Romantic homes in the Boston suburbs

Posted by Leslie Mann on Tue, Feb 12, 2013 @ 07:10 PM

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!

Mapping Home Values in Boston's MetroWest Suburbs

Posted by Leslie Mann on Mon, Oct 17, 2011 @ 05:47 PM

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.

Wellesley Homes for Sale: Real Estate within Reach?

Posted by Leslie Mann on Fri, Sep 24, 2010 @ 08:14 PM

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.
