The South End’s only village real estate report

FALL 2010

Sales slump as prices fall from height This quarter the South End saw the fewest sales of any 3rd quarter in the last 7 years. Prices, too, dipped below last year’s Q3 record high. At In Realty, we’ve built our success by offering more services, embracing new technology and providing market-leading knowledge and insight. In a market crowded with nationally branded sales mills, our local, boutique approach to customer service is as unique as the South End itself. More For Sellers

Why? A drop in new listings – 28 fewer units were listed this quarter – meant buyers had less to buy. Even though less supply meant more demand, fewer sales in the high end pushed the average price down.

One neighborhood, fourteen villages. “The Golden Triangle” Fronting the Back Bay, this area features some of the highest values in the South End. In addition to brownstones, the housing stock includes some of the South End’s most luxurious new developments.

“Columbus North” The streets and housing stock in this village closely mimic those in the Back Bay, with several single family homes nestled among converted condominium brownstones.

“South End Central” The name says it all. This is the heart of the South End, with brick-lined streets and a large collection of quintessential Victorian South End brownstones.

This village features direct access to the bustle of Tremont Street’s Restaurant Row, but on quiet, brick-lined streets. Boston Magazine named Waltham Street one of the best streets to live in the state.

“South End South” Similar to South End Central, this is a stable area with potential for long-term growth. The housing stock here provides greater value to buyers and more investment opportunities.

Quarterly snapshot:

“Eight Streets” Quarterly snapshot:

“Columbus South” This village is similar to the look and feel of the neighboring streets to the north, yet offers buyers better value for their money.

One of Boston’s greatest urban success stories, the lively and eclectic SoWa loft district arose from a sea of under-utilized and vacant warehouse buildings.

The South End isn’t one homogeneous neighborhood – it’s a collection of distinct and unique urban villages. That’s why our proprietary Intra-market Reporting is different than typical real estate reports.

“The Bookend” This village stretches along the southwestern edge of Massachusetts Avenue. Handsome brownstones and larger, Victorian-era apartment houses offer investors and buyers some of the best values in the South End.

We look inside each market to uncover the nano-trends that escape broader analysis. Our agents study buyer patterns within the South End and cross-check these trends with quarterly sales data.
