One way or round trip? Is the T an option for work? Bro commutes via T from Sharon to Cambridge and it takes less than an hour....one way of course. Killer schools. Weston, Newton, Medfield, Dover, and of course Brookline, to mention just a few... there is an embarrassment of riches when it comes to good school districts in the 128 corridor.

One way, but it's the absolute max we would tolerate and would prefer less. We'd also prefer if we both didn't have hour long commutes.

We'd love to be on the T, it's one of the reasons we may stretch for Concord. Newton's on our list, very little is available there for under 600k. Weston and Brookline are out of our reach, as there is literally nothing in our price range. The other towns to the south would be bad for commuting to Waltham as I would be stuck fighting 128 traffic the whole way (been there, done that, don't wanna again).

The well perceived towns around Boston are kind of crazy right now, with very low inventory and bidding wars on anything decent that hits the market. When we sold the condo (sadly not in a well perceived town) we got 5 bids over asking with 2 all cash offers and ended up settling for just 7% off the 2005 price. Good for us as sellers, but daunting as buyers now...
