Single-Family Home Prices in Greater Boston

Want to know what your house is worth? Use this chart to find out.

For some, a great place to live is based on prestigious schools or hip location. Others want a strong community or green space for the kids. But price is always a factor, and as part of our Best Places to Live 2012 coverage, we have compiled this sortable real estate chart featuring cities and towns in greater Boston. Sort by neighborhood, year, home price, or days on the market to find how your house ranks against the rest.

(The Best Places to Live package in the March issue included a chart that featured inaccurate "percent change" numbers supplied by the Warren Group. We regret the error. The correct data is updated below.)
