I've always thought a major goal should be getting the Blue Line to service Lynn and Salem the way the Red Line serves Quincy and Braintree. It'd be a huge boon for those communities and those looking more »

Former co-worker lives in Quincy. Amazing city- they can walk into the downtown and the Fat Cat and Alba are to die for. As is Little Duck.... Take the T into Boston... right down the road from all th more »

Ohhh REALmaven.... I do, as does my spouse, have very decent jobs. We however were just the first round of early millenials to get hit with skyrocketing educational prices. Our graduate degrees from " more »

Maybe true in the city and around 128....
Down Rt. 3 and 95 and along 495 in the South- untrue. Not much is moving. If you look out of the bid war zone, you may find yourself pleased. We are.

Hop in a plane and ride east for several hours to Europe or West to San Francisco. And behold, there you will see the future of Boston..... Eventually- the city will drown in its own success. Is it th more »

"Can't look at one more fixer-upper? Tired of bidding wars on every half-decent home that comes on the market? Wondering when, if ever, prices will go down, or at least level off, in Greater Boston?"- more »

How interesting- because I see plenty of well depreciated homes on the market with ridiculous asking prices!!

I've been to Europe enough over the years (business, pleasure and as an exchange student) to know that the 2 class system is more broken than what we have here in the states. You walk through inner ci more »

The hypergentrification of places like Boston and San Francisco will eventually be their undoing and deathknell. You essentially turn these regions into "2 class" places. The hollowing out of the midd more »

My parents were landlords when I was young and living with them. It was horrible. Tenants did everything from jamming bones and peach pits into the garabage disposal- breaking it- and demanding it get more »

Its actually pretty ingenius- own as a yuppie, rent it out as a suburban weekend warrior, move back in as an empty nester.
But just remember- it really stinks being a landlord.

I'd add: Kingston, Pembroke, Mansfield, North Attleborough, Rehoboth, Plainville, Mendon and Wrentham all to that list too. 495 and Rt. 44 all south of the City have some great deals.

60K for an attic bedroom seems a little over the top in reported cost......... maybe if you were turning it into a master bath or putting in several skylights..... Drywall and lumber is not that expen more »

In short- the student loan debt bubble will pop. And is will be a very dire set of circumstances. While average debt has climbed, and true some millenials made poor choices in degress, etc, there is n more »

Well, there are several contributing factors here: 1. Materials costs continue to rise like everything else. But the TYPW of materials that must be used is changing as well. This is archane language t more »

I've read the entire report. Some of it seems to have common sense and meaningful recommendation, I feel it could have been far worse in terms of bans, further regulation, etc. One thing advocates hav more »

FInding the parameters for suitability vs. unsuitable right now are very important. What will make someone unsuitable? Also- applying those metrics to rifles and shotguns is also a concern- as everyon more »

I look forward to reading the report. Perhaps it should be released at the same time news on such a divisive topic is broken? As a strong advocate for 2nd Amendment rights, what was listed doesn't sou more »

Really? All this discussion? Let me make this easy: massive student loan debt due to the rapid and astronomical increase in the cost of education + astronomically inflated property values in the area/ more »

How about some recognition for other regional leaders? The mayors of the "Boroughs" of Boston and other satellite cities perhaps? Joe Curratone of Somerville? David Maher of Cambridge? Setti Warren of more »

Always scary to see this for the people who live there.
Even scarier to think about when it happens here to say, Mt. Hood or Mt. Rainier........

Go to the supermarket and you will see that inflation has been let out of the bottle. See what a loaf of bread or gallon of milk, or chicken or pork or beef now cost. Eggs and butter too.... You can g more »
