Why pay $3,000,000 or $4,000,000 for a town-home in Boston, when you can get twice the square footage for half the price in some fascinating communities North of Boston?
“In a time where telecommuting and flexible hours are more prominent, many buyers are opting to have more space over a shorter commute” says Alissa Christie, broker/owner of Bentley’s Real Estate in Newburyport and www.luxuryhomesnorthofboston.com. “Currently a $3,000,000 - $4,000,000 price point in Boston will get you a town-home with an average of just over 2000 square feet”.
Less than an hour North of Boston, you will find some amazing communities ranging in ambiance from small, historic cities to bedroom communities, to beach towns where cool ocean breezes float in from the Atlantic Ocean. “Many fabulous homes are offered in the $1,000,000 to $1,500,000 range and give buyers the opportunity for a more relaxed, laid-back lifestyle. These homes all have well over 3,000 square feet.”
According to the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing luxury amenities are “trending towards ‘wellness’ and that the ultra-wealthy are moving away from business as being their first priority to finding a place of ‘balance”.
