As I have stated many times before on this Boston real estate blog, look at the job market as one major (not the only) indicator on forecasting the real estate sales market. Click on the visual video below.
The total number of jobs in America fell by nearly two million over the past decade. That doesn’t bode well for real estate agents in many parts of the country. Fortunately for Boston, education and health care were one of the strongest job sectors where we actually had job growth. So maybe, I’ll have a good year selling Boston condos after all.
