Second Quarter Reflection…
Not surprisingly, Boston’s Downtown neighborhoods remained on an upward trend. The Citywide 5 Year Price Index continues to show significant appreciation. In looking at individual neighborhoods, the Seaport is noteworthy with the highest average sale price at a record $2,000,041. This is a reflection of the high-end Twenty Two Liberty development on Fan Pier, as well as the additional loft-style conversions in Fort Point. South End had the highest number of sales, at a staggering 215, with South Boston coming in close, with 205 properties sold.
 
It’s been a very robust market over the last few years, including this past quarter. Interest rates remain historically low and buyers are motivated. Back Bay is showing an increased average sale price of 13.6% over 2nd quarter last year. As part of my full-service approach to listing property, I am working with my sellers to create an action plan and timeline outlining their goals and desired results.
  
As the fall approaches, available inventory typically increases. If you are interested in taking advantage of low interest rates to maximize your purchasing power, begin preparing for the house hunt now. This includes identifying the professionals on your team such as a strong, experienced Buyer’s Agent and Mortgage Lender. Together, we’ll make the transaction smooth and stress-free.
 

 
From a Recent Client…
 

“My husband and I have worked with Amy several times and we cannot say enough good things about her. She is a consummate professional, skilled negotiator and knows the Boston real estate market inside and out. Amy worked tirelessly on our behalf, was available day and night, was patient and an incredible resource. She found our home for us off-market. Amy was a true professional, made the process virtually seamless, and is just a truly lovely person. We were delighted to work with Amy again and can recommend her without reservation and with the utmost of satisfaction.”
