Could you please tell me your price range, if your daughter has a car or wouldn't mind the MBTA.
Please call/e-mail me at anytime with questions and I can further assist you.
I'm a real estate sales person with Otis & Ahearn in Boston, MA. As you may know, Andover is about an hour from Boston on the Northshore. Does your daughter have a car? There is a limited inventory of 2 bedroom apartments for sale in Boston. What would your budget be for this unit? There are some other some other cities like Cambridge and Somerville that have young professionals and is a little closer to Andover. Please call my cell at 617-596-6478 if I can be of help going forward. Regards, Joanne
This depends on the budget you have in mind. Of course city living is ideal for a young person. However, city dwelling comes with a premium.
I d recommend Cambridge or Somerville. They have all you want.
Please check out our website, link below, for a quick free search of what is available in Cambridge and Somerville in your price range.
There are so many areas this covers and I do not think one agent would cover the entire area. Most good agents will cover micro markets so it may be best to work with several agents. Rentals are in ultra high demand and you may be shocked at the prices but it is best to cast a wide net and narrow it to the areas that catch your daughter's eye. Look for a FULL time rental Realtor to help. Areas that you may want to look at
The list can go on and on. It maybe helpful to look at http://www.blockavenue.com or http://www.walkscore.com
First of all, congratulations to your daughter. It's always great to hear when someone lands a new job. I myself relocated to Boston almost 30 years ago for work and I was a bit overwhelmed by the many options in terms of neighborhoods.
KNow as a Realtor I specialize in relocation clients in order to prevent them for being as overwhelmed as I was.
Please feel free to call me or have your daughter contact me so we can discuss in more detail what she would like in terms of local fun things to do and amenities. You can call me directly at 617.899.3162.

Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage,
There are many great communities to live in between Andover and Boston, Andover included. The trick is finding a location that would be a good investment property down the line... So, you want to own a place that is on either the T or Commuter Rail that would make it an easy commute into the city....
Reading, Wilmington, Melrose & Malden are all on the Commuter Rail... Malden is one of the more reasonably priced with decent rental income potential due to its proximity to Boston and the fact that it's also on the Orange line T...
I'd be happy to help you in your search... My specialties are Buyer's Agency and Rental properties.
