Home sales rise in Mass. as prices continue to fall

BOSTON, Ma. — Home sales rose for a third consecutive month in Massachusetts in September, but prices continued to decline.

The Massachusetts Association of Realtors say sales rose more than 4% compared with the same month last year, largely due to a federal tax credit for first-time buyers.

The average price for homes in the state is between $260,000 and $285,000.
