I will be working in Cambridge, she very possibly will be working a good deal south in Plymouth, MA. She is far more willing to have a longer drive time than I am, but probably still maxes out at about an hour before she will lost her mind. I will also be going into Chestnut Hill at least once a week.
I would love easy access to the "T" but we have cars so its not necessary.
Thus far we have looked mostly in Watertown/Waltham and Quincy.
We have heard so-so things about Quincy although we did like some spiffy new apartments there.
We have seen a few buy owners from Craigslist that are terrible but at least one we really loved (but someone swoopped in and got).
So I would love any suggestions on areas other than Watertown/Quincy that we should consider. I won't lie - we are curb appeal snobs and are probably snooty beyond our income level.
We need to keep rent below $2000 but would love around $1600 and need at least two bedrooms.
So suggestions? Areas to look?
If anyone has any other "moving to Boston advice" other than apts feel free to share.
