It would be nice to hear what direction you are following and if anyone here has heard from you.
Before you follow someones advice ask them what types of investment properties they have sold, what areas they are familiar with and what they own personally.
(Please note: when you choose an answer as a Best Answer, or at least give a thumbs up, it helps those who answer questions here.)

Talk to someone knowledgeable in the type of investment property you are looking to focus on. This is just such a broad question for a huge market (Boston).
I am happy to discuss your needs and options.
It is a wonderful time to invest in some neighborhoods but not in others. This includes the Boston proper as well as the greater Boston area.
I've been a Boston-based Realtor for many years; live in Boston; and have worked with many local and out-of-state investors seeking good real estate investments. Drop me a line at my website (GoHomeWithMichael.com) and we can proceed from there.
And have a great Labor Day!
