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 North End (condos only—not enough data for single-family, too, given the neighborhood's housing stock).
We told you back in July that the hottest real estate item in Boston was a North End one-bedroom. Condos in the neighborhood in general remained covetously popular through August, apparently. Sales were up annually that month 14.9 percent, while the average time it took to sell a North End condo plunged more than 40 percent to 88 days, or not even three months. In Boston overall during the same period, the average was down as well, though only by 12 percent. Meanwhile prices were either flat or slightly up year over year and the inventory of unsold condos on the market, like everywhere else in the Hub, was down significantly).
