Presenting 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 Hub's No. 1 neighborhood. Last up, Cambridge.
Single-family sales were down in the South End by more than 18 percent annually (though that sounds worse than it is: the difference was only six sales). The average sales price was down slightly to a still formidable $1,787, 306; and the median, too, was down slightly to $1,750,000.
Condo sales jumped annually 21.8 percent as inventory, not surprisingly, dropped by a similar percentage. The average and median sales prices were up slightly, too, to $686,344 and $575,000, respectively.
