Cambridge has some of the pricier listings in the area, with some homes selling for around $4M and up. While that might be the high end of the range, there are still many (relatively) moderately priced homes that won’t break the bank. This week’s open house tour samples the many different flavors of Cambridge, from Victorians to townhouses to modern condos, that fall below that upper-upper-end. You might be pleasantly surprised.
