Weekend open house tour: Diving under $700,000 in Watertown

These homes are on view and up for grabs this weekend

View as Map

Just west of Boston and Cambridge, there's Watertown. The city of around 31,000 souls offers a range of housing types and architectural styles. Don't believe us? Sample some open houses there this week, including one for a total redo of a classic cape and one for a charming Victorian.

All of them are conveniently available for under $700,000. That sum would represent a relative steal in Watertown's neighbors to the east, especially when you consider the space.
