We're a family (with 2 little ones under 3) moving to Boston for 3 months in the Summer of 2013. Where should we stay?
Anywhere in the city will be extremely hard. I would move a bit out the city (Quincy & Braintree) and you would have better luck.

Best Of Luck

Best website (or is it Trulia) for researching year-over-year property value changes within a zip code?
Your best source for that level of local information is your local real estate agent. Yes, sometimes old technology (with modern access) beats new technology.
