There is however a good supply of homes in all price ranges, and the market prices have remained steady sellers are receiving ninety-five to one-hundred percent of the initial asking price with multiple offers. The greatest activity in this area of Massachusetts real estate is repeat buyers.

In addition, this area happens to be a popular spot for anything dealing with the arts and restaurant industry. The market is currently being driven by job growth, which makes this a definite consideration when looking at potential investment opportunities.

Unfortunately, Massachusetts seems to be one of the more expensive states to live in right now. So while it is following the more environmentally friendly building and a home maintenance and renovation codes.
