We've always said that Arlington has a cool factor that is unlike any other, and its mix of social and cultural capital has made it one of the most sought-after suburbs in Greater Boston. Recently, Arlington has experienced a housing market where average home sale prices have been up, and days on market and the number of homes available have been down. It is no wonder everyone is looking for a slice of Arlington life.
As a densely populated town that enjoys many benefits of being close to Boston and public transportation, it also has a thriving business community of its own that makes it a vibrant place to live and work. Young working professionals move here from the city because it's more affordable yet still has that urban feel. Families move here because of the good schools and kid-friendly amenities. Downsizers move here because of the vibrant arts scene.
As we like to say, come for the city-like vibe, stay for the family-like atmosphere.
The easy commute to Cambridge and Boston, rich and diverse culture, wide array of fabulous restaurants and shops and close community and strong school system – these are the X factors that earn Arlington its reputation as one of the best towns to live in the Greater Boston area.
