I came to Waltham when I bought my first house as a single adult female about 10 years ago. Back then the housing market was more affordable and I got a lot of house for my buck. The most notable benefit of Waltham, is the fact that there is something for almost anyone here. If you're having a housing issue, you've been threatened by foreclosure by your mortgage lender or for whatever reason, can't afford to pay your rent, you will likely find the solution to your issue, within Waltham. I have, since the beginning, felt a lot of support from my neighbors and friends in and around Waltham. Waltham is mostly an inclusive city where everyone is welcomed and accepted, as long as you are doing your share to keep up with those around you.
