    Here's Why We Love Back Bay Real Estate

    It’s chic, it’s vibrant and it’s charming, but those aren’t the only reasons Back Bay is one of our top picks for those looking at real estate in Boston.  Though it’s one of the pricier neighborhoods in the city, condos for sale in Back Bay are in high demand and don’t stay on the market for long.  Here’s why:

    Back Bay Real Estate is Timeless

    If you’re worried about your real estate investment going south with another bubble burst, you can feel secure that purchasing real estate in Back Bay is likely safer financially than most other neighborhoods in the city.  As Boston’s top shopping and dining destination - with designer boutiques, art galleries and patio cafes - Back Bay is an affluent neighborhood with elegant brick townhouses, and they will be in high demand as long as there are people in the city that can afford them.  In 2008’s real estate bubble burst, Back Bay fared better than other trendy neighborhoods that lacked the history, charisma and depth of this coveted area.  

    It’s Vibrant Energy

    Back Bay is made up of residents and visitors who thrive on the effervescent energy of the neighborhood.  At any time of day you’ll find people strolling the streets - out to visit the unique shops that fill the Prudential Center and Copley Place and line Newbury and Boylston streets, or on their way to meet friends at the one of the many alluring cafes and bars that make Back Bay a sophisticated social destination for Bostonians.  When you buy a condo in Back Bay you get both historic architecture and genteel elegance, as well as immediate access to culture, activity and luxury at every turn.

    Something for Everyone

    Young professionals, tourists, children, historians, students, baseball fans - Back Bay is walkable to pretty much anything you might want to do in Boston.  It’s a remarkable area in it’s own right, but Back Bay is also bordered on all sides by 3 of Boston’s most desirable and entertaining neighborhoods - The South End, Fenway / Kenmore, and Beacon Hill.  This means that you can easily have breakfast and stroll through the Public Gardens, spend the afternoon at Fenway Park watching the Sox and then have a sumptuous dinner at one of the chic restaurants in Beacon Hill or The South End - talk about having it all!  Condos in Back Bay are more appealing to families than many other neighborhoods in the city because there are an abundance of high quality education and childcare options, as well as parks, museums and other kid-friendly activities.  Most condos in Back Bay are in close proximity to beautiful parks and green spaces like the Boston Common and the Esplanade, making it an ideal location for exercise enthusiasts.  

    Most condos for sale in Back Bay are more expensive than similar condos for sale in The Seaport, The South End, South Boston, East Boston, or really any neighborhood other than Beacon Hill.  But, if you’re buying a home in Boston and you want convenience, elegance, quality, entertainment and resiliency, Back Bay real estate is where you should look first.  Here’s a look at all of the available condos for sale in Back Bay right now.
