given time in the real estate sales business the negative self talk can creep in. By finding and listening to people like the aforementioned you can build a stronger mindset which is going to help you get turn down the negative self-talk radio.

Hope to see you all on Thursday @ the class in Mansfield. If you click the Google calendar icon below, you can add it to your calendar.

If you are looking to take your real estate career, you should consider looking @ eXp Realty. We have many mentoring and training options available.  If you would like to attend a one to one webinar on eXp Realty – send a text to 617-615-9435 or email me @

eXp Realty Agents – What You Say Matters Use Scripts by Tom Ferry

August 20th, 2018 by Michael Mahoney

eXp Realty Agents – What You Say Matters Use Scripts by Tom Ferry

As a real estate agent with eXp Realty, what you say matters. It’s important that we are communicating with our clients in the most effective manner.

A way to ensure that our communication is not a hindrance to our business is to learn scripts. Many people don’t like scripts because they think it’s not them or that it makes them sound funny.  The truth is that every professional business person you interact with has a script. It’s how good businesses run. Why do you think people buy franchises?

A script is really a good way to ensure a good outcome for both you and the client as the process of working together to buy or sell a house unfolds.

In order to be an effective real estate agent, it helps to know what to say to client. If you are just winging it, the client experience will not be as good as it could be for the client. Download the free Tom Ferry Scripts here

this is the link to download all the real estate agents scripts by tom ferry


In order to help some of our agents here at eXp Realty, I have made available to you a book of scripts by Tom Ferry.  I would study these Tom Ferry scripts and internalize them.  Read the scripts that are relevant to your daily business on a continual business and watch your business skills improve.


Tom Ferry is an amazing real estate trainer. You really should check out his book. You can check order Tom’s book here

If I can help you with anything at all, please feel free to reach out to me at 617-615-9435.

Fishermans Feast in Boston’s North End

August 15th, 2018 by Michael Mahoney

Fishermans Feast in Boston’s North End

The Fisherman’s Feast is an annual event that began in Boston in 1910 and is based on a tradition that goes back to the 16th century in Sciacca Sicily. The Feast is based on the devotion of the fishermen from Sciacca to the Madonna del Soccorso (Our Lady of Help). When the fishermen immigrated to America in the early 1900’s, they brought their traditions with them. Today’s Feast is much the same as it was over 100 years ago with lights adorning the street and the smell of sausage in the air. The current Feast is organized by the descendants of those original immigrants and still includes a procession of the Madonna through the streets of the North End.

Each August since 1910, the Feast has been held in Boston’s historic North End on North and Fleet Streets, making it the North End’s oldest continuously running Italian festival. The Feast traditionally starts on Thursday when the statue of the Madonna is moved from her home in the Fisherman’s Club to a chapel at the center of the feast. This will be her home throughout the weekend. Thursday is also when the fishermen that founded the Feast are remembered with a blessing of the fishing waters. Each night and during weekend days there is entertainment on the bandstand and vendors selling food (Italian sausages, calamari, pizza, pasta and much more) as well as crafts. The Feast culminates on Sunday night with the spectacular “Flight of the Angel”.

Own A Property on Marthas Vineyard for $440 a Month

Have you ever been to Marthas Vineyard? If so, you know that the nightly expense for a place to stay can be astronomical.

I quickly looked at TripAdvisor to see how much a night could cost in Vineyard Haven. TripAdvisor had nightly stays well into the mid $500/per night range.

Imagine owning your own piece of heaven for under $500 per month.

Now you can with the property below being offered by Martha’s Vineyard Island Wide Realty’s Carmine Cerone.

See details below.

What if you Could Own a Slice of Martha’s Vineyard for $450 per month?


The property above is located in Vineyard Haven on Martha’s Vineyard. It’s in an old motel in town on the harbor. It’s a 224 square foot room which is in an in town location. The property is located at 60 Beach in Tisbury, MA on the Island of Martha’s Vineyard. The price of this property is $87,500.  If you were to put down 20% and finance the remainder at 5% interest the monthly payment with taxes would be around $440 per month. See the condo here

Here are the remarks from the listing agent on the MLSPIN

On Vineyard Haven Harbor, this 2nd floor, one bedroom unit has wonderful clear views of the harbor and Sound beyond. Direct private beach access and walk to ferry, town, shopping, restaurants. No need for a car. The room with wood floors, is fully furnished with queen bed, lounge chairs, mini-fridge, flat screen TV and heat/air conditioner. Just outside your door a deck with table and chairs for enjoying the views and activity of the boats in the Harbor. Courtyard area with picnic tables and bbq. Beach has chairs for lounging and tanning. When you are not using the condo, the onsite management will rent and maintain it for you. A little piece of the Vineyard to enjoy in the summer, or as an investment, or both.

Once you own this little piece of heaven, you can begin exploring the The Best Things to Do in Vineyard Haven

How to Pay for Your Slice of Heaven?

If you don’t have the money to pay cash for a place like this there are many options available. If you own a home, you could and have owned it for a little while you could do a cash out refinance or perhaps a home equity line of credit.  If you need a good referral for someone to help you explore this, it would be a please to help you find the right lender/banker whether for this or making another investment in real estate.  In order to see how much equity you have in your property, you may want to get a quick valuation at

Greater Boston Real Estate Report for
August 3 2018

The Massachusetts Association of Realtors just released their data on June 2018 in their Market One Sheet Report which provides a quick overview of the MA Market and Trends. The overview of this report is below.

Have a question about the value of your house?

As you will see, the report shows that inventory is still down. If you know someone with the Pepto Bismol Pink Bathroom, their house is a good candidate for this market

Just as a sidebar, if you are considering putting your property on the market – you need to be careful on pricing.
Many homeowners will look at the lower inventory levels and attempt to overprice a property. This is a mistake we see playing out time and time again in the market today. Owners attempt an higher list price thinking the buyer will overpay since there is less than normal inventory. Ultimately, the buyers purchase another property and then the seller has to reduce their price sometimes to at or below market value. There is more to the process than the inventory level.

National Real Estate Stats for June 2018

National Real Estate Stats for June 2018

June 2018 Real Estate Stats by National Association of Realtors

In a press release on Tuesday, the National Association of Realtors reported that homes on the market are in short supply and it’s having an effect on the quantity of sales and also pushing prices to new highs.

WASHINGTON (July 23, 2018) — Existing-home sales decreased for the third straight month in June, as declines in the South and West exceeded sales gains in the Northeast and Midwest, according to the National Association of Realtors®. The ongoing supply and demand imbalance helped push June’s median sales price to a new all-time high.

Lawrence Yun - Chief Economist National Association of Realtors

Here is what the National Association of Realtors Chief Economist had to say:

The root cause is without a doubt the severe housing shortage that is not
releasing its grip on the nation’s housing market. What is for sale
in most areas is going under contract very fast and in many cases, has multiple offers. This dynamic is keeping home price growth elevated, pricing out would-be buyers and ultimately slowing sales.”

“It’s important to note that despite the modest year-over-year
rise in inventory, the current level is far from what’s needed
to satisfy demand levels,” added Yun. “Furthermore,
it remains to be seen if this modest increase will stick,
given the fact that the robust economy is bringing more
interested buyers into the market, and new home
construction is failing to keep up.”

Lawrence Yun – National Association of Realtors
July 23, 2018 Press Release
Watch Lawrence Yun on CNBC

What’s Happening in the Northeast

June existing-home sales in the Northeast jumped 5.9 percent to an annual rate of 720,000, but are still 4.0 percent below a year ago. The median price in the Northeast was $305,900, which is up 3.3 percent from June 2017.

First Time Buyers Were a 3rd of the Market

First-time buyers were 31 percent of sales in June, which is unchanged from last month and down from 32 percent year ago. NAR’s 2017 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers – released in late 2017 – revealed that the annual share of first-time buyers was 34 percent.

Show me the Money

All-cash sales were 22 percent of transactions in June, up from 21 percent in May and 18 percent a year ago. Individual investors, who account for many cash sales, purchased 13 percent of homes in June, down from 15 percent in May and unchanged from a year ago.

Is Now the Time to Sell?

If you have a home that you believe is sub-par for the market, now would be the time to unload the property. With the supply as low as it is, you will be able to sell the property despite the condition. If your horizon to sell was a couple of years out, you may consider moving that up. I am not a fortune teller, but we do have cycles in the economy, why not go out on top.

Mortgage Rates at the National Level

Mortgage rates dropped slightly last week, but overall, they were mostly flat, offering some temporary relief to borrowers.

Mixed economic data this week prompted mortgage rates to remain in mostly a holding pattern, says Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “Manufacturing output and consumer spending showed improvements, but construction activity was a disappointment,” Khater says.
“This meant there was no driving force to move mortgage rates in any meaningful way, which has been the theme in the last two months. That’s news for price-sensitive home shoppers, given that this stability in borrowing costs allows them a little extra time to find the right home.”

Freddie Mac reports the following national averages with mortgage rates for the week ending July 19:
