Most Expensive Braintree Neighborhoods
Braintree is a medium-sized coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Massachusetts. With a population of 37,362 people and eight constituent neighborhoods, Braintree is the 42nd largest community in Massachusetts.

Unlike some cities, Braintree isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Braintree are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs.

Braintree is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Quite often, nautical areas such as these attract visitors and locals who come to enjoy the scenery and various waterfront activities.
One downside of living in Braintree is that it can take a long time to commute to work.

But notably, a substantial number of Braintree‘s citizens do make use of public transit in their daily commute, primarily riding the subway.
