Needham is primarily a residential suburban community with a strong school system and sense of community, encouraging to the town's growth and vibrancy. Needham is located 18 miles west-southwest of Boston with a population of 28,886 (at the 2010 census). It is fairly densely populated with an area of 12.7 sq. miles. Incorporated in 1711, Needham has seen many changes through 3 centuries. Today, easy access to Boston by commuter rail (3 stations in town) and highways (routes 128/95 and MA Pike) have contributed to Needham’s emergence as one of the more desirable suburbs of Boston. Needham has a lower tax rate ($11.29 per thousand) than many surrounding towns due to considerable commercial development, which is taxed at almost twice the rate of its residential property. Currently Needham is experiencing a building boom, with older, more modest housing being torn down and replaced with new, larger homes loaded with state-of-the-art amenities. Accordingly, the median sold prices have risen this calendar year thus far, $865,000 for 281 properties sold.
