Hi Rebecca,

There is a good amount of inventory right now in that price range. Currently the neighborhoods off of Weston Rd. and also the ones off of Oak St. behind Linden St. have the most to choose from. Feel free to send me your email and I can forward all the listings (in your price range) to you.

Hi Rebecca.....Great areas are the Standish Estates area near Mass Bay Community College (where I live) as we are surrounded by conservation land, the neighborhoods off Weston Road northbound and the area near the Sprague school off Oak Street.

Of the properties currently on the market, I would recommend 44 Pinewood, 75 Pilgrim and 12 Granite.

Hope this helps.......Karen

Dear Rebecca,

Neighborhoods near Perrin Park (Hardy School) and Pilgrim Road (Bates School) (both off Weston Rd. but in different directions) are popular and have homes in that price range. The Farms area (Schofiled School) is also popular and homes do come on the market in that price range.

What you will need to focus on in addition to the popularity are the characteristics of the neighborhood that make it popular (Is it walkability to town/train or is is proximity to a school or park?, for example). What is appealing to some may not be high on your list.

Also, you should consider what style home you are most interested in purchasing. Wellesley is a place where most houses are (and many homebuyers seem to prefer) traditional colonials. So if you have some flexibility in the style of the home you buy, you may have more choices, particularly in this price range which often captures ranches and split level homes.

A quick search of the current inventory shows about 17 houses on the market between $650K and $850K (a bit below and above your figures, just to capture inventory). Maybe one of these will work for you. Otherwise, there is often an up-tick in inventory now that the summer is over. Keep an eye on new listings.

Best of luck - Andrea
