Hi Rece,

I can definitely help. Give me a call so we can discuss your options. Have you been pre approved yet? You can also start your search on my site at With years of experience in real estate I can help you find the place your looking for and negotiate the best deal for you. There are many areas right outside the city where you can buy newly constructed properties for a good price. Feel free to call my cell to discuss.

Here are just a few suggestions :
1. Make sure heating system gets serviced including hot water heater and pipes are properly insulated.
2. Make sure that windows are working properly and that the seals are not broken.
3. Make sure that any place air comes in gets sealed. You can buy winterizing supplies in Home Depot for very cheap money
4. Make sure you have an extra space heater around in case system fails and also have candles and blankets ready in case power goes out.
5. Lastly keep important phone numbers handy for management company, plumbers, electricians, city hall in case all the above fails.

This property is 3.4 miles from Berklee College of Music. Depending on the time of day and traffic, you should expect to get there from the house in about 20 minutes.

If you'd like any more information about this property or any other homes in the Greater Boston area, please feel free to get in touch with me by emailing through my website: If you'd like you can also give me a call at (617) 899-3162.

Take care and good luck.

Scott Godzyk answered:
An open house is not covered in the landlords protections unless it is specified in the Lease agreement. Giving a 24 hour notice to show is reasonable. Having an open house and asking the tenant to leave is not. Most landlords will make it worth the tenants time to work with them, those that dont often face angry tenants which can scare buyers away ... more

Rafael Hernandez answered:
I think since sales prices are going up and getting financing is not as easy as it used to be a lot of people are going towards renting. This influx in renters is causing the demand for rentals to be much higher therefore causing prices to increase also causing sellers to increase their prices due to the higher rents the properties are getting. ... more

When inquiring about crime statistics, real estate agents by law are not allowed to comment on safety in neighborhoods. I suggest that you contact the local police to hear the amount and types of crime activity so as to hear it first hand.

Here are a couple of links to crime statistics in West Roxbury that you may find helpful:

Best wishes!

Anywhere in the city will be extremely hard. I would move a bit out the city (Quincy & Braintree) and you would have better luck.

Your best source for that level of local information is your local real estate agent. Yes, sometimes old technology (with modern access) beats new technology.
