Boston's Premier Buyer Brokerage
Honestly there are properties out there that meet your criteria but on the flip side inventory numbers are down and there is quite a bit of buyer/investor competition. My recomendation is to identify the key areas you wish to purchase in and find a Realtor to help you with your search.. .
I would also recomend that you look at properties on both sides of the Charles River. Boston and Cambridge as well as Somerville. Currently a studio in a good area with modest finishes rent
I have a property in Back Bay-Fenway that will be a perfect fit. They are 2 bedroom duplex that rent really well and they are amazing prices.
Please contact me directly for further info.
With your price being lower than 500K I would recommend the following markets:
*Dorchester (certain parts)
I will be challenging to find multi-families for under $500K unless you are willing to do investing in condos.
I hope this was helpful.
I have a couple properties in mind for you in the Boston area that I think you would be interested in. Feel free to contact me for further information in regards to the property.
