Hi Chaitra,

If you're looking in Brighton your condo fees will be in the $250-$450 range in most cases. If you look in the $425K range your taxes will be around $400/mo give or take. Depending on credit score even a 5% down payment could put you under $3,000. We even offer 3% down programs that will likely have your payment below $3,000. Feel free to give me a call if you have any questions, my office is located on E Broadway in South Boston so I know the local market very well. I hope this helps! ... more

The South End of Boston is one of the more highly desired areas to live, so yes, in my opinion it is a great place for renting. It does however depend on your wants and needs. I love the South End for its proximity to downtown, restaurants and bars, and beautiful views from some of the rooftop decks.

Happy House Hunting!

I'm a Real Estate agent in NY where Dual Agency is still practiced regularly. I have been an agent for Both seller and buyer quite a few times. It comes down to your relationship with that agent, do you trust them? As an agent on both side we are a bit more limited as to what we can say and do, but we are still there to help and guide you as we can. It requires a bit more due diligence on your part, put the benefits usually outweigh any issues. Have an open conversation with that agent, ask them to explain to you what they can and cannot do as a dual agent, get all the facts, and then make your choice! ... more

Trulia has an option that shows crime rate. But your best bet is to walk to the nearest police station and get the information directly from them.
