Is the housing market back on track? More deals closed this September than in any September since 2005, according to real estate tracking firm The Warren Group. Foreclosures are down all over, and prices are up almost everywhere, too. Eric Berman of the Massachusetts Association of Realtors ex- plains why: “Inventory is low, interest rates are low, and the economy’s better, so we have qualified buyers. We’re moving in the right direction.” Looking at the percent increase in median sale prices between the first nine months of 2012 and 2013, you can see which neighborhoods are really heating up.
