Wakefield Massachusetts Real Estate
While many people today seem to complain about a disconnect between themselves and their neighbors, there is a thriving town called Wakefield that still feels like a small town while keeping all the conveniences of modern life. Perhaps it’s because of the way in which the town was founded. The first families settled in the area in 1638 and by 1644, it was a strong community of just seven families. The town could not have survived without the strong spirit of endurance and civic duty that still permeates the area.
Citizens are encouraged to participate and improve Wakefield whenever possible. This is one of the reasons the educational system is consistently rated at the highest level. Parents are proud to send their children to any of the area’s high schools, and even have the option of choosing a vocational school. Additionally, the strength and pride of the community is undoubtedly a factor in making the crime rate of the area less than half the average for Massachusetts.
If you can ever tear yourself away from the beauty of Wakefield, you’ll love how easy it is to travel down to Boston. There are several highways that will get you directly where you want to go, or you can hop on the commuter rail and be in downtown Boston without any effort at all.
The homes themselves have enough variety to appeal to any resident. The majority of them are single family homes, though there are plenty of Wakefield apartments and condos as well. You’ll find some historic buildings mixed in with those that are brand new. Additional, Wakefield, MA real estate values have been on the rise consistently over the past few years, making this area a great place to invest in real estate.
