Super Bowl XLIX may be played in Arizona, but the dual between New England and Seattle is extending far beyond the field and back to their home towns. Boston and Seattle are about as far from each other as you can get in America, but both are among the nation's hottest and most expensive housing markets.

Seattle has soaring views of the Puget Sound. Boston boasts access to both ski mountains and sunny isles. It's impossible to determine which is the best city, but we wanted to see which is the best housing market. Real estate brokerage Redfin culled some of the prettiest property listings in each. Take a look.
