P.T. Vineburgh Chimes in On U.S. News & World Report’s Pick For Best (and Worst) States

U.S. News & World Report recently published a report of the best and worst states according to a variety of factors. They looked at 7 factors such as education, health care, and economy to see how each state stacks up. It should come as no surprise that Massachusetts toped the list overall! It ranked in the top 5 in 3 categories including 1st in education.

P.T. Vineburgh, founding partner of Charlesgate Realty, sat down with realtor.com to talk about the rankings. His comments were:

“You’ve got great vacation destinations and a lot of history,” he says. “You have Boston, but you also have the Berkshires, you have Cape Cod, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard.”

He also bragged about the state’s leading colleges and universities, including Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, as well as the variety of housing options. They include Colonial homes built around the time of the American Revolution to newer subdivisions going up in the suburbs.

“We’ve got a nice mix of urban, suburban, and rural living all within a two-hour radius of each other,” Vineburgh says. “You have some of the most expensive real estate in the country now in downtown Boston. But it definitely gets more affordable once you get about half an hour outside of Boston. And it gets more affordable as you go to the western and central portions of the state.”
