It’s almost September 1st and you know what that means – it’s Moving Day in the neighborhood! The coming week promises lots of double-parked cars and moving vans, “no parking” moving permits (which residents will ignore), and trash galore!
You know what they say, “one man’s trash is another’s treasure.” Maybe you’re in the market for a pre-owned couch, a broken vacuum cleaner or maybe a “Live, Love, Laugh” sign. This day brings out the inner hoarder in all of and makes us pass a pile of garbage and think, “Hmmm…maybe I could use that?”
According to the real estate website RentHop, South Boston has the highest rate of moving permits issued in the City of Boston -more than Allston and Brighton.
