Greater Boston Real Estate Update by Realtor Michael Mahoney

April 28th, 2019 by Michael Mahoney

Greater Boston Real Estate Report Update by Realtor Michael Mahoney
March 2019

The Massachusetts Association of Realtors® (MAR) reported today that closed sales for single-family homes increased year-over-year from last March while condominium closed sales saw a decrease. This month saw a six percent increase in median price for single-family homes and a five percent decrease in median price for condominiums compared to last year. March also saw the lowest number of single-family homes for sale in the month of March since MAR began reporting the data in 2004. However, this is the third month in a row of year-over year condominium inventory increases.

Boston Real Estate Market January 21 2019

January 21st, 2019 by Michael Mahoney

This week the median list price for Boston, MA is $750,000 with the market action index hovering around 33. This is less than last month’s market action index of 37. Inventory has held steady at or around 89.

Market Action Index

The Market Action Index answers the question “How’s the Market?” by measuring the current rate of sale versus the amount of the inventory. Index above 30 implies Seller’s Market conditions. Below 30, conditions favor the buyer.

Slight Seller’s Advantage

The market has been cooling over time and prices plateaued for a while. Despite the consistent decrease in MAI, we’re in the Seller’s zone. Watch for changes in MAI. If the MAI resumes its climb, prices will likely follow suit. If the MAI drops consistently or falls into the Buyer’s zone, watch for downward pressure on prices.

Should I Join eXp Realty?

September 21st, 2018 by Michael Mahoney

Should I Join eXp Realty?

There are a lot of real estate agents joining eXp Realty this year. Since I joined around January 2018, the company has doubled in size.  As a result of all these agents signing on,  many people call me to ask me the following question – “Should I Join eXp Realty?”

The answer to the question really depends. It depends on you. It’s not the brokerage for everyone. Every agent has their own specific needs and wants.

What I can say for sure is the following:

If you like paying desk fees and royalty fees and enjoy hearing about the vacation home your broker bought with your commissions, then you should stay where you are.

At eXp Realty, there are no desk fees. No royalty fees. No franchise fees. Agents keep 80-100% of their commissions. eXp Realty also offers every agent the unique opportunity to become a shareholder in their own company, and celebrate the company’s financial success.

The bottomline for mos agents is that this will be a very cost effective solution for them to operate their real estate practice within. The following is the current (9/18/2018) costs associated with affiliating with eXp Realty.

These are the costs associated with joining exp realty. This is helpful to understand while you are wondering if you should join exp realty

What’s different about eXp Realty?

Many agents are accustomed to “going to the office” even though after 17 years I pretty much stopped going into an office a long time ago.

The basis of eXp Realty is that it is an online cloud brokerage. Essentially, all brokerage operations and interaction with the back end of the company are done over the internet using an online campus where you communicate in real time with staff and support.

It’s an amazing platform where you don’t have to drive to the office to track down a check or a form that you need for your transaction. You can visit the brokerage operations online and speak with staff in real time from anywhere you are.  Remember the last time you drove to the office to track something down only to find out that the support staff member was not available that day to help because they were off site?

Bricks and Mortar Brokerages Versus Online Brokerages Like eXp Realty

As an agent who has been at it a long time, I pretty much have not used the office in very long time. Although for many years, I always maintained a desk or an office in the brokerage, I realized that I never really used the office space that I was paying for. I have been with Coldwell Banker, Re/Max and Keller Williams. Each model has it’s own pros and cons.  I would say that I ultimately enjoyed all my time with Keller Williams the most in that it’s model aligned best with my personality.

However, when I was shown eXp Realty by some former Keller Williams agents it was a no brainer for me.

After realizing how much I was paying the broker that I was with for office space I did not use, eXp Realty was a “no brainer for me”.  Just in the commission splits alone, I probably saved over $10,000 a year basically doing the same business without the excessive office charges for space that was not being used. If you add in the monthly expenses, and the revenue sharing plus the stock awards it’s probably closer to a $15,000 per year savings.

Does Having an Office Space at The Street Matter?

Today, the clients are so mobile, they almost prefer to have you meet them at locations that work for them. In the Boston area where I work, there is pretty much a Panera or Starbucks in every town so I often meet clients there.

Many agents at eXp rent their own spaces with a couple friends.




Boston Home For Sale By Owner

September 14th, 2018 by Michael Mahoney

Boston Realtor Michael Mahoney on Why He enjoys Boston Homes Being Sold For Sale By Owner

I love the opportunity that the for sale by owner affords the buyer clients. I am often able to locate and broker deals that significantly allow the buyer to purchase under the market value. Many of the for sale by owners mis-price their homes or don’t market their homes properly. This allows for smart agents to find real deals in the Greater Boston area for our clients.

If you see a FSBO and you have an interest in it, please reach out. I would be happy to assist.


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 @
