Housing Data Dashboard
The Greater Boston Association of REALTORS® (GBAR) housing market data dashboard is an interactive platform which provides 24/7 customizable search and reporting capabilities for active inventory and sold properties in the detached single-family home, condominium, and multi-family housing markets.

Specifically, it allows you to track variations in sales, selling price, inventory levels, market time and more on a monthly, quarterly, and yearly basis, and filter the data and trend lines by geographic area (region, town, neighborhood), property type, price range, lot size, living area, and number of bedrooms. There is also a dashboard for market pricing analysis, and a separate dashboard for a one-page town summary
