One of the most surprising statistics I found for 2015 North Shore home sales was in Kenilworth.  Notice in the graph below the difference between the average sale price of 2014 vs. 2015.  That's a prodigious increase of 26%!  There were fewer sales which meant less inventory and the resulting in...

The first six months of 2014 clearly show that there was a lack of inventory in Kenilworth.  I know that in May many new homes were listed that helped to alleviate that problem, but the comparison of 2013 to 2014 confirms a dearth of homes for sale.   Mid Year Kenilworth Real Estate Market Report...
