In the next few months, mortgage rates are expected to go up for Boston Downtown condos, but at the current moment prices are stable and falling in many areas. Meanwhile, inventory is better than it has been in several years and some sellers are motivated to move before year-end.

Zillow researchers released a list of “best places for home buyers” this fall and Boston made the top-three, second place to be exact.
Here are some of the other reasons Boston is a prime place to buy a Boston Midtown condo.

Boston’s Economic Growth.

Have you been frustrated by throwing your money away on rent for a Boston Midtown condo rental or apartment?  With population growth is steady (not the boom it used to be) as people from around the globe move to the city with excellent access to the outdoors, opportunities in tech, healthcare and manufacturing, and an urban attitude that is both laid-back and cutting-edge.

Sellers are slashing prices.

Okay slight exaggeration, not all sellers, but some will be willing to negotiate after months with no movement. According to the most recent MLS report, the average number of days on market for a Boston condo is now on the rise.

Boston is first-time and low-income homebuyer friendly.

Need down payment assistance? ongoing mortgage assistance? Reduced interest rate? Believe it or not, all of these options are on the table for qualified homebuyers — Massachuseets has some programs to help. Whether in the city or in a surrounding community, there’s a home for just about everyone.
