As to the inquiry above here are my answers.
1) There are multiple communities with in Marina Bay. Some newer then others. Your best bet to find out more information on that would be to enlist a buyer's agent in the Quincy area who is willing to assist(Like Alysa or myself) Also, for general community stats you may want to access http://www.massstats.com just to learn a little bit more about the demographics of Quincy.
2) As I am sure the agent's below will agree prices over the last twelve months have not been in favor of the seller in most communities. So even in a location like Marina Bay which by default seems to maintain it's "higher end" value there is a vast range of pricing in this area(short sales etc). So for all intensive purposes I would utilize Trulia or Zillow to do some comparison ideas for your own info and then enlist the help of a local agent.
3) Owner/Renter ratio is usually something an agent will know. Not usually easy info to come by with out one. However, this should be your in your line up of questions when viewing properties as this can be a determining factor for a bank when it comes to funding.
4) There is nothing new being built at this time. The Marina has a range of properties that date back as far as 1988 with some of the latest units being built in the early 2000's. There are agencies with in the Marina that do handle that area but I would be safe to say you can utilize a Quincy/Braintree agent to assist you as they have the same access to what's available as any other agent in the area.
My answers are not perfect but I would say you are on the right track when it comes to buying rather then renting. Please feel free to contact me at anytime and I can perhaps conduct a web conference to show you what is available and the info I have access to.

Marina Bay is a fabulous place to live. You can walk to the boardwalk, fine dining, night-life, boat slips and beaches. It is an easy commute to Boston; most of the complexes offer a complimentary shuttle (Mon-Fri) to the North Quincy T station. The prices vary depending on the condo complex, views you want, size, etc. Most of the condos offer professional on site management, concierge, maintenance, landscaping, deeded parking, private balconies and swimming pool.
Iâ€™d be glad to help you search for a condo that suits your requirements.
