Hello, Morgan:
Let me first begin by providing you with the url address for the Town of North Andover Once you log on, please go immediately to the
'About Our Community' page, where you will find answers to many of your questions. Morgan, I can
tell you from my personal experience that some of my past and current North Andover clients have chosen to remain in town - some buying up, and some down-sizing. Morgan, if you have a specific question that you are unable to find the answer to on the town's web site, please call us so that we may help you further.
Thank you, Morgan.

Hi Nik,
I actually commuted from Andover to Worcester myself, but that was over 10 years ago, and during typical am/pm commute times. Rt.495 (then Rt.290) is really your best bet from Andover. It was long, and often busy on some stretches, but certainly not nearly as bad as Rt.93 or Rt.95/128 can be (the Turnpike is further south, so you wouldn't do that from Andover anyway).

I also used to take a little known-detour for the latter part of the trip, taking Rt.2W from 495 to Rt.190S, right into Worcester ... this stretch was much easier and quieter - and more scenic - than Rt.495/290. If you're going to Worc. mid-pm though, I don't expect you'll have typical rush-hour traffic issues.

Hope that helps. By the way, I'm a REALTOR in Andover ... feel free to contact me if I can ever be of assistance, Good luck!

You really should speak with your lender on this one! Sometimes a line of credit can be done without an appraisal but it depends on many factors. You need to check the various programs your bank or lender provide. If you have owned the home for two years it is likely that you have not gathered much in the form of equity and appreciation so it would be best to find out what your lender thinks. And go from there. ... more
