The Brookline MA housing market is not typical or representative of most real estate markets.
Brookline MA has mostly condos, and the single family homes are expensive. As one of the most desirable places to live around Boston, Brookline is home to great mansions and small Capes - all in high demand.
What is particularly interesting about the analysis here is the difference in the homes available in various price ranges. This unique real estate market is ruled by the scarcity of land and high quality schools.
With less than 20 houses on market, Brookline MA is not a study of statistical significance, but an enclave of affluence of varying degrees.
