I was thinking about moving to Plymouth, and was wondering what the town was itself was like. Some questions I have are what the property prices and taxes are like. Any information would be very helpful, thank you.

I live in Plymouth and I can tell you the taxes per 1000 are high right now compared to surrounding towns. Primarily because tax revenue has been lost from the Pilgrim power plant. Also the assesments are all over the map. 2nd yr in a row I have had to file for an abatement. Hopefully Hollywood East will bring some tax revenue back.

You can check out http://plymouth.patriotproperties.com to get an idea of the assesments and the tax rate.

Even though it says the board says Quincy for me I do really live in Plymouth. I thought I had changed the Topix default zip.

Plymouth is a fantastic location. Not only is it great because of its central location,(close to the Cape, and Boston), it has outstanding amenities (restaurants, beaches, history, shopping). Housing prices have come down, and there is a large selection of homes on the market. This morning there were 381 properties listed on multiple listing. The median price for a home in Plymouth is approximately $300,000. The tax rate in Plymouth for 2009 is currently $11.07 per thousand of the properties assessed value.

There is also a great deal of buzz about Plymouth Rock Studios and Hollywood East building their $500 million production studios on Waverly Oaks near exit #3. As a Realtor, it is anticipated that values will most likely increase as this project continues to move forward. It is scheduled to be completed and open by spring of 2010.

If you need any assistance with finding a place to live, let me know. Good luck.

I have lived and worked in Plymouth for over ten years and love it. My parents visit often and like it so much they will likely retire here. There is a wide variety of living situations, from old historic homes to new condos and housing developments. There is plenty of shopping and strong support for schools. I don't know why people say our taxes are high. They are actually lower than three neighboring towns. I looked this up recently when I bought a home here. Good luck!

There are over 200 miles of private gravel roads, or what many call unaccepted roads in Plymouth Ma.
It's disgraceful. Most selectman that seem to be elected are business people in town or associated with business, the average real estate owner doesn't have a chance. Taxes are high, there isn't any trash pickup, you have to pay for a transfer station stticker, and take your own trash to the dump, or transfer station. Yes seniors have to also make the trash trip. Gravel roads are sometimes graded, but never rolled, this only helps out with the holes until the next rain storm, raising havoc and increasing auto repair bills. One other important factor is that property taxes can not be applied to fixing private roads. If you have asthma you can't live here with the dust conditions from the gravel roads. I think I've said enough. Your Choice
great place to live

tony i moved here recently and have found it to be a great place to live. If you think its so bad here you've got to visit NY or other shitty states to see how nice it really is here. I have not seen that many gravel roads but then again I haven't lived here long. As for the asthma your wrong, my fiance has asthma and went from using her inhaler constantly in NY to rarely using it here at all, but we live a block from ocean so that might help. Sucks about the trash but you do what you gotta, other than that its awesome ! and so close to boston ! and the cape !
