Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

Huh? If one has the means to buy a condo in Boston then one clearly has access to the US financial system. You're way better off stashing cash in, say, any broad-based ETF than you are in an empty...

Re: Innovation Dist. / South Boston Seaport

An "investment property" that you pay condo fees and property tax on while leaving empty is a pretty crappy investment. Typically "investment properties" are rented out, in which case people still...

Re: NEMA Boston | 399 Congress St. | Seaport
