The Best Zip Codes - The Boston Globe

The Best Zip Codes - The Boston Globe

The "Real Estate Issue" of the Sunday Globe Magazine has this great chart(link above) in it today. In total 200 zip codes inside of I-495 are analyzed on growth of median single family home prices, education level of residents, charitable giving, use of public transportation, racial diversity and many other factors. What we see, in the opinion of the Globe, is Brookline zip codes are 2nd, 3rd, and 7th out of 200. Back Bay tops the list with Cambridge(above Harvard Square) and the South End sneaking in there as well.

I will have more on this tomorrow, but this piece ties in very well to a similar article written in the Wall Street Journal at the end of the week which stated that so much of the housing market today changes from zip code to zip code (neighborhood to neighborhood). It is critical to evaluate what aspects of each community would help secure the long term prospects of the money you need to buy into them and make your buying decisions from there.
