Westwood Massachusetts Real Estate
Westwood, MA real estate offers some of the most spectacular opportunities for home owners today. Its two commuter trains will zip residents over the 12 miles to Boston, letting them visit the city whenever they want. The truth is, with all Westwood has to offer, residents may be reluctant to leave. It is both regionally and nationally recognized as a fantastic place to live and visit.
Regionally, Boston Magazine listed one of the prominent streets of Westwood, Gay Street, as one of the best streets in the Boston area. As if that weren’t enough, in July 2005, CNN/Money and Money Magazine ranked Westwood 13th on its list of “100 Best Places to Live” in the United States. Its beauty and history consistently draw many of the most successful Bostonians, making Westwood the 20th wealthiest town in Massachusetts.
The pride and joy of the town is not its financial success, but rather its educational prowess. The standardized testing of the public schools consistently places the students and teachers in the top percentiles of the nation. An even more stunning demonstration of the school success is the fact that the overwhelming majority of students go on to college-level education.
A large part of the stellar educational system is likely due to the rule of government. Because it still operates under a home rule charter, the town is given a significant degree of autonomy in its internal affairs. For those who favor participation in their local government, the town holds annual open town meetings, allowing all residents to contribute.
Westwood homes seem to be designed for families. A full three-quarters of the households a filled with families, though there are still rooms for those just starting out in Westwood apartments and other Westwood properties. Combine the large number of children with the exceptional educational system, and you’ll find the perfect place to raise children.
The recovering housing economy has worked wonders on the Westwood real estate values. Since 2012, the average home values are up more than 11%. This increase has been fairly steady over the past year, indicating that this increase in value is likely to continue in the future. Now is the perfect time to join this amazing community.
