No one owns a public parking spot. Certain neighborhoods may have customs but even those are fakakta. Street justice for violating may result in flat tires or having your car keyed. Ask your neigbor as they would know best. If you have the $$ you may want to think about a garage spot. Some grages have monthly overnight rates which could work if you commute out of the city. You may want to really ask yourself is it worth it having a car in the city. ... more

Personally, I dont like taking out a 30 year loan to pay off an asset you have for only several years.

Rates are fairly low right now and if you have not taken advantage of them, perhaps it could make sense. If you dont have a financial planner to bounce a question like this off of, then perhaps it time to find one. ... more

Welcome to MA!

There are many wonderful Boston suburbs that your family will enjoy. I would need more specific information, however, to match you up with one that fits into your budget.

For example, I would need to know the following:

- Importance of public schools
-Number of Bedrooms, Baths etc.
- Style of home (One level living versus multi-level)
- Age of home (antique versus new construction)
-Private setting versus multi-family neighborhood

Basically, the more specific you can be, the better equipped an agent can be in pointing you in the right direction.

Feel free to email this information to me directly and I will provide you with a few of my suggestions!

Kind regards,

Judy Boyle

Your best bet would be to contact Boston Housing Authority. They are located at 52 Chauncy Street, Boston
and their phone number is (617) 988-3441.

Good Luck!

Hi Cathy, South Boston is a varied area, when you say still comes down to location, location, location!
Are you looking to be close to the T station or are walks on the beach before or after work a priority, these areas all have separate price ranges. South Boston is the city, some streets are mixed with commercial and industrial while others have the ocean and Castle Island on their horizons...we could give you a median price which would reflect all the condos sold in South Boston and finding the price where half sold above and half sold below...but in this real estate market I am not seeing average on any properties! All are just so unique. South Boston is a highly desired area to live in, so very much to enjoy here! ... more
