I was brought up in Oak Square Brighton (1960-1986). I hear in the 60's it was a heavy drug traffic place (I was young) but what wasn't! It was an AWESOME place to grow up. I'm an original OLP grammar and high school gal. I loved my life in Brighton. I think I'm the last of a dying bread there as far as original single family people. I still many friends in the old neighborhood. Along with the last of my generation it's all yuppies and transplants but that's par for any course right? I'm a transplant to Tucson, Arizona so we all come from somewhere and I'm proud to say I come from Brighton, MA :) It will always be HOME. :) ... more

I think there is definitely a market for it. The new hostel on Stuart St in Chinatown appears to be doing great business. The company "Furnished Quarters" has several locations around the city. If you are going to seriously move forward I would recommend that you speak with a real estate attorney to discuss permits, approvals, inspections etc. ... more

Annette Lawrence answered:
What is your intention?
Do you have expectation of staying there forever?
Are you about to reward a good deed by victimizing the one who allowed you to stay?

You know it's a foreclosure, GET OUT!

The Sheriff will come and put you out. You can argue your rights with him. Oh, he will post a note to your front door announcing when the courtesy call is scheduled. You should be out before that date.

But you can consult an attorney and they can delay some action allowing you to possibly further punish the hand that you shook some time ago. If it was the owner, not foul.

Or, you could take that attorney money, add it to the money you saved by staying there and find another place to live.

Wendy Bian answered:
200% seller market, agree with others here. If the listing price is not ridiculously higher than that the market sets, it will sell effortlessly. Buyers really need to prepare well and use smart offer strategy to win the bidding war of hot homes. And conversion rate is low if you are an agent working on the seller side. You will face fierce competition of other listing agents. Being a buyer agent is not easy either, and has to be smart on offer-making games to help your buyer win. ... more

The areas near BU, BC, Northeastern, and other numerous colleges in town have student-oriented rental market, such as Allston/Brighton, Brookline-BU side, Mission Hill, Symphony area, Fenway-Kenmore. Other areas like Back Bay, Downtown, Beacon Hill, North End are less impacted by students, but still run on 9/1 cycles. These areas just heat up a little later in late spring or summer than those student-oriented rental markets which heat up as early as January. ... more
