Medford Highlighted in Boston magazine's "Real Estate Guide 2014"

Medford was included in Boston magazine’s March issue as part of the publication’s “Real Estate Guide 2014”. Each year, the magazine publishes its list of top spots for home buyers of all ages & budgets to consider and this year, Medford was included in the list of recommended places for those “Starting Out” as first-time home buyers. Below, is the description of Medford that was featured in the issue. 

MEDFORD
Median home price: $395,000
One-year change: +11%

If you didn’t have the foresight or the cash to buy in ultra-hot Arlington 10 years ago, console yourself with the possibility of neighboring Medford—especially West Medford, which has its own commuter-rail station and is just a short drive over the river to Arlington’s cultural charms. Townwide, the median price for a single-family home remains a reasonable $395,000—a steal compared with Arlington’s $550,000. Find larger, rambling homes on the Winchester side of town; smaller single families and condos, in the hills close to I-93. Other fringe benefits include proximity to the Middlesex Fells Reservation, the urban appeal of independent businesses in Medford and West Medford centers, and Orange Line access to Boston. As these home values steadily increase, it’s a savvy—and centrally located—investment.
