Not including utilities? Seems a bit high for central. There’s a lot of good deals going on right now at the professionally managed buildings that have had units sitting empty for a while, I’d take a look at those


Thank you!

SFH? Yes, I can see that. Personally, I would check out the suburbs (I know, I know) - you can get closer to 3-4k in Watertown, Waltham, even Newton and still be downtown in 20 min via I-90...

Not SM1 but Milton is a lovely, leafy town with great schools, close to the Blue Hills hiking trails, 10 min drive from the ocean, and reasonably close to downtown Boston.


I pay $3100 for a 2b2a 1300 sf in Cambridgeport but no parking and it’s in an apartment building.

Trying to avoid paying an accountant, can I actually write off home office space/mileage if I was just permalancing for 3 months last year? Shouldn’t the 7 months of W2 take care of this 1099 shit?

Anyone at RSM or any other midsized firm know what the average pay for Senior Transaction services is? I would also assume the hours are a bit better than big 4 FDD? Looking to decide between industry or give another few years to public accounting. Also for the Chicago area or any MCOL area


I’m sponsored from Deloitte at my mba program and I’m planning to rerecruit for MBB. Some of my classmates and others in the program really question why I would do this. I personally did a lot of research into comp and it seems like MBB definitely would exceed in just a few years after mba. I guess just looking for opinions, is this an irresponsible plan? Or do you guys think getting MBB is def worth giving up my sponsorship

Currently working at Accenture as a C (promoted Dec ‘19), but I know I ultimately want to make the jump over to Deloitte. I am on track to be promoted to M in the 2021 promo cycle and I know Deloitte would likely knock me down one level either way. Due to COVID-19, it seems like it doesn’t make sense to jump ship for at least another year while things get back to normal. Any thoughts on if it’s better to wait it out and leave after making M (but how long after?) or try to leave earlier? TIA

My income is $6 away from the next tax bracket(32%). Any ideas on how to lower my taxable income? Last year, my additional source of income(cd accts, robinhood) net out to be 8k. So i know this will take me over to the next tax bracket. Currently, I do put 6k in ira, 3500 in hsa, do roth contribution 14% towards my 401k. Also, pay ~30k/year tuition for my grad schooI(dont think this helps lowering my tax?) anything that I am missing to lower my taxable income? What else do you do?

We started state testing today with my kiddos taking their FSA Writing. It is the first time I have seen them in school as they are a digital class, and such an amazing experience to see them together as they talked amongst themselves before we went to the classroom to test. You can see how much they miss being together. ❤
