"WE DON'T WANT to be known just as the witch city," says Dan Fox, co-owner of MerryFox Realty in Salem. This quintessential North Shore harbor settlement will never shake the epithet, but it is indeed much more than its infamous history. The venerable Peabody Essex Museum, which traces its start to 1799, is a trove of American, Asian, African, and maritime art, while just outside its doors is a bustling city center, with waterfront restaurants, shops from the crunchy to the cosmopolitan, and attractions like the House of the Seven Gables and Pickering House, the oldest private home in the United States. Condo development in the city center has taken off in recent years, and there and in converted older homes, says Fox, "you get a lot more square footage and ofter higher-quality finishes than you would for the money in Boston." Try $369,900 for 1,536 square feet, for instance. Single families, too, are priced right; the median list price for all properties is $206 per square foot.
