Buying a home is one of life’s great milestones. Whether you’re looking to buy a single-family home, a condo, or a multi-family home for sale in Boston, the decision to purchase real estate is a big one. Keep in mind, while the price tag might be smaller on a condo or single-family, multi-family homes might cost you less out of pocket each month.
If you’re not sure how you want to move forward in your property ownership journey, you need to talk to professionals. A mortgage specialist will be able to help you figure out how much you can afford to purchase. They can also guide you if there are any steps you need to take before you qualify for a mortgage. A real estate professional specializing in Boston rentals and investment sales will be your best resource if you are considering purchasing a multi-family. It’s important to work with someone that can help you accurately price your rental unit(s) to maximize the return on your multi-family investment.

In real estate, everyone knows that location is everything. This two-family offers you the rare opportunity to balance access to nature and city life. At just a stone’s throw from the beach, you can be one of the lucky few to live near a private beach and yacht club, while being only minutes away from the city-life that Boston offers. This two-family (with a total living area of 2,464 SQ FT) allows you to occupy one of the units, while renting out the other. This allows you to generate passive income and reduce your monthly mortgage payment. Should you decide to rent the second unit, you won’t need to worry about limited parking because this property provides three parking spaces.
