Home Owner, Brockton, MA
I've lived on the East side for over 40 years. I live near Routes 14 and 27 - a stones throw from the East Bridgewater, and Whitman lines. It used to be wonderful here but not any more. Too much development going on. There are NUMEROUS development projects that are in the works including a proposed Mosque, 35 + residential units going in just up the street and in the other direction Massasoit Community College is expanding onto a busy intersection on Crescent St. New homes and buildings are being jammed into every possible nook. This area of Brockton is congested as it is and it appears to be booming out of control. So don't think that what you see now will be what it will be like in 1-2 years. It's all changing and not for the better. We have hundreds of vacant houses for sale in Brockton but woods and green areas are being destroyed by over-develpoment.. I'd check it all out first if I were you. Your house value will be lower once all this mess is completed. Once all this development starts you might find numerous homes for sale in the area. Brockton sells out it's long time residents in favor of development. So thoroughly check out what projects are in the works for your area.
