Brad what an interesting market you've got then what we have here in PHX.  Average age 0f 83 years old and average price at 1.6M.  Our market is so new compared to yours, it's hard to even compare the two.

Yes, Anna, that's so true. The styles are so different, too. Also, Phoenix has worked around one large mountain, stopping on one side where the elevation rises, but that leaves lots of room for huge freeways and large urban populations. The streets of Boston are famous for their origin as cow paths that wind around in loopy one-way configurations that are nothing like the grid in Phoenix and its exurbs.

This coastal population has built homes and roads near beaches and marshes, and through the woods and ponds, leaving many of the trees and natural features unpaved, though not unmolested.

Here, the entire population of the nine South Shore communities I serve, from Hingham, south of Boston, to Plymouth, north of Cape Cod, would fit inside Mesa. Cohasset would be a neighborhood in Scottsdale. Here, one highway, Route 3, is the only major artery through the area, north to south.

Route 195 is the road people take to and from Cape Cod from Connecticut and New York City, heading west from the South Shore toward Providence, Rhode Island. Route 44 cuts across to the outer ring road of 495, quite a ways inland, from the southern part of the South Shore. To get to western Massachusetts, one goes to the north end of Route 3 and takes Route 95 to the Mass Pike. That's it for major highways to and through the South Shore!
