The kitchen is the heart of one’s home, and this two-part workshop from Boston Building Resources will cover everything you need to know to design a kitchen that fits your lifestyle. In Part 1 (September 22), we start with a basic floor plan and cover the many variables that must be considered: appliance standards, door and window openings, storage needs, budget, and more. In Part 2 (September 29), we examine cabinets and countertops—materials, styles, and price ranges. Participants may submit floor plans of their individual projects, and one will be chosen at random for examination in greater detail.

Today’s homebuyers are awash in information that can sway what is probably the biggest purchase of their lives. Especially to those new to the home search, it can be difficult to wade through sometimes-conflicting advice on home mortgages, particularly when guidelines that were generally accepted in the past may no longer apply in today’s home-buying environment. Here are four mortgage myths today’s homebuyers might encounter during their home search. You need 20 percent down to secure a loan
Following the recent mortgage crisis in the late 2000s, many housing lenders began to require at least a 20 percent down payment from buyers in order to reduce their own loan risk. Twenty percent down is still a good practice, but in expensive markets like Greater Boston, it can be extremely difficult to amass a down payment in the tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars -- especially for first-time homebuyers who do not have the ability to leverage the proceeds of a previous house sale.
Jamaica Plain real estate wasn't always the hottest neighborhood in Boston, but well-preserved (and sometimes not-so-well preserved) Victorian single-family homes could sell for more than $1 million. Lately, some condominiums are joining the million-dollar club. Take, for example, the very visible yellow house at the corner of Pond Street and the Jamaicaway. Two of the condos are currently listed for $1.875 million each, reports the Boston Herald. Statistically speaking, condo prices are rising faster than single-family home prices in the Boston area, with condo prices jumping 12.2% in JP in the first half of 2016, according to Boston.com.

Renters began moving into Olmsted Place, $84 million, 196-unit apartment building on 161A S. Huntington Ave., this past week. The Boston Globe reports that rents in the luxury building, which boasts a doorman and a pool deck, among other amenities, start at $2,600 a month for studio apartments and top $5,000 for three-bedroom units. The story also provides a South Huntington lay of the land:
"[T]he five-story complex is a big change from the Victorians and small brick multifamily buildings that make up much of Jamaica Plain’s rental stock. And it won’t be the last. Down the street at 105A South Huntington, a 195-unit building known as Serenity is set to begin construction around the end of the year.
