Massachusetts may not have ranked at the top for highest percentage of vacation homes in the United States — like Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire did — but there are primary properties worth checking out here. And you may not need as big of a down payment as you might think.

A dozen open houses slated for this weekend caught our eye — from a two-bedroom condo with garage parking in Jamaica Plain for $379,000 to a penthouse near the Chestnut Hill Reservoir for $1,975,000.
