"People want to buy homes before prices and interest rates rise further." You mean they want to avoid being Priced Out Forever(TM)? I bet there's a Realtor(TM) in this discussion who can tell us more more »

I'm sure Revere's patriarch Danny McRizzo has something even crappier in mind if his casino push fails. Maybe an opium denâ¦ er I mean "slot parlor" at the Wonderland site is in the works? more »

The "casino deal" basically _is_ a subsidy/handout. The legislation was specifically designed to keep the track open. The people of East Boston voted _against_ casino gambling, though. I think it's sa more »

No. Just continually amazed at what an oasis of stupidity the lower North Shore (particularly Revere) can be given that it's less than 10 miles from a world class city. It's truly amazing that a 20 more »

"Are supposed to buy your home before you know if you're able to have kids or after they're born when you're sleep deprived and losing your insanity?" How about waiting until they're 2-4 when they've more »

It's not so much a question of whether bidding wars are "real" as it is a question of how common they really are. Scott, weren't you the one trying to postulate that Redfin's "statistic" of an avera more »

Since the "mandate" for a connection between the Blue and Red lines has been "un-mandated", they should _always_ allow this transfer. Like I said, though. The dirty old McGuidos who populate most of more »

"Live on the opposite side of a large body of water, pay for the infrastructure to cross it." Your comment indicates that you may not have the mental capacity to process what I'm about to say, but the more »

It's amazing how all around dumb this piece is. Is Roberto Scalese actually a writer or is he just some dirty old north shore guy who the Globe pays to come in once in a while to smoke cigars and tel more »

Because dirty old men and women on the north shore are too busy thinking about how glorious their casino is going to be to muster any political will to try to demand better treatment when it comes to more »

This article is just all around "north shore old guy stupid". Not only does he ignorantly try to support his thesis with a rare example of someone whose commute would be a tiny bit better (due to the more »

"I wanted two spouses." You definitely want to go west for thatâ¦ but I think you might have wanted to continue quite a bit further than 495. It's actually even quieter in UT and you'll see a lot mo more »

REALmaven: It may sound astounding to a born and bread Northeast urban-dweller, but cops in small towns in the midwest don't usually make anywhere near 6 figures (at least not through their official more »

"There is little difference between Littleton and say any town in Southern Ohio." Culturally, I agree. From a practical perspective, however, there's a difference: It's relatively easy for someone more »

Sean: You're still not thinking along the same lines as a typical *boro resident. See, the thing is that there _are_ lots of good paying jobs out there. The odds that you'd ever _have_ to take a more »
Posted 04/11/2014 11:11:07 EDT
I completely agree. I can't imagine living more than a half hour from the city, but for people who move here to work for Bose, EMC, Raytheon, etc. many of whose facilities are out near 495, they've more »

If you're talking "495 suburbs" directly west of Boston (like Westboro), there are actually a fair number of high paying jobs located in the towns around that area. If you really wanted to maximize y more »

I'm glad I grew up in a state where the state schools weren't looked down upon with as much scorn as they are here in the "commonwealth".

â¦Also notice that the "average number of offers" in Cambridge and Somerville are quite a bit lower. I don't think these "statistics" mean very much.
Posted 04/09/2014 12:58:30 EDT
Did anyone else notice that places like Revere also have an average of 7 offers per listing? http://www.redfin.com/city/14653/MA/Revere In other words, I wouldn't put too much stock in these Redfin st more »

The former Bradford College campus is now owned by the "church" wing of Hobby Lobby: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bradford_College_(United_States)â¦ doesn't sound too "hip" to me (a little Oklahoma i more »

Love how the North Shore continues to effectively not exist!

San Francisco has a machine boring a tunnel for a new subway line right as we speak.

I think that what Oilcansman is saying is that they lost BIG in the sense that they were Priced Out Forever(TM).
