Including in Davis Square, East Somerville, and Prospect Hill

View as Map

This week’s tour takes us to Somerville, where the housing market is as competitive as in neighboring Cambridge and Boston.

At the $650,000 price point, size varies in Somerville from cozy to generous. If you’re looking for living space, storage, and a yard, you can still find it here—but not all in one.

Still, the Green Line extension is really happening this time.
