Steven Bock thought he was a typical downsizing baby boomer. With his second child graduating from college, he and his wife felt it was time to put their 7,000 square foot, multimillion dollar, suburban Boston home on the market and head into the city to rent. What they found changed the plan entirely.
"We were looking in town, and the properties we were looking at, in the size range we wanted to rent, were extremely expensive. A couple thousand square feet is not really tax efficient, and what were we going to do with all our stuff?" said Bock.
So they turned their sights back to the Boston 'burbs, this time in search of a single-family home for rent.
