In his famous work, The Republic, whose title in Greek is “Politeia”, Socrates ruminates about the four virtues of a “just city”: wisdom, courage, moderation and justice. Today, in Boston we have many of these characteristics, and I feel we’re improving each year.

However, at some point to be a truly “just city” we need to address one of the biggest issues that our residents are facing – which is the housing crisis.

Housing prices are skyrocketing, forcing many to spend more than half of their incomes on rent or mortgages. 

The median listing price for Boston-area homes is $500,000.  If you want to rent, it’s going to cost $2,200 a month on average. 

Those prices continue to increase by two to three percent each year.
