Is the City Right for You?

There is no denying this is an exciting time to be in Boston. More and more suburban homeowners are transitioning to the city as they approach retirement. For the Boomer Generation, retirement looks different than it did for their parents. Not content to settle for the shuffleboard court, this generation is on the move!

Boston offers a variety of neighborhoods to suit all tastes. From the stately brownstones and high rise towers in the Back Bay, to the open markets and fine dining in the South End, and onto the open ocean and trendy hot spots in South Boston, the city embraces everyone.

While easy access to restaurants, theater, art galleries, comedy clubs,  sporting    events and shopping attracts many Boomers, part of the allure of city living is also the simplicity of life. Transportation gets easier, as everything you could need or want is within steps, or a quick Uber ride away. You no longer have to worry about lawn care or home maintenance.

Whether you are looking for city views or open ocean views, a high rise condo or a multi-level townhouse, Boston is the answer. If you are thinking about a future in the city, contact me today. As a Boston resident and Realtor, as well as a former suburban homeowner, I am prepared to help you realize your real estate vision for the future.
