norwood, MA - 02062
Norwood consists of about 30,000 year-round residents and is home to the Norwood Automile which is a great place to buy a car. In fact, we bought our Subaru Outback at this dealership last year. Most of the major car manufacturers have dealerships on the Automile.
Its residents describe the town as a quiet rural community, a relaxing place to retire, or even raise a family. Norwood is a highly desirable, yet still affordable community to call home. U.S. 1 is a major artery through Norwood with quick access to Interstate 95 and Hwy 128. However, if commuting via public transit is important to you, the Franklin Line runs from Forge Park-495 to South Boston. The MBTA also provides bus service.
Great Schools provides ratings for most schools in the United States. Below, you can see what schools are near the address you are thinking of buying and then compare it to other neighboring schools.
Norwood’s five elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school are operated by the Norwood Public School district. Inform yourself of bus transportation information before assuming transportation is free or available.

Search Norwood Real Estate
This is Norwood’s best real estate site to search for: homes, condos, multi-families, land and foreclosure properties. It is seriously the only site you will ever need to find your next home or investment property! Searching is a breeze. Not only is searching a breeze, you can pick which type of housing – single-family, condo, or multi-family – you are interested in seeing at a glance.
*** If you should see some properties listed twice it is because brokers like to list a condo/townhome as a condo plus as a single-family house, or list a dilapidated house as land, as well as a residence.
