WINTHROP—Listings and sales in the town were up in 2013, though prices down: "After studying the data closer, I noticed that the majority of sales under the median price of $219,000 were located at Governors Park, fixer uppers off Winthrop beach and a few short sales thrown into the mix."

Boston achieved 20% the record number of sales (2004) but the aggregate sales revenue was 11% higher than it was in 2004." [RESIS]
