This spring has seen a flood of homes hitting the market in Greater Boston.
Like the recent rains, it is a badly needed inundation for a parched real estate landscape dominated by overpriced homes in need of work. It's still tough out there, but at least there are more homes to check out.
So where to look?
Suffolk County, which is mainly Boston and a couple inner suburbs/cities, saw the biggest inventory bump, rising 35.6 percent, Redfin notes.
Middlesex County, which includes the western suburbs, came in a close second, with a 32.6 percent rise in listings in March.
Here are some of the towns and cities that have seen the most homes hit the market so far this spring.
I am going to lift here from the note sent to me by my friendly Redfin contact, Alex.
o Reading: 78.1% increase
o Arlington: 76.0%
o Belmont: 74.7%
o Cambridge: 66.5%
o Lexington: 56.1%
o Jamaica Central: 73.8%
o Cleveland Circle: 73.1%
o Oak Square: 63.2%

Happy house hunting!
