Boston fishes: Considering to buy a house/condo in the greater Boston area to end renting, which I’m so sick of. What are some neighborhoods to consider in terms of 1. ease of commute to Cambridge, Newton & Boston, 2. retaining/growing value from an investment standpoint.
Welcome and greatly appreciate any input!
