If you would like me to help search for something else just as spectacular, please send your email address to me along with your price point and a list of the features you would like to have in your new home. I look forward to helping you find your new home. Cheryl Cheryl.firstname.lastname@example.org... more
When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
Hi, I have lived in this area for 17 years, both on the "front" side of Shaws off of Grove St. and on the "back" side of Shaws behind the Calvary cemetary. I have owned three houses in this area and as a Realtor sold many homes in these areas.

We have three children, two of which are out of the school system. They both were accepted into desirable schools, Babson and Wheaton. Waltham has a strong arts program, as well as science, business and a good selection of sports and clubs. Eight of the schools have either been built new or completely gutted and rehabbed, all on state money ( back when they had some), so our taxes weren't affected.
One point. We have very low taxes, but some don't realize that we also have an owner occupied exemption, which can lower them by another $1,019.23 per year.
There is a residential exemption for residential property of $88,607. This is equivalent to $935 in taxes saved if you live in your home. I also believe there may be a senior citizen tax rebate based on income, but couldn't find anything on the assessor's web page. You may wish to call the Assessor's office. The folks there are very helpful.... 781 314 3200... more
