This is Neighborhood Watch, a monthly breakdown from Curbed Boston about what's going on market-wise in key neighborhoods 'round the region (and, for our purposes here, towns and cities are neighborhoods, too—because they almost were, after all). All stats courtesy of William Raveis Real Estate. Next up, the Fenway's condo market ('cause there's not enough single-family sales for meaningful stats).
The most startling takeaway from the Fenway condo market is that the average listing price was up more than 10 percent annually in September. In other words, sellers were asking a lot more for their condos vs. September 2011—and apparently getting it. Sale prices were up by double-digit percentages as sales also rose modestly and inventory plunged. Insert perfect storm reference here.
