• 50 most expensive communities in Massachusetts

    Updated:
    Realtors John McGeough and Anthony Lamacchia revealed the 50 most expensive communities in Massachusetts Monday.

    The realtors said there was a 6-percent increase for the average selling price of a home in June 2014. The average price of $387,818 is the highest monthly average this year.

    Homes sold in several Massachusetts towns for well above the state average, which put them on the list of the state's most expensive. McGeough and Lamacchia compiled the list by looking at the most expensive communities based on total average home selling prices for the first six months of 2014.
