We have peace and quiet.
In fact, you can ride the bus and sleep or work all the way to Boston from here.
Of course, then you have to go to the beach when you get home and on weekends.
But goodness, someone has to do it.

If a property is located right next door to the Station (or train tracks) that might be a bit undesirable while dealing with the noise & commuters (and pedestrian traffic). However, if a property is within 5 blocks from a T-Station that certainly can help property values, especial for rental properties.
Certain T-Stations might be considered more desirable than others, based on the actual location, commuter traffic and which MBTA T-Line it services.
Lots of variables to consider and for more detailed information about the advantages or disadvantage of any specific property, feel free to contact me directly.

In Needham we have the commuter rail again, nice to be able to walk to it, but not have it in your back yard.
Brookline, its everywhere except in the South Brookline.
All these communties are not effected only by having the T, but all are very accessable by car and most families have 2 -4 cars depending on age of kids.
