I'm a Realtor and don't work for Trulia but, I'm not sure if there is a downside to signing up for an account...just allows you to save searches etc. If you are still reluctant to do so contact your Realtor and he will be able to do it for you. Once your pictures go out on the internet it's very hard to get them down from all the sites where they are syndicated. ... more

You don't have to mention section 8.
The cat is your biggest problem.

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

Hello kosmo886,
The south shore is your best bet. Try looking in the towns of Abington, Braintree, Holbrook, Weymouth, Avon, and Randolph. All of these towns meet your commuting criteria and have home prices in your affordable range. If you are interested in searching in this area, I would be happy to help you. Just give me a call or send me an email, anytime....

Houses in Dedham below $300k usually need work and are not the open layout most young buyers want. There are two very nice brand new construction condos in this price range that have high end finishes, a great layout, and the attractive Oakdale neighborhood....the listing agent is Ann Atamian of Coldwell Banker... ... more

East Dedham is a great place to live. Being a homeowner on Bussey St and being one of the houses that had graffiti I can assure that we do take care of our properties but unfortunately some kids have no respect for our property. There was a short period of time we were getting tagged every weekend. after multiple reports to the police - and multiple times cleaning the grafitti either the kids no longer came to the neighborhood - or didn't have bus fare anymore to come to Dedham (there is a bus line on Washington st that kids would walk down Bussey St to get). As far as streets not paved? I don't know where in East Dedham you were looking. ... more

Kara Willis answered:
Hi there. Weathervane is a well respected over 55 adult community in the area. I have clients that live there and also know many owners personally. There are many "younger senior" owners who are not retired and still very much living with a busy work schedule. Weathervane provides a good location with the benefits of not having to deal with yard up keep, snow removal, etc. but you do pay for those conveniences monthly. Weathervane seems to have held its value over the last few years. The golf course is great and the club house will be finished sometime this year. The units are well built. There is a busy social atmosphere there as with many other adult communities, so I guess if you are social this is a good thing. If you are more private and introverted, you may not like having neighbors so close. I suppose this is might be a downside to any alternative of owning a private single family dwelling. Everyone I do know loves it there, and my mother is even contemplating living there as well. I hope this was helpful. ... more

I live in Highpoint... the shuttle runs every 15-20 minutes. Its like from 6-9am. Then it starts again at 6pm.

I dont think the Excelsior people are allowed to take it, but some still do anyway.

Star market is about a mile away, so its not a bad walk. the 245 bus drops people off right in front of the complex.

Kerry Harkins answered:
My name is Kerry Harkins, Broker Owner of Harkins Realty Group, Inc. I moved into Franklin 3 1/2 years ago and find it a wonderful town to live in. I have yet to find an area I do not like. That said, if you need to be close to the highway, then you should look in the area near Exit 16 or 17 on 495. Part of Franklin borders Medway and if you are in Northwest Franklin, you will be further from direct highway access. On the other side, if you live on hte south westside, you will border Wrentham and Bellingham. Both nice areas, but obviously the further you live from 495, then the access isn't as good. I would be pleased to talk to you further about your needs and I'd love to help you. Please feel free to call me directly on my Cell at 508-868-5306. Email:
Best regards,

Sandy Tobin answered:
Hi Joe, I think if you asked anybody in Needham they would tell you their neighborhood is best. That's because it's such a great town to live and grow up. Scott is right, there are denser neighborhoods with sidewalks and tree-lined streets where you can easily walk to town for an ice cream and then there are outlying neighborhoods where houses are spaced father apart and the zoning is one acre plus. Did you know that 25% of Needham is open space? That's what gives it its leafy feeling. There isn't a "bad" school in the district, so I think where ever you end up, you'll be happy. Hope this helps!

Jonathan Ashbridge answered:

Born and raised in Weymouth I can say I love this town. Location to everything is excellent. Neighbors are nice, schools are good, there is plenty of industry in town. One concern to note regarding schools, Weymouth has a dense, diverse population schoold tend to be over crowded almost like a city school atmosphere. For the most part Weymouth Schools have been updated, renovated or well maintained.

Depending on your commute I would suggest visting Hingham, Norwell, Scituate, Pembroke and Hanover if education is priority.
