If it is a multi-family, it would need to be recorded at the registry as having multiple units and it would be taxed on that as well. It could be that you just need to go Lowe's or Home Depot, grab some address numbers and put them on the front of the apartment entrance. ... more

The Market in Milton and in Boston as whole is up. The shortage in desirable inventory is making it an aggressive market for Buyers. Many multiple offers and cash buyers are scooping up properties soon after entering the market. ... more

As you've heard from multiple sources here... in general you cannot. I'd like to point out that it's one of the characteristics that make Milton a great place to live. Great proximity to the city but a distinct neighborhood feel.

That being said, a resourceful homeowner can enjoy all the benefits of living in our town, voted top 10 in the country while having access to Quincy Marinas, or rent a garage or space in Quincy, Dedham etc. Get the home and neighborhood you want with easy access to the toys!

If you are looking for more information about a specific area, I've owned my own small brokerage ( Milton Homes, Inc ) and our new site is focused primarily on Milton and offers hard to find Milton information like every home sold, sales statistics, foreclosure or REO properties and more. It can be found at and offers direct access to every home for sale in Milton.

A local Realtor or agent can offer a list of Foreclosure ( aka REO ) or Short Sale properties. You may also now setup a search that specifically includes or specifically excludes these properties.

Both come with important advantages and challenges. You should contact an agent familiar with these transactions in the town or areas you are searching.

If you are searching in the South Shore area... our site offers a list of current foreclosures as well as instant and full MLS Access. It also offers hard to find information such as all sold listings and statistics such as days on market, list vs sold prices and more.

Best of luck in your search!
