“Which Andover Home Would You Buy” is a new Andover News feature where we pick three Andover homes for sale in a certain price range. Readers then vote on the home they would buy if they were in the market.

Andover’s housing market is cooling down after record peaks throughout the coronavirus pandemic. In May, the media home price was $829,500, down 6.5 percent from May 2022. There were 30 homes sold in May, down from 36 last year, and the average time a newly-listed home takes to sell in Andover was 15 days, up from 14 in May 2022.

To kick off this feature, we’re looking at homes near May’s median sale price. After taking a look at the houses for sale, you can vote. Results will be posted in the next edition of “Which Andover Home Would You Buy?”

26 River Street, $849,000

This five-bedroom, single-family hit the market last week. It has not one, but two dining rooms, 2.5 bathrooms and a “bright and sunny kitchen” with newer appliances and butcher block countertops. The backyard is inviting, and the property line extends beyond the fence for future use. The house is located near schools, playgrounds, and the commuter rail and offers easy access to highways.
