Everything's listed so high. It's best to buy low, sell high. Quincy has a 1+ Billion renovation plan that will be completed in the next 6 years. Better place to invest.

Richard Shapiro answered:
Is it true that a mortgage on a co-op property can only be granted with a 20% down payment in Massachusetts by law?
I dont believe this to be true, however 20% down may be the norm due to the lack of Co-op ownership properties with very few lender/banks willing to finance in that type of property.
