In 2013, Sharon MA was named the Best Place to Live in America by Money Magazine. This is not a surprise for anyone who has ever lived, worked or visited here. The Sharon Public Schools system consistently ranks among the top 10 in the state. The July 2014 Sharon MA home sales figures seem to reflect the growing popularity of this little suburb located just southwest of Boston.

The average sale price for a Sharon MA home in July 2014 was $511,159, a 7.1% increase from the same time last year. More than half of these homes sold at or above the listing price (a total of 19), with the same amount selling within 30 days or less of being listed on the market.
