Are you talking with people who live there or just "heard" something? Personally I've found some VERY nice areas there. You should really consult with a local buyers agent experienced in Newton, go over your interests, needs, wants, and other pertinent housing interests and they can guide you in selecting areas & types of properties that might interest you. Alot will depend on what you want & value.... more

It is legal for an owner to do anything they want with what they own. Offers are not contracts. Once everyone signs and all initials are done then, and not before, it becomes a binding contract and terms can't change then. But before that they can. There are no "dibbies" in real estate.... more

Read the buyer's/renter's agreement with the agent.
The answer--contained for certain in the agreement--is "probably yes."
You say there was never an executed lease. OK. So? Read the signed agreement to see what the proposed tenant agreed to.
The question isn't (here) whether there was a "deal" in the form of a lease. The question is whether there was a "deal" in the form of an agreement where the real estate agent was owed money if he/she performed certain services.... more
Newton is really more diverse than one would think, ranging from the close quarters of 'The Lake' neighborhood of Nonantum to the lofty heights of Chestnut Hill and West Newton Hill. I've been helping people find rentals since 1983 and have yet to find an easy answer to this question. One great thing about Newton is that since it has been developed as a series of small centers along crossroads, it is very easy to live within walking distance of one of these Newton Villages. Thus, most of Newton is not a bedroom community, but an active city with a small town character and pride. If you need the green line, focus on Newton Centre, Newton Highlands, Waban, Auburndale and Chestnut Hill. Commuter rail or express bus is along Newton Corner, Newtonville and West Newton/Auburndale. Great schools are everywhere. Most rentals are along the corridor of the Mass Pike, the norther neighborhoods, and parts of Rt 9 (Upper Falls). Many apartments are in two family homes as opposed to buildings, with more green space and neighborhood feel than a large apartment building. My suggestion: grab a large Dunkin' and spend the morning zig zagging through the streets and stop in the villages and walk around a while. When it feels right, you'll know.... more
