Maynard Houses, Middleboro Condos Sell Above List Price

Looking at sold homes in the Boston area over the last two months, Maynard houses and Middleboro Condos were selling at above list price. While there are no huge discounts to be had, but homes in Natick were selling at 96% of list price, and Cambridge condos were selling at 97.9% of list, so buyers are getting a little discount. Except in Maynard and Middleboro, apparently. Full data is below.

Sisson’s diner in Middleboro: is this where all the fancy new condo buyers are eating?

Last night we were dishing pricing data again at Redfin’s office in Somerville, which I hear is not that bad. (Somerville, not the office). Get the slides.

Next time, it’ll be downtown Boston. We’ll do it on October 15th and you’ll be able to RSVP here. And by the way, congratulations to Redfin agent Sean Valiton, who just had a baby on Sept. 4th.

    Why are Ludlow and Amherst included in a comparison of Boston area real estate? I would think that Worcester and Lowell are encompassing the limits of a “reasonable” commute.

    Good point Ian. The data is drawn from the local MLS, which touches some of those outlying areas. This isn’t a comprehensive list of neighborhoods, but a survey of many in the Boston area.
