According to Boston.com’s Boston Real Estate Now blog, the best up-and-coming areas to live in the Greater Boston Area are Somerville, Medford, and Waltham. The blog cites information from Redfin, which listed the three areas as the top emerging neighborhoods for the Greater Boston Area.
The article states that the emergence of these three areas can be traced to Cambridge’s expanding growth, although home prices in Somerville, Medford and Waltham are all significantly lower than home prices in Cambridge.
For renters and buyers looking for somewhere to live near Boston or Cambridge without the expense of living in the city, Somerville, Medford and Waltham provide great options. Yes, demand for houses and apartments can be high in the area, but with the right dedication and assistance from qualified real estate agents, they should be able to find great apartments and houses with easy access to the city.
