Comment on: How wealth gap complicates sibling relationships - Business - The Boston Globe
Posted 12/31/2014 11:56:28 EST
I think the more interesting question was what do the wealthier siblings do for their brother/sisters? Did they help out when needed? Help with a down payment for a house? Or were they judgemental? Wh more »
Comment on: The Downfall of Watch City Brewing
Posted 09/23/2014 03:22:32 EDT
I agree with the comment re: competition. There's too many very good restaurants on Main/Moody in Waltham to have something so-so survive. One point missing from the article was the preponderance of G more »

I think the gap between reality and polling is a reflection of poor polling techniques. If you are only calling people on landlines, you are only getting a segment of the primary population. The peopl more »

Scott, your family is not little. Yours is above-average size. Of course it used to be you'd raise that many kids in a small ranch with 1 bathroom. It's our expectations that need to change, not ju more »

Clearly Redfin only looked at NORTH Waltham. The statement of housing type is completely inaccurate for the other parts of town. What's nice about Waltham is the wide variety of housing styles, albe more »
Comment on: Newton mayor supports homeless housing, just not in Newton - Boston.com

I agree with Adrian; I'm not pleased about the Waltham comment. Newton is big enough to have their own affordable housing -- even for those recently homeless.

Thus the reason never to use median numbers. It is not meaningful as much as average!

If they can't afford market rate rent and are eligible, they should get a section 8 voucher. That would make up the difference between what they can pay and what the apartment actually costs. I'd be more »

I can work from home so I don't have to use any leave in the above examples.
Posted 02/27/2013 11:49:04 EST
Why is this being framed as a PARENT only issue? We ALL need to work from home at times: delivery of costly items, repair person committing to a 4 hour block when they may show up, when you don't wan more »

Where's the real estate lawyer's posts? I think his name was Richard something?. He's great. Definitely need a variety of perspectives for this blog to be successful imho. Especially experts.
Comment on: Do Massachusetts landlords really have it tougher?
Posted 01/09/2013 12:12:06 EST
Yes, MA landlords have it worse. We are the only state in the union that can't charge late fees unless the tenant is over 30 days late. That's one small example.

No mortgage contingency may also mean that there's also no inpection contingency. I expect this market is older homes and the seller may not want to have to renegotiate price or just plain deal with more »

I understood the point of the story. After Frank's waffling for years and listening to his DIY dreams, his wife put her foot down and now they have a house. You go sister!

Just as when you apply for a life insurance policy, you have to pay more if you say you are a smoker, I fully expect in the future that homeowner's, fire and rental insurance properties will be higher more »

I don't think SVV can hold himself/his situation as a common example. Few families have 4 kids these days. Not everyone even has kids. I get frustrated when Realtors talk someone up to more house w more »

SVV, I'm surprised. You need to research 40B, section 8 and other programs before making such sweeping and inaccurate generalizations. You've done better. Here in Waltham we have an overabundance of more »

Unfortunately, even on Craigslist one can only see what landlords are ASKING for rent, not what they are getting. We need a Case-Shiller index on how much each unit ACTUALLY rents for to get real dat more »
