Earthquake Shakes up Southeastern Massachusetts

bold moves real estate buildingA 2.4 magnitude earthquake shook Southeastern Massachusetts on Tuesday evening around 6 pm. The epicenter was located near Bliss Corner in Dartmouth. The tremors were felt in New Bedford, Fairhaven, Acushnet, Rochester, and Mattapoisett. Many reported feeling a loud boom as if their furnace had exploded. Most people wondered what it was. Many felt it could have been an accident outside.

There were no reports of any injuries or damage. Since the earthquake was relatively shallow it was felt over a larger area. Geophysicists say earthquakes happen more than we think, we just don't feel them. The last earthquake to occur in Southeastern Massachusetts was in January.

There have been rumblings in the real estate market as well. House prices have remained stable and the interest rate has crept up slightly but remained steady. It is still a great time to buy or sell a house. There are still plenty of houses available and now is the time to take advantage of that while prices remain stable and USDA loans are still available for many of the neighboring towns.
