Weston is a town in Middlesex County with a population of around 11,000 people. Thanks to the large area and a smaller population, houses in Weston are, on average, larger than those in many nearby towns and benefit from having a lot of wide open space.
With one of the lowest crime rates among west Boston suburbs, it is a popular town for families, especially with young children.
The town prides itself on its small community, country setting and school system. There are a number of popular walking trails throughout the town as well as quiet, quaint sites. Weston has three MBTA commuter rail stations, Silver Hill, Kendall Green and Hastings
Weston is one of the few towns in the MetroWest that actually saw an increase in the number of units closed from Q2 2019 to Q2 2020 (40 in 2019 versus 47 in 2020). This is indicative of what is occurring in the national real estate market: the pandemic has not had as drastic of an impact on buyer demand in blue chip suburb locations (Weston, Newton,and Brookline) as it has on the demand of Boston luxury units.
With a 17.5% increase in closing during the pandemic year over year,Weston had the largest overall percentage increase in sales out of any town in the MetroWest during Q2 2020
