I'm looking to buy a condo in or around boston. I'm just wondering where to look where the prices are affordable, however the land is possibly oing to appreciate in the next few years. Any help would be great.

In this market you should readjust your expectations. If you can hold onto the property for 5+ years, you should be fine when it comes to equity. Anywhere around Boston will yield the most appreciation. T accessibility and convenience are pretty high on the list. Check parts of Somerville. Cambridge and Boston will still be too expensive...

Real estate values around here haven't been doing so well, so if you buy you may have to wait around for quite a few years. It will be interesting to see in 5-10 years what happens in MA when the baby boomers start retiring and the fact the state is losing people every year.
