Housing selection is one of the most important aspects of your future life in the United States. Terms of buying and renting the property in America are very different from those in the former CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) countries. After all, without knowing the geography of areas and the criminal situation, people can end up in unfavorable places, and later, lose money and time to get out of there. 

With years of experience working with real estate in Massachusetts (Broker Real Estate license), we can share with you a few tips that will help you avoid unwanted circumstances. 

Firstly, it is better to select an accommodation (a room, an apartment, a house, an office), considering the location of the future place of work (business). An important aspect is the infrastructure of the city, the level of schools, the availability of parks and recreation areas, as well as shops, laundries, restaurants, etc. One of the first indicators of a prosperous area is the percentage of the socially secure population living in it. If you have any questions regarding to the purchase or lease of housing in the United States (Massachusetts), contact us and our experts will answer your questions free

Secondly, you should estimate your financial status and physical abilities. For example, if you or your relatives have certain health problems, we can advise the most favorable states and cities in which it is better to start a “new life”. 

Considering this issue, you should not forget about the sanitary standards of premises intended for living. Cheap rental prices can hide various problems, such as mold, bedbugs, ants, squirrels, raccoons, etc. By signing a contract directly with the property owners, without visiting this housing, you risk getting the above-mentioned “charms” and it will be very difficult to get rid of in the future. Our brokers will preliminarily inspect the premises of your choice, after which you will be able to live in a cozy and comfortable housing. 

Thirdly, you should pay attention to the convenience of the transportation system in the future place of residence. America is a country of cars, but in large cities, including Boston, there is a system of well-developed public transportation. If you do not plan to buy a car immediately, then you need to measure the availability to the nearest bus or T-station. But in case if you want to buy a car right after your arrival to the U.S., you need to pay proper attention to the parking issue in advance, because in case of violations, the amount of fines can sometimes exceed the cost of renting housing. 

And finally, it should be noted that for those who do not want to rent a housing, without visiting it, we offer temporary accommodation, for which you can pay daily rent, personally choosing a future room, apartment or house.
