City Center:This is one of the more expensive neighborhoods in Weymouth. The median home sales price here is relatively high and more expensive than other neighborhoods in Massachusetts, and you know those landlords are going to pass off those high mortgage payments on their tenants. If you can afford this area, you will get to enjoy a super safe neighborhood. With an astounding low crime rate, the chances of being a victim of violent crime in this neighborhood are next to none. Dont you feel safe already? Does this sound like the place of your dreams? Well, lucky you! A significant amount of homes here are rentals, so finding a place to rent should be a breeze. $$$$
Old Spain:The coastal neighborhood of Old Spainis considered an urban neighborhood based on its population density.The dcor of buildings in this neighborhood reveal its true character. This neighborhood has easy access to the shore of the Hingham Bay, which lays on its outskirts. Spend your evenings at that harbor dining at the fine restaurants, while enjoying the pleasant breeze. Is this starting to sound like an episode of "Lives of the Rich and Famous?" Well, don't worry, you don't have to be either to live here. In fact, it's just the opposite. Even though home sales prices in the area are a little high, the rental prices range from average for the state to the lower than the state average. It doesn't make sense, we know. But, we aren't complaining. What makes even less sense is that the vacancy rates are high. Nice neighborhood, affordable rent and high vacancy rates -- nope doesn't add up. Hurry, rent a place here before people figure out what a deal they have been missing out on!$$$
Weymouth Landing:The community of urban sophisticates that live in Weymouth Landingcan be overwhelming to persons of dissimilar nature. If you are thinking of moving into this neighborhood, it would be wise to consider getting in touch with your artistic side. In a neighborhood where the neighbors are distinguished by their tastes in literature, music, live theater and the arts, theatrical and artsy activities are the order of the day -- each and every day. But hey, there's no rule saying you have to like these things. Go ahead, be a rebel, live here and declare art and theater are pointless. You probably won't make many friends, but you are sure to be talked about. Besides, there are other things to do here. Weymouth Landing is a coastal area after all. Spend your days cruising the Massachusetts Bay and mingle with other sea lovers.
You can rent anything from a studio apartment to a massive house here. No matter what you rent, your pocket book will feel it. This area is expensive, expensive, expensive. We say expensive three times, so you are sure to understand that we're not messing around. To rent here, you may have to tap into your checking account, savings account, retirement, pension and anything else you got. $$$$$
Idelwell Street:If the idea of convenience gets you all excited, this neighborhood may be your perfect match. The urban nautical neighborhood has plenty of waterfront shopping and waterfront recreational activities. No need to drive far when you live here. Convenience comes at a price, however. Paying for an apartment rental here is nothing to take lightly. $$$
Columbian Street Does the thought of high rent make you want to vomit? Well, then head on over to Columbian Street. Think of it as your anti-nausea medicine. The rental prices are low here and the neighborhood is nice and family friendly. Unfortunately, the vacancy rates are super low, probably because there are a lot of people that don't want to pay massive rental prices. $$
Lovell Corners:This is another neighborhood with super affordable rents. You will also have to battle super low vacancy rates. But, this area is a great one, if you love to eat out. There are plenty of restaurants serving Italian, Chinese and American fare here. $
