Last week Forbes Magazine published its list of the most expensive zip codes to buy a house in the US, and Boston is ranked as the number TWO city in the country. As you can imagine swelling prices just down the pike have a rippling effect out here. Nationally all of the top ten cities are near coasts and are the usual nominees, but isn't it interesting how San Francisco is no longer on the list?

Back home stunning new highs are being fetched across all price ranges. The 5 to 10 person bidding wars are back, that's if a house even makes it on the market long enough to have that many showings. Determined buyers are bidding 10-20% over the listing price immediately to stop anyone else from having a chance at a property. As two buyers said to me this week, 'I now understand that if I want a property, I just have to go for it.' Truer words have not been spoken. An impressive number of houses went under contract in the past few weeks!
