Here are the results of https://github.com/panchilly/ma-jobs-analyzer

sorted in descending order of commutable jobs per dollar of SFH.

The price data was taken from that boston globe article https://github.com/panchilly/ma-jobs...rices_2018.csv

I would expect the top towns in this list to be among the better investments, particularly any of the ones that also have acceptable schools (e.g. 5 or higher)

A town like Framingham looks very interesting to me. VERY CHEAP and actually gives you decent access to jobs. Not the best access but the you can get a nice house for 450k there...

Interesting data. Thanks for calculating it!

Could also be named "places most prone to gentrification".

The big flaw here is assuming that 5 mile (or even 1 mile) commute is same as 15 miles. There is no penalty for that extra 10 miles, which is huge.


Also, I wonder why you chose 15 miles, maybe Natick is 15 miles from Boston as the crow flies??

How much worse is a 5 mile commute than a 1 mile commute?

Come up with a good heuristic to use to score the jobs then you can easily update the code with that formula.

You can play with the numbers.

If you shift the cutoff lower (its at 15 currently) you skew things more urban. If you increase it goes toward a more centralized location which happens to be suburban in this case.

One interesting thing to note is the semi circle formed by having the ocean to our east. If we were in say, dallas, with space to grow radially outward in all directions I would expect the centralized location to stay pretty constant at downtown dallas. Meaning even if you increased the cutoff the dallas core would be #1 regardless. The suburban outward growth would cancel itself out.

But we don't have a layout like that... Which is why ideal locations are skewed west. and we have radial highways with jobs on them.

If you change the arguments to 5 mile cutoff and 3% decay rate. You get a more extreme bias toward the closer-in locations. My gut tells me it is a little too biased

Natick still does pretty well It beats somerville in score per dollar and the values for somerville in the data set are way under estimated. I think the value is like 700k in there. It should be more like 1M+

I think a 5 mile cutoff is flawed and undersells suburb-to-suburb commutes. 15 miles could easily be 30-35min suburb-to-suburb.

I will, salary is actually in the data feed, haven't got around to it yet.

It won't change the numbers much. If anything, it might skew things slightly toward the burbs since there are some more low paid workers in Boston.

your assumption that the pay is so much lower out in the burbs is flat out incorrect. Go look for yourself. That site https://h1bdata.info is the best proxy for high paying jobs that we have.

This is ridiculous. The optimal answer is to have a high wage portable job in a place with lower housing costs. Mining Indeed for office drone jobs with soul-crushing commutes that are impossible to fill (which is why they're on Indeed) isn't very good data.
