South End Boston Real Estate

Dog Days of Summer Boston Real Estate Report

The Boston residential real estate market has slowed a bit as it usually does at this time of year, during what we think of as the dog days of summer.  That having been said, market activity is very good for August in the downtown neighborhoods as well as the inner suburban markets. You can expect the rate of inventory entering the market to be slow until mid September, though.

Here are the full market reports for all Boston neighborhoods and inner suburbs.

For a little fun, here are the priciest listings in the Boston area.

Heres how I can help you maximize your chances of a best-price, best-terms, best timeline real estate sale!
