The community of Medford, Massachusetts straddles the Mystic River, with residential neighborhoods stretching north and south from its banks. Residents throughout the city are quite diverse, ranging from students attending Tufts University to working professionals and their family, commuting daily to the downtown core of Boston.
Among Medford’s main draws is how relatively affordable it's been able to stay, compared to some of Boston’s more affluent suburbs. This has also made it incredibly sought after as a place to live. Medford has seen steadily increasing property values in the past few decades. Potential home buyers will love the extra bit of space they can afford for the same price in similar suburbs, or within the city of Boston itself.
The city is well established and the Medford real estate market is predominantly populated by classic, single-family homes as well as renovated two-storey condo conversions. There are some newer builds to be found but for the most part you’ll find stylish characters homes in the Tudor and Federalist styles, similar to much of Greater Boston.
The upside is that many of these older homes and condo conversion properties have been lovingly updated and renovated. The exterior displays a classic style of a bygone era, but many of the interiors have tastefully introduced more contemporary layouts and design finishes.
