With 100+ towns and cities comprising Metro Boston, it’s hard to know where to start your home search–especially if you’re relocating from Out-of-State. To give another frame of reference, we’re Spotlighting some of these great local areas…
Next up, Needham, MA, which is located about 20 miles West of Boston on the I-95/ 128 Loop.
Classified as a Dense Suburban Area, pulling into Needham’s Town Square (at the intersections of Great Plain Ave, Highland Ave & Chapel Street) feels like you’re arriving in Quintessential Small-Town New England. The grand brick Town Hall building, with its bell tower and small Gold Dome on top completes the Historic Town Common.
Needham boasts a high percentage of homeowners and the neighborhoods lined with Single-Family homes and white picket fences help to maintain that small town feel.
Not ready to buy? There are many options for renters, too: apartment complexes like Modera & Charles River Landing offer remarkable amenities at a more reasonable cost than Boston, with locations convenient to the MBTA Commuter Rail (there are 4 station stops in Needham!).
Needham’s tight-knit community, green spaces (including a golf course) and tantalizing variety of local restaurants and shops makes it a top pick for families relocating to Metro Boston.
