If you’re looking to buy a home in Massachusetts, you really don’t need to go any further than these 4 suburbs. Realtor.com recently did a survey highlighting the hottest zip codes of 2023 and believe it or not, 4 towns in the state were ranked in the top 50 in the entire country. One town in particular actually made the top 10! Before we reveal them, let’s take a look at how this list was compiled.
Realtor.com took the median prices of homes in each of these towns and combined it with the median amount of time spent on the market and number of people viewing those homes. According to the site: “The Northeast markets on the list tended to be higher priced, but offered more space at a discount relative to the central areas of high-cost metros nearby.” 6 of the top 10 towns are in the northeast. Besides the 6 in the northeast, the other 4 towns in the top 10 are in the midwest. They include: Chicago, Columbus, Detroit and St. Louis.
Now let’s get to the four Massachusetts towns that made the list of the top 50. Shrewsbury came in at #22 and Westfield at #21. Attleboro came in at #20 and the highest Massachusetts town on the list is Andover. Andover came in at #4. We will get into the details of those rankings below.
The other towns in the northeast that made the top 10 include: Southington, CT, Norwalk, CT, Ridgewood, NJ, Nazareth PA, and Pittsford, NY. Did they nail it with these findings? Or do you strongly disagree? Why or why not? We’d love to hear your opinions as to why you agree or disagree with these findings. And in the meantime, if you live in Andover, you get bragging rights at the very least until next year’s findings come out. Here are the northeast towns on the list and their stats.
