Moving back to Cambridge and looking for a good school district.

Asked by , Livermore, CA Wed Jul 15, 2009

My husband and I are moving back for work around Cambridge for at least another 3-5 years. We are expecting our first baby soon and would like to find a single family home that is relatively close to the T or in an area close to Cambridge that has a good elementry school district. Are we expecting too much to find a home under $350K that's at least 3 bedrooms and 2 baths? What are some good alternatives?

That is difficult criteria however there are a couple options.

1) Broaden your search to the following locations and then cross reference them with a site like http://www.greatschools.net/ and see if the elementary schools match your criteria:

Watertown
Arlington
Newton
Somerville
Medford

2) While i know you are set on a single family, you could consider a 3 bedroom condo in a multi-family. This would give you the charm of a single and potentially more options to choose from. Here are a few examples using all the neighborhoods:

3) in Cambridge specifically your criteria is hard to match. That said if you can move quickly yet can be patient to wait for the opportunity you may be able to find what you are looking for. Below are two examples of single families in a fantastic locations in Cambridge that if they sit a little longer might be ripe for a great deal:
