Information about Andover Gardens Condominium

Asked by Yingnming, Medford, MA Sat May 15, 2010

I am interested in a unit @ Andover Gardens Condominium. We are downsizing from a single family home and are wondering if it is a good choice. How about the schools nearby? How friendly are the neighbors and how safe is the community? Any comments are greatly appreciated.

Hi Yingnming-

The school question can be very subjective and complex as every child is different in terms of learning styles and needs, and each family looks at very different criteria when evaluating what the 'right school' is for their family and children. That being said, you may want to start by checking out the numerous sites that provide various data and information on local schools. I have a number of these sites listed on my own website under 'helpful links' which can be found here: http://www.beangroup.net/agents/SigaSnipas/helpfullinks

Additional school and market information and market trends for Andover can be found at: http://www.beangroup.net/massachusetts/market-reports/essex-…

In terms of the neighbors and the community, I would visit the town hall, speak with the local police department and take a look at he town website on-line. Additional community information for Andover can be found here: http://www.beangroup.net/massachusetts/communities/essex-cou…

Finally, Andover condos currently on the market can be seen here: http://www.beangroup.net/Search/MA/Andover/condos?frm=agt&am…

At the above site you can also sign up for daily property e-mails to catch new properties and price reductions as they hit the market.

In general, a good buyers agent should be able to help you through the process of evaluating all of these questions an more. Feel free to call or e-mail me to discuss the benefits of working with a buyers agent. I'd be happy to chat with you!

A close family member lives in Andover Gardens.
I have worked on sales there recently and found it to be a desirable location.
The Andover school system is viewed as superior to most communities.
You can visit the town website and view detailed test statistics, demographic info and more about the individual locations.
The prices in the development itself are very buyer friendly at lows that we haven't seen in quite some time.
I recently marketed a two bedroom there that sold in about four days with competing bids.
The family that purchased it keeps in touch with me and they couldn't be happier.

If I can answer any questions for you feel free to call or email.
