Posted by Leslie Mann on Mon, Oct 17, 2011 @ 05:47 PM

I'm pleased to share this infographic we created to highlight home values across Boston's MetroWest suburbs. Mapping home values makes it fairly easy to see the big difference in prices as you head further away (or closer in) to Boston. Whether you're looking to live in Wellesley & have a lightning fast commute to Boston or get more house for your money a bit further away in Hopkinton, hopefully this chart will be a helpful rule of thumb.
