What a great question! I personally prefer Concord. However both area's have their own appeal. Best recomendation is to pick a few homes in each area to view and take a walk to the town center. Visit a restuarant, see the shops and walk to the T.
If you would like to schedule showings in each town - please feel free to call 978-460-2611 or visit
Ultimately a tour without viewing homes is beneficial, and if a buyer is interested in a neighborhood we'll stop and walk around. Buyers LOVE this!
My Buyers enjoy viewing the local shops, schools, cultural buildings, libraries and restaurants as well as many of the neighborhoods, and by the end of the tour they have an excellent perspective of the town of Concord.
After the tour I hand my buyers a comprehensive booklet about the Town of Concord and recommend that they spend some time walking the neighborhoods and Centers with a customized map that I provide for them.
We have a good time getting to know each other and the town of Concord, as well as plan a date to meet again to view homes.

Each center has center has a different flavor. One is more historic and has more artsy shops and the other has many shops which you will find yourself shopping in often. People prefer one area over the other based on personal preference.
You canâ€™t go wrong in either area. How much you can afford might dictate where you live. Each part of town has equally expensive homes. More than likely you will need to compromise between a home locations, square footage, acres, style, amenities, condition, and location to commuter rail or route 2 and 128 access.
Just prior to my arrival in town a slow and steady transformation started in W. Concord center and continues today. I happen to live within walking distance to W. Concord center. Some time ago, I considered selling my home. Though, I couldnâ€™t find a location I felt was superior to where I was currently living. So, I decided to do a major addition. Iâ€™ve never regretted my decision.
All three elementary schools are new. Willard was most recently completed just over a year ago. There are 2 middle schools and 1 regional high school. Talks are underway to build a new high school. There are several great infant and preschool options in town.
I would love to help you! I can show you the ins and outs of the town. Iâ€™m can offer you much knowledge on Concord and surrounding towns. I am very knowledgeable to all things related to children from infants through high school. Also, I understand commuting issues. In my prior financial career, I worked in Boston, Charlestown, Waltham, Burlington, and Westborough.
I have lived and worked in the Concord area for a long time. Both W. Concord and Concord have access to the train. W. Concord is a bit more affordable, but Concord Center offers the Cache of being a part of history. Budget and desires will dictate where you are going to be. If you have further questions please feel free to contact me. Best

In addition, we preferred West Concord because Concord is pretty rarified. There are lots of pretty affluent or just plain rich families whose kids think going to the Caymans for the holidays is a birthright. While we've taken our kids all over the world, we thought it was good for them to have as classmates in elementary school kids whose parents worked at the public radio stations, as software engineers, as writers, and not just as biotech CEOs and high-powered lawyers. [Concord Center has them to, but the balance is a little different.]
Concord Center and West Concord are both very nice areas closing to shopping, schools, commuter rail and more. The price range you are looking in could determine which area you might buy in. Also, are you more attracted to a single family, a town house condo? Large house? Small? I'd be happy to talk with you and answer more specific questions anytime.

Good luck in your move and I'm never too busy to help you find a new home.
Thanks for inquiring.
