Last week, Boston Business Journal came out with a list of the most and least affluent communities in Massachusetts. Lawrence was at the bottom of the list with a median household income of $32,851 and only 11% of adults possessing a bachelor’s degree. Those looking for an affordable home, take note — the median home value is $217,100.
At the very top of the list was Dover, with a median household income of $168,690, 5 times that of Lawrence. Don’t look to save a buck on housing here — the median home value is $791,700. In fact, Dover’s 02030 ZIP code ranks as the most affluent neighborhood in the country.
