Boston Magazine Ranks Salem Among Best Places to Buy First Home
Salem's low housing prices and charming harbor are among the reasons Boston Magazine named the city one of the best places to live in 2013.
A recent Boston Magazine article about house hunting in the Boston area ranked Salem among the best places to buy a home in 2013.
The article notes that Salem's median home price is $249,900, with a one-year change of -3.4%; and points to planned increases in ferry service and our new five-story downtown parking garage as reasons why Salem would be a good fit for someone working in the big city.
Other communities making the magazine's list were Medford, Boxford, Western Southie and Dorchester.
