While homes asking more than $1 million are especially common in Cambridge, there’s a good reason why it always seems in demand: location.

Right across the Charles River from Boston, Cambridge also boasts its own bustling commercial ecosystem, including technology-heavy Kendall Square and universities such as M.I.T. and Harvard.
