Boston luxury sales show no signs of slow down.

According to information from companies, in terms of Sales Volume, 2018 was the Boston Market’s strongest year ever in the luxury end of the market, with 1341 single families and condos priced over $1M trading for a total of nearly $2.7B in sales volume.

  • If not, how high can prices go from here?
  • Which neighborhoods have the most potential for luxury growth?

The most expensive properties sold in Boston since 2014.
