Homes for Sale in West Medford, MA

West Medford, as the name itself says, is the westernmost neighborhood of Medford, Massachusetts. The suburb is the largest district of the city, bordered by Mystic River to the south, Mystic Lake to the east, and parts of the Middlesex Fells Reservation and Winchester north. The neighborhood is separated from the Medford Center district along Governors Avenue, which serves as its eastern border. The suburb is mostly residential, but it does have a well-established commercial section centered around the West Medford Train Station. Other notable locations within this community include the Medford – Brooks Estate, the Oak Grove Cemetery, Medford High School, and Medford Boat Club.

Homes in West Medford feature the classical home style predominant throughout the Greater Boston Region with its beautifully crafted Colonial-style residences built in the early part of the 20th century. A variety of home builds are built from this original layout, with a significant number of them being rebuilt into multi-family residences and low-density condos. Townhouses, duplexes, and triplexes are also common home types available to buyers considering purchasing a home in the neighborhood.

Property prices in West Medford start around the mid $400,000s and go as high as $1.4 million. Waterfront properties tend to fetch a higher price tag, and the larger condo-style residences provide a more spacious living arrangement and rental opportunities. However, the community’s typical home option is the single-family houses that feature two to four-bedroom and one to three bathroom layouts. These properties typically start with 1,100 sqft in floor space, with larger residences coming in at 2,500 sqft.

What's Not To Love

There aren’t a ton of restaurants in West Medford, but you’re still close enough to Medford Center or East Arlington to enjoy some delicious options! The excellent quality of homes and reasonable price ranges of properties all add to the overall demand for real estate in the community. Although West Medford is quite large and has a high total number of households, the available supply can be quite limited. It is best to make a good offer if you get the chance to buy here to help increase the chances of you closing on a property that you like.
