Posted by Avenue 3 Real Estate on Wed, Mar 21, 2012



With the snow melted and the green tips of spring's perennials popping through the dirt, you want to get out the rake and trowel and get your garden growing. Oh wait! You don't have a yard for a garden. Not to worry. Container gardening is the fix.

Avenue 3 Week in Review: Pendings Sales and Rent or Buy in Boston MA

Posted by Avenue 3 Real Estate on Wed, Feb 1, 2012

 
JANUARY 31, 2012
 

 

 

Rent or Buy in Boston, MA - You be the Judge 

  

 Boston, MA, with 23 diverse neighborhoods allow the renter or buyer many options and at all price points. 

 

A recent article from boston.com"In a tight local market, no relief for renters, apartment hunters", stated that increased demand & declining rental inventory for 4th quarter 2011, increased average monthly Metro Boston rents to $1,686, up from $1,649 in 2010 and $1,600 in 2009.

 

  Rents are expected to continue to rise through 2012.  Now may be a good time to think about a home purchase.  With over 1500+ Boston properties (Avenue 3 property search) currently on the market and 30 year fixed mortgages at 4% or lower it may make sense to buy now.

 

Recent Boston condo closing:

 

  South End: 1 bedroom, 610 square feet, updated condo with central air and a private enclosed patio on W. Newton Street, closed in December 2011 for $327,500.  With 5% down ($16,375), a 30 yr fixed mortgage at 4%, including condo fee and taxes bring the  monthly expenditure to $1,921.36.....search for recent closings here...Avenue 3 Sold Properties Search

Dreams of buying a condo in Boston, MA with all the trimmings!

Posted by Lois Ardito on Mon, Mar 14, 2011



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.
