A Tale of Two Cities

Tale of Two Cities and the American Dream

This is a series of posts that will highlight sales of the most expensive and least expensive homes sold in the metropolitan Boston are in the last week. My focus on homes tends to be along the 95 corridor from Dedham to Wrentham.

The goal of the post is really to show the wide range of available real estate options in the area. If you are thinking of making your first purchase, there are plenty of options to have you stop being part of the landlord’s payroll each week.
