Braintree Real Estate
One of the best things people love about Braintree holds true for all real estate; “Location, Location, Location”! Set at the junction of three major highways, yet just 11 miles from downtown Boston, you can truly get to anywhere from Braintree. The town is somewhat unique in that it has two “squares” with quaint shops, eateries and boutiques. Braintree also features the South Shore Plaza, one of the largest shopping malls in Massachusetts, as well as plenty of well-situated office parks and complexes. The early town planners were shrewd in keeping the residential areas intact, and siting commercial and industrial properties and projects near the main arteries that service the town. Residents enjoy a lower tax rate and bills than most neighboring towns. They also have a municipal electric plant, and lower water bills than neighboring towns. The school system is top-notch, with dedicated teachers and staff and manageable classroom sizes. Many recreational opportunities exist in town as well, with a municipal golf course, lake and river-front beaches, more than a dozen public parks, and miles of walking/jogging/biking trails. With a nice mix of single-family homes, condominiums, and multi-family apartments, there is a housing type available for nearly all the real estate buyers seeking to live close to Boston!
