Cambridge Massachusetts Real Estate
In the past, Cambridge was a thriving center of Puritan ideals. It was built just north of Boston as a easily defensible stronghold of the area. The original village center is now the heart of Harvard’s Town Square. In addition to housing the nation’s first University, Harvard, it is also home to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The collective intelligence of the area is almost palpable.
Known as the Town of Squares, the community has a range of vibrant personalities. Kendall Square, for example, is a technological hub. It abuts MIT campus and is a mecca for biotech advances. Central Square is better known for its incredible ethnic cuisine, and since its revitalization in the 1990’s, Cambridge homes in this area have been increasingly sought after. Harvard Square is not only the primary site of Harvard University, it is also a major shopping area. The Cambridge apartments available there are the height of convenience and are set in the midst of a strong historical area.
Now may be the ideal time to dive into Cambridge real estate. The average price of homes is taking its seasonal dip, meaning you can have all the luxury of the area at a lower cost. Compared to last year, however, the market is rebounding and home sales and prices are up. The stabilizing housing market is reflected in the area’s better economic position.
With a lower unemployment rate than either the City of Boston or Massachusetts in general, it’s no wonder that Cambridge properties are in high demand. Couple that with a school district that has transformed from fairly weak to bragging of a high graduation and college acceptance rate, and you have a place that’s perfect to buy a home.
Whether you’re interested in Cambridge MA homes for sale or just stopping by a trip, take advantage of all the community events that the area offers. Each summer, the Cambridge Arts Council creates a spectacle of dances, music, storytelling and much more that’s perfect for everyone in the family. You can also take the kids to splash and play through Cambridge’s many fountains and sprinkler systems that are open to the public. There’s much more going on each weekend, so you’ll never run short of ways to spend your time.
