BACK BAY CONDO MARKET
Considered one of the country's most sought after neighborhoods in which to live, Back Bay is an officially recognized neighborhood of Boston. This neighborhood (along with one other) is considered an 'upscale' area of Boston, positioned along the Charles River. Though it may be known as one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the Boston area, Back Bay definitely offers plenty of compensation for the prices that people pay to reside in such a beautiful place.
Real estate in Back Bay:
While the median listing price for all homes is $1,745,000 – the median sales price for all homes and condominiums in Back Bay is approximately $795,375.
The Back Bay area was given the name due to the fact that, up until the mid-1800s, the area where Back Bay is located was actually a bay. The area was covered in marshes until the neighborhood was built along the side of Boston, adding more than 450 acres to the city. Though it may get its name from its seemingly unappealing past, the area is now one of the most beautiful and highly visited areas in Boston.
Not to be outdone by the numerous universities in the surrounding areas, Back Bay houses its own colleges and museums. The Berklee College of Music, the Boston Architectural College, and the New England College of Optometry are among the schools located in the neighborhood. In addition to the colleges located in Back Bay, the area is also home to the Boston Conservatory, the New England Historic Genealogical Society, and the Goethe Institute. These cultural institutions are extreme attractions – bringing even more people to the area.
Applauded for its gorgeous Victorian houses, historic brick sidewalks, and magnificent additions to the Boston skyline, it's not hard to see why Back Bay is so popular. The neighborhood includes the two tallest structures found in the skyline of Boston – the Prudential Center and the John Hancock Tower – both of which can be seen from miles away. Located in Back Bay also, is the Boston Public Library, as well as the finish line for the world-famous Boston Marathon. Finally, perhaps one of the biggest attractions to the area is the shopping. Several high-end stores line the streets of the neighborhood, and it is said that seeing a celebrity enjoying a day of shopping is not uncommon.
With all of the beauty, history, and fashion in the area – there's plenty of things that make Back Bay a desirable neighborhood in which to search for real estate. The area doesn't lack in available property, either. Real estate listings are full of properties to choose from when searching for that perfect place. And though the prices of housing in Back Bay may be slightly higher than the national average, those who live in the neighborhood might argue that a great home in a good neighborhood is worth the small difference in the amount paid for the property.
