The real estate market for each town varies significantly based on population, property values and demographics.   Most of the  activity continues to fall into the under $800,000 price point as it has been for most of the year.

As always, the most important factors when selling a home are price, presentation and promotion.  All must be optimal to sell fast and for the highest price.   When you are looking to buy a property, knowledge of the area, schools, amenities, and values are all important to make a good investment and lifestyle decision.
