I would use a local rental professional to save time and money and also to make sure you don't miss a great rental.

As you have probably figured out, it will be very little :-). You probably know from your own accounts that interest rates in bank accounts is nominal right now.

The affordable part is based on what you can afford/budget. Hire an agent that works for you. As for safe. What is safe? Someting real estate agents in Massachusetts can't comment on. Agents, stay away from the second part of this question.... It's not our place to speak of such things... ... more

The Boston Business Journal this morning had this to say about Milton:

"The town of Milton, home to Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, has been named the second-best place to live in Money Magazines annual list of the countrys 100 best small towns."

I can provide you with additional details, and help you find your ideal home there. Why not live in the second best smaller town in all of the USA - just a few miles south of where you are currently living???

Please contact me through my website below for complimentary, private consultation.

Kind regards,

Hello Laura,

I second the suggestions for meeting with a loan officer to find out what your credit is. I could refer you to some who would coach you to improve your credit/finances until you are ready to buy. There is no charge to meet with someone to go over tips with you. Just let me know!

Just playing the Devil's Advocate here....if your fiance is "set on living in downtown Boston" could it be because she desires being in the heart of city living...close to great restaurants....theatres...night life??? If that's the case, why not look at living right in downtown Worcester itself?????

I was born and raised on the South Shore of Boston so Boston was always MY TOWN. I have to say, however, I have lived in Worcester County for five years now and I find Worcester offers everything I need in City Life (but I don't admit that to Boston Mayor Menino). The housing market is more affordable too! Just a thought.....
