Essex County, Boston’s North Shore, Named One of the Hottest Real Estate Markets for 2013!

Per the Boston Globe, Essex County is named one of the healthiest real estate markets in the United States. Lanse Robb, LandVest’s North Shore Director of residential sales, was again, ranked the #1 broker in Essex County for high-end real estate sales for 2012.

The North Shore of Boston has long been sought after as a place to call home. The excellent school systems, proximity to New England’s best beaches and ease of commute into Boston are just a few reasons for the historic interest.  “Buyers are continuing to move into high quality, well located, real estate as part of their overall investment and educational needs strategy, ” Lanse Robb states.  The high-end/luxury market is also seeing a healthy revival. We are currently seeing limited availability of high-end, waterfront property, meaning that those who see properties they like need to act quickly; it is also an opportune time for sellers to market their properties.

Seastream, a newly listed LandVest listing, is a wonderful opportunity to own a waterfront property on the private Cole’s Island in Gloucester.  Click here for additional LandVest properties on the North Shore.
