The South End of Boston is one of the more highly desired areas to live, so yes, in my opinion it is a great place for renting. It does however depend on your wants and needs.

Mr. Coker is quite correct, having a buyers agent at you disposal is always important.
Besides the fact that you will have someone working for you, you will also be able to have that person

Best of Luck,
