I’m ready to pack it up and move into a condo in a Boston location today. I’m blaming my unhappiness with our current living situation on the miserable winter we had which resulted in many hours of shoveling, car relocation and feeling house bound, etc. etc. so now I dream of city living. I want to just walk out of my building with no responsibility, food shop one bag at a time, sip coffee at the local Starbucks, know the vendors at the hardware store and chat it up with the local restaurant owners.
So I asked myself the same questions I would ask a Buyer/Client in our 1st conversation and came up with my answers to the 3 most important things I feel I must have in a new home:
1. 3 bedrooms (at least).
2. Decent storage
3. Garage parking.
With these criteria in mind, I ran a search on our site Boston/condos and came up with 14 possibilities. Unfortunately, with an average listing price of $2,000,000, that’s not going to work for me (I did mention I am a practical dreamer, right :)). So, back to the drawing board to re-vamp my priorities with more realistic parameters and search again.
This time I started by at looking at all the Boston, MA condos for sale in all Boston neighborhoods, like Brighton, Charlestown, East Boston, West Roxbury to name a few. I filter my list with the community pages on the Avenue 3 site for a snap shot view of these locations and then another property search with my new criteria. With a little tweaking here and there I’m somewhat confident that I’ll eventually find “my dream condo!"

We can still have some mild days in November great for walking around some of Boston's neighborhoods.

Who knows you might even find yourself entering the real estate market before the year's end! While your considering your next move, take advantage of some of the free or almost free activities in and around Boston and you'll be sold on the benefits of city life!
