From the Boston Herald:

Boston-area rents, already beginning to soften slightly, likely will drop more as the coronavirus crisis wears on, experts say — especially as September approaches with likely far fewer college students looking to live in Boston.

“We’ll start to see vacancies, first appearing on that higher end, and then it eventually will hit the middle of the market,” Skylar Olsen, senior principal economist at the nationwide rental website Zillow, told the Herald. “And there’s extra reason to believe that rents will go soft in college towns like Boston.”

Colleges continue to grapple with the decision of whether to bring in-person classes back for the fall semester — and even if some do, experts have said, enrollment is likely to drop, meaning fewer students would be around.
