In 2020, we saw a great amount of people put their home buying dreams on hold to wait out the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, as of May 2021, reports show a spike in home buying, especially in the metropolitan areas— perhaps as buyers take advantage of the low mortgage rates. We are also seeing a great amount of people relocating from out of the city, resulting in many of the coveted luxurious properties finally becoming available.   

As potential homebuyers take advantage of low mortgage and interest rates, now is a great time to look into those luxury neighborhoods in Massachusetts for homes for sale. 

Top 3 Luxury Places to Live in the Greater Boston Area

Back Bay 

Nestled right on the outskirts of Boston Commons, the highly esteemed Back Bay neighborhood is one of the most expensive in the Greater Boston area. Home to America’s largest and most well-preserved collection of Victoria row-style homes, real estate prices don’t get much higher but, in exchange for the higher price tag, you receive ultimate luxury. Along with top-notch living spaces, residents enjoy a prime location with high end fashion boutiques and malls at Newbury Street, Copley Plaza, and The Prudential Center nearby. You can also expect an array of five-star restaurants as the neighborhood hosts the Taste of Back Bay each year where 30 prominent restaurants showcase their top dishes. 

Beacon Hill 

Just Northeast of Back Bay is Beacon Hill, arguably one of the most scenic and photogenic neighborhoods in Boston, with historic homes dating back to colonial times. Here you’ll find more classy boutique shops and high-end dining as well as fascinating antique stores. A short distance from Boston Commons and the Charles River, residents need not travel far to enjoy entertainment outdoors.

Seaport District

The Seaport District ranks just second on the list of most expensive neighborhoods in the Greater Boston area (Beacon Hill is No. 1). Built on reclaimed land, the Seaport District is also one of the newest neighborhoods, with the redevelopment of the area known as the largest single real estate project in Boston’s history. Multimillion-dollar luxury condo towers and offices with skyline and harbor views line the neighborhood. The Institute of Contemporary Art is the heart of the neighborhood, being the first arts museum to be built in Boston in a century. Enjoy luxury living at its finest with high-end fitness studios, dining and shopping.
