As a Realtor, it is inappropriate for me to make any claims on future values of properties, after all I do not have a "crystal ball." However, as a lifetime resident of the area, I can say I have seen a transformation here. Over the last decade, there have been many upscale rehabs and increased demand for homes here from a wider demographic. Many people wish to live here because of the dynamic culture and convenient location. These elements will contribute to a rewarding experience should you choose Hampden to purchase s home !!
