The housing market has been wild for the past three years and Massachusetts has been no exception.
Berkshire County, Massachusetts is home to some pretty incredible real estate. From stunning mountain getaways to historical homes brought into the modern era, there truly is something for everyone in the bucolic Berkshire hills.
The Berkshires aren't the only hot real estate market in Massachusetts. In fact, four cities and towns in Massachusetts made a recently compiled list of areas throughout the United States where homes are selling the fastest. The speed at which a home is sold is a great indicator of a hot seller's market.
Recent data was taken from Redfin and analyzed by Stacker to compile a list of areas where homes are selling the fastest in the United States. Areas were ranked by shortest duration homes stayed on the market in the month of November and any ties were broken by the highest number of total homes sold in that time period.
