Hi Marck, I would drive around and meet people.
Ask those who live there.
Interview the school professionals, coaches, etc.
Park in a neighborhood and see who notices you sitting there in your car.
Walk and talk.
Of course choosing a local real estate pro can help you save a lot of time.
(Not me, I'm on the Cape, but I can help you choose a local pro when you are ready.)

The best Boston neighborhood by far ! West Roxbury has it all - walking trails, great places to eat, nice library with good hours, a Family 'Y" - and a neighborhood center. Only lacking shops, but maybe
I grew up in West Roxbury, and still live there. It is a very safe town, and convenient both to Boston and the surrounding areas like Dedham, Needham, Westwood etc. I used to ride my bike everywhere as a kid without thinking twice. It's also nice that it is still a part of Boston with the feeling of a small town and has a lot of different commuter options.... more
Justwonderin, I lived in the Burbs and the outskirts of Boston as well as in the City itself. I did not like the Burbs... it became a project to go into "town" even though it was 10-12 miles....lived at the outskirts 3-6 miles still not perfect. Once I moved to the the South End then everything became walking distance or a cab ride away...BTW lived there for 10+ years...hope this helps.
FYI now I live in Southern California:)
Beverly Hills, CA
If there is currently a discrepancy in your homes listing you would need to contact your agent to change the error in MLS. Once the error is changed in MLS it will supply the new data to all of the feeds including Trulia. It is not instant and the old feed may linger! If it is an error in Public records only than you may need to contact your tax assessor to change the information.
Your home is showing cancelled in the MLS. If you have relisted it you need to contact your agent to be sure it is entered. If your home is not currently listed and you are looking for agents to represent you then you should interview local seller agents, myself among them. It is important for you to keep your property in the forefront, especially in today's market. Give me call or email me if you have further questions.... more
