This Sunday’s Boston Globe magazine was the paper’s annual real estate issue and two Northern Middlesex communities - Billerica and Lowell - were featured in a story called “The Hot Five: Towns for First Time Home Buyers.” While the section on Lowell promotes many of the city’s downtown amenities, there is a “if this is all you can afford, it’s not really that bad” tone to the piece. for example, the reason Lowell’s so attractive to first time buyers is that the median price for a condo had dropped 25% in just one year. And then there’s this:

Lowell’s school system is considered troubled by some, but its special education program excels, and St Michael Parish School is a good private alternative. New parents might consider moving across the Merrimack River to Dracut for better schools and single-family homes under $300,000.

How can we go wrong with marketing like that? The other towns in the “Hot Five” were Watertown, East Boston and Brockton.
