Interesting decision you have here. Rental prices are at an all-time high around the state, so that can hurt you a bit. A lot of people are questioning whether renting is now worth it! Cost of renting can almost equal the cost of owning, so it may make more sense for you to invest in an asset such as a condo/home.
Here's a great video from NECN last week in regards to renting vs buying. http://www.necn.com/08/14/12/Shift-back-from-rent-to-own/landing_business.html?blockID=756925&feedID=4209
