I'm a big fan of old-fashioned Valentine's Day cards, even the little ones with silly saying that I remember from my elementary school days. It would be fun to spend a few aimless hours perusing these cards, but this is after all a real estate blog...sooo... as we look toward the day of hearts and cupids, I think it'd be fun to tour some uber-glam and very romantic luxury homes for sale in the Boston suburbs. Ready? Me too!

I'm pleased to share this infographic we created to highlight home values across Boston's MetroWest suburbs. Mapping home values makes it fairly easy to see the big difference in prices as you head further away (or closer in) to Boston. Whether you're looking to live in Wellesley & have a lightning fast commute to Boston or get more house for your money a bit further away in Hopkinton, hopefully this chart will be a helpful rule of thumb.
It's almost summer and that means many glorious waterfront homes are hitting the market in the Boston suburbs. Check out our gallery of luxury waterfront estates for sale in the Boston suburbs.
We may not be able to live in Buckingham Palace, but here are some breathtaking "castles" right here at home.

Is it possible to find a home for sale in Wellesley that's not a sky high price? Last week a real estate firm released a report claiming Wellesley was the 7th most expensive housing market in the country (although this was disputed by some who took a closer look at the statistics). Certainly Wellesley is home to many out-of-sight priced homes, including a sprawling estate home for sale in Wellesley's Dana Hall neighborhood in excess of $10M. Homes that most of us could never afford. And right now there are 120 homes for sale in Wellesley in excess of the million dollar mark.
