In the last 2 areas you will be limited in amount of inventory in your price range but they do exist.
How are you? In order to completely answer you question, i would need to know specifically what was your search criteria, what features where you interested in having in your home? Also, it seems that you are open to a larger commute to Cambridge, pending on your search criteria, i'm sure you can find a property that is within a shorter traveling distance then that of New Hampshire. Please email me directly with this information and i can send you an email with a list of properties that would be within your price range and search criteria. Thanks in advance for your questions, looking forward to hearing from you.
p.s. Of all of your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers, who do you think will be the next one to move, buying or selling?

What type of community are you looking for?
What commute distance/time can you live with?
What is most important... school systems, type of home, commute distance, type of community, etc...
Would you drive or do you need access to a commuter rail?
Anyways, these are just some questions to be answered. There are tons of communities in the greater Boston area that would fit your criteria if you are willing to look as far north as southern New Hampshire.
The best thing to do is sit down with a buyer's agent and start to sort out the communities that you would truly be interested in. There are people who live in Bedford NH or Manchester NH that commute to Boston everyday and they find that acceptable. Many of these questions are subject and differ from person to person. It goes without saying as a generalization the farther you get from Boston the more inventory qill be available to you.
Good luck and take the time to consult with a good buyer's agent it will make your life much easier when it comes down to making the move.
