Boston condos are growing in popularity

Boston, MA. is quickly becoming the next cool city to live on the East Coast. Presently, it’s facing an influx of migration from all over the country. In general, Boston is a good-size city that is known for its beer, sports teams, and quality of life. Downtown Boston has amazing entertainment with plenty of restaurants, bars, and opportunities to watch sports games live (Patriots & Boston Red Sox).

Another big reason that we’re attracting out of state residents to move here is the booming economy with high paying jobs. We have people moving in from NYC, NJ, Washington D.C., and also from the West Coast. Although this is good, it has created an increasing price tag on Boston condos for sale in 2019.  

Even New York Yankee fans are moving here

I wonder just how much influence our sports teams have on the national level, which resulted in people moving to Boston?  

Whatever your reason may be for wanting to move to downtown Boston, securing housing in this competitive market seems to be the most difficult obstacle. Boston condos for sale and Boston condo rental prices are also increasing dramatically due to the high demand. The Boston condos for sale demand, is not as crazy as in the past, which actually creates a good opportunity for first time home buyers.

What does Boston condo market look like in 2019?  

I  continue to see a healthy growth of demand in the area for housing, especially by millennial’s that are abundant in this cool city of Boston.
