When I was a kid I had a hard time saying Massachusetts in grade school. I’m still not sure I say it perfectly well! I can remember my teacher breaking it down into the various syllables and having me say it slowly. When I could say it slowly, she would ask me to say it fast. Then I would mess up. Though I might never be able to say it with a refined Boston accent, I really like living here. Recently my wife and I were looking for apartments in Arlington MA to live close to Cambridge but not right in it. (more…)
Sometimes finding an apartment is all about location. No different than when you are buying a home, where you live needs to be convenient to the places you need to get to. At times in an expensive city like Boston, size and amenities have to be sacrificed in an apartment search in order to get a place in the best location, but there are other options that renters can sometimes overlook that are ideal. For many, choosing apartments for Boston area is tied to the commute they make to work. This is the case whether you drive or take public transportation. Both can be lengthy commutes, though driving is almost always the more taxing option which is why people like to live close to the T when possible. The good news in Boston is that though so much of what renters want access to is in the city center, public transportation is available in the greater area, so looking just outside of the city can be a good option for many looking for more bank for their buck along with a bit more space.
Boston is a vibrant city with a lot of great history, events, shopping, and restaurants, not to mention the sports. It makes people want to live right in the middle of the city. Although this is understandable, living just outside in an area like Revere, is something to consider as well. When you leave the city limits, you can gain other things. More space per square footage at a more reasonable monthly rent is a big bonus. Just a few miles outside of the city, an area like Revere offers something that the city cannot in most locations – an oceanfront apartment with amazing views. Although not perfect for every renter, many will find the setting beautiful and serene. And still close to the city, the airport and located near public transit. When looking for your next place, make sure you are broadening the scope of your search.
You would think living in Singapore would make it easy to get around. It isn’t and that is why I looked into Seaside Residences at the suggestion of my boss after I arrived at work late once again due to my current living arrangements. I live in an isolated area of the city, isolated being a relative term here, but I don’t have a lot of quick transportation options. I have to walk a considerable distance to catch a bus and then switch buses a few times to get to work. If I miss one bus, I’m always late.
The boss suggested I move into a place that is not only nice, but located much closer to work. (more…)
