What about the area between 495 and 95? Acton through Wrentham?

natick, ma - Google Maps

Is communing North or South in MetroWest a bad idea instead of going on the major highways? You have to forgive my ignorance but currently I live about 10 min away from my job so I don't know. And yes, I'm ready to give up the current job.

Could someone explain to me what a "refuse removal fee" is?
There's absolutely nothing wrong with the towns between 95 and 495. Just like the rest of Mass some of the towns there are nice and some not so nice. They're much cheaper primarily because they're much longer commutes into Boston.

A refuse removal fee is a fee for trash pick up. Not all the towns in Mass take away your trash and some that do take it away charge a fee.

Refuse removal fee = you have to pay for them to take your trash.

I would avoid commuting from Quincy. That's a terrible commute.

Honestly, I think you should be able to find at least a two family in Natick or Ashland or Framingham with what you're looking for.

agree with that. plus if you factor in spendings on gas. Also, while google maps are a good way to check itinerary, they don't reflect traffic jams. I would suggest looking in Metrowest area.

There are lots of great places to live in the metrowest. Quincy sounds like a mistake someone from out of the area would make b/c they just don't know what its like living here. It snows here. 45 mins on Google = 1:15 real life east coast boston drivers. Hard to do in the snow.

Also if you are moving, try http:\\MyMove - Moving tips | Savings for new movers it can help you settle in once you've figured out where you are going to live.

Thank you all for the helpful responses. The only reason WHY I'm even considering Quincy is because a friend is willing to rent it to me as a tenant at will for very little money. What about Grafton? Do you think Grafton is too far from Natick (in terms of commute)? I figured I would be going against traffic on 495 for the bigger part of the commute, then will just have to endure the 10 min on 9 to the office.
