Affordable housing, friendly neighbors, mass transit cited by Boston Globe along with Lynn as up and coming communities to call home
By JOSH RESNEK
Everett was highlighted as one of the most popular cities close to Boston to move to in a Boston Sunday Globe magazine piece on the red-hot real estate marketplace which finds properties for sale very tight in and around Boston.
Lynn was listed as one of the favored communities as well.
Both Everett and Lynn received kudos as comfortable and friendly places to live and to work.
Both cities were singled out because of their proximity to Boston and the availability of rapid transit.
Everett has the silver line coming. Lynn has the Blue Line.
Everett has been highlighted recently in the Globe several times as to its favorability among those wishing to live close to Boston.
It was noted that in both communities, property values have risen rather dramatically but remain well below the exorbitant cost of living in Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville.
