The luxury sector represents the top 10% of homes by price in the South Shore Massachusetts real estate market: homes with a sales price of $1.25 million or more.

The luxury homes sector is up 26% year-over-year, based on the number of sales.
While the low number of sales is typical of this time of year, the anomalous characteristics of any single sale can have an exaggerated effect on the averages, rendering the monthly comparison with the longer term less useful.

Sold! Expansive, bright home on 1.6 acres in Duxbury, Massachusetts

 
I represented the buyers in their recent acquisition of their dream home in Duxbury, Massachusetts. Set back on a long gravel driveway amid trees and well-tended, mature and professional landscaping, this home is a magnificent example of what sensible updating and an eye for creating open and flowing spaces can do for what was once a smaller and older home. 
A former garden center, the great room now sits where there was once a barn. Between the great room and the 3-car garage is an open room with high … (6 comments)
