Centers And Squares
Welcome to Centers and Squares
As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.
Boston magazine’s real estate issue is always a sure sign that the spring market is here. Real estate didn’t make Boston‘s cover this year but there’s plenty inside the March 2014 issue.
This year’s coverage includes an article “You Belong Here” that identifies top communities for various demographic groups. Here are 2014’s winners according to Boston magazine:
- Starting Out – Medford
- Power Couple – Lincoln
- Moving Up – Natick
- Growing Family – Winchester
- Empty Nester – Newburyport
A couple of runner-ups are given in each category, and another town in the heart of Centers and Squares territory, Watertown, made the cut for “starting out”.
I don’t think you need to be an empty nester to consider Newburyport. With its gorgeous housing stock, rich history and fabulous downtown it’s one of my favorite Massachusetts towns. I recently sold the Newburyport house pictured above. Built in 1720, remarkably intact and beautifully restored, it was the most fascinating house I’ve sold.
Be sure to pick up a copy of Boston magazine’s real estate issue. It’s got tips for homebuyers, a fun piece titled “Embracing Plan B” with more affordable suggestions when your homebuying budget won’t suffice in the town you’re dreaming about, and a chart showing the one, five and ten-year change in home values for ~150 Massachusetts towns.
