If you will be relocating to Massachusetts, or simply looking for a Boston, MA Rental- please note, as in the previous 2 years, the percentage of available units will be extremely low for 2013 as well.
The reason? After speaking with many people, I have discovered that many former homeowners are now renting since 2008, when the real estate market really took a huge hit!
Another reason, people are staying put!
Boston, MA Rentals- Extremely Low! again for 2013!
Good News: If you know you are going to need housing in Boston, MA, I strongly suggest you start your search now! If you are planning on hiring an agent to assist you, speak with a few agents, when you find that "connection", I suggest sticking with that agent, it can be tedious when speaking with many agents. Sometimes the real estate agent gets the bad rap, however, will go to bat for you all the way and make your life easier and stress free!
Keep in mind, Boston, MA Rentas- Extremely low!
