The 20 Hottest Towns for Real Estate in Central Massachusetts

Fall is getting into gear, following a hot real estate summer in Central Massachusetts. Statewide, sales of single-family homes increased significantly in July 2013, rising more than 18 percent over July 2012, and posting the highest sales volume for any month since June 2006, according The Warren Group, publisher of Banker & Tradesman. Nearly 6,000 single-family homes sold in July, up from 5,014 during the same month last year. It was, according to The Warren Group, the best month for sales volume since June 2006, when there were 6,152 sales.
