Right now i live in shrewsbury ( for about 6months now) and i really like it coz a) everything, like shops, is just a few miles away b) i love their utilities company, SELCO, coz their rates are unbelievable. The only thing i wish i could change is if i could move it abit closer to Boston....maybe about 30min coz right now i have to drive app an hour to get to friends in the city.
Started looking to buy a place but the nice ones are way over my budget... 225K. What other small towns, similar to shrewsbury, would be affordable for a first time home buyer...with a great school system too coz im thinking of starting a family in the next couple of years.

Good luck trying to find anything in your price range in that area. I'm from that area and had to move west of Shrewsbury to find something nice and affordable. I'm sure you might be able to find a short sale or foreclosure but you get more for your money in Central Massachusetts.
