I will be working in norwood and my husband in framingham. What would be good towns so that both our commutes are reasonable and we are also not too far from the city. So far i can think of natick coz dover/sherborn etc are too expensive and not sure about medfield, holliston etc. they seem to be far away from the city and seem a bit rural.
What are our chances of finding a new colonial (3bed/2bath with 2 car garage) in natick for about 500K? so far it seems impossible

Thanks for your reply, ya splits are not our style. All we saw in our price range were crappy 100 year old ranches/splits with no AC, no garage, not so great neighborhoods ....so depressing
Btw How do these people expect to attract any buyers without any pictures?

Sorry for previous post. It is under contract. What about Framingham? New construction there on Swift Rd for well under 500k.

We don't want Framingham, too much commute for me and not so stellar reputation.

There was one new one in Holliston for $529K. Holliston is lovely, but as you said it is a bit rural. Think you might have to do some compromising somewhere to get a new build though.

It would be very tough to find a new colonial of that size & price range in Natick. You can find a few in Holliston & Hopkinton.

I don't know if you're open to townhomes/condos but there are a few newer or completely remodeled condos of that size in towns like Needham that would put you a little closer to the city.

I know. Just curious, have you thought about an older home that's renovated/well maintained? New construction prices are still pretty out of sight.

Yes, it can be if you want a brand new home. The problem in the greater Boston area is that vacant land is scarce, so lots are very expensive.
