Depending on your definition of affordable, Somerville is positioning itself to be the more attractive alternative to both Boston and Cambridge. In fact, these homes under $600K offer the space and amenities you wouldn't get in the aforementioned cities in that price range. With Mayor Curtatone at the helm of "the best-run city in Massachusetts", it's hard not to see why people (mainly 29-year-olds) want to live there. Rest assured, Somerville's cheapest condo will also be on show this weekend if you need an up close and personal view of the racing stripes.
