Checked with family. 52 Cornell St. SIL says sq footage is the driving factor on Cornell St so pay attention to that.

Thank you! Just verified the sq. footage today. 1st level and 2nd level together comes to 2359 sq. ft. Basement (unfinished) is not included in the calculation. Approximately 319.9/sq.ft. It also has a decent yard.

There is cafes and a smaller grocery. West rox is close with 2 larger grocery and even more dining and take out spots. Cinema..not so much. chestnut hill may be the closest.

If ROI is your main concern than I guess you really have different motives than finding a nice place to live with your family. It shouldn't be your main concern.

I can't speak much about the current state of Medford, and hope someone can chime in with better info on that.
GeePee, thank you! Considering this will be the biggest purchase in my life, I do not want to loose money if I decide to sell it in 7 to 10 years. Likely I will be adding features to the house in the years I own it. So, at the end, I just wanted to have a decent exit plan, if need be.

I don't think you will lose money. I had the same exact fears before I bought, as i am sure most do. I have a decent amount of equity in less than 10 years. Your growth may not be as aggressive as the past 10 years have been, but I don't think you will be losing. There are significant investments in and around the neighborhood that are promising for it to not be a flash in the pan situation. Best of luck. It's a great neighborhood.

No one on this board can predict your roi, best you can do is for your realtor to provide comps at $750k.

The area appears to be full of people. Are they all pissed because they're not living next to bars? It's a residential area. If you want to live downtown...
