Hi Gingerpoe,

the 2 items you mentioned - great schools and easy commute - usually come with price. It maybe quite difficult, if at all possible, to find a house under $500K in really great schools neighborhoods and easy access to transportation to get to South Station in Boston. There maybe some opportunities with foreclosed or short sale houses, however in good neighbourhoods they are less frequent and require a good understanding of what are getting yourself into.

I help a lot of people who are moving into the area and can tel you it takes more analysis & understanding of client's requirements to be useful answering. If you provide a bit more information about the family make up, how far are you willing to commute every day and what type of home you are open to (single family, condo, townhouse) than you'll get more out of responses.
