I don't own a house, so every once in while I'll spend hours checking out houses that are for sale in MA. Boston Magazine compiled its own list for where to live north, south, and west of Boston, as well as in the city itself. The magazine is trying to help people get out ahead of the "impossibly red-hot real estate market."
Natick, Ashland, Chelsea, Boxford, Melrose, Quincy and Sudbury are just some of the towns that made the list! Checkout the full list here here.
