Newton, one of the state’s few suburban locations with the ability to sell million-dollar homes in both the single family and condominium markets, used this uncommon attribute to surpass Wellesley as the Massachusetts community with the most million-dollar sales between 2004 and 2009. Wellesley actually had more single-family million-dollar sales than Newton (959 to 933), but Newton buyers closed on an additional 96 million-dollar condos to Wellesley’s four in that same time period.

Also during that time, Brookline sold 519 million-dollar single-families and 147 condos, making it the third most popular Massachusetts community for million-dollar sales.

Weston had the fourth-highest total for single-family million-dollar sales at 490, while Lexington was fifth with 481 single-family sales.
