Boston Rental Prices Hit An All Time High

This just in!  Boston rents have hit an ll time high!!!  According to a recent article on Boston.com the average rental price for a Boston apartment has cracked the $1650/month mark and vacancy rates are at a all time low.  Back Bay apartments are now showing a average rent of 2600+ for a 2 bedroom apartment which is up almost $300 from last year.

Good News!? This is good news for Boston real estate investors interested in buy and hold real estate investments especially when you factor in the low interest rates. This is also good news for people selling Boston Multi Families as the improved cap rates are sure to drive up the price and hopefully these high rents will be the shift needed to bring the huge number of first time buyers who are still on hold of the fence.

Home Remodeling: Cost Vs. Value

Thinking of remodeling your home or condo?  One of the most common misconceptions heralded by the average homeowner is that every dollar put towards a renovation will be returned in resale value when it comes time to sell.  Sure, for a particular specific buyer, certain renovations will be priceless – but when taken in the aggregate, most homeowners should not expect to get a full return on each improvement.  Understanding how these numbers work can help you make the right decision when it comes time to prioritize your remodeling projects.  As seen in the infographic below, some of the smallest jobs (like replacing your entry door) can have the best return on investment, while some of the largest (like a full kitchen overhaul) have a lesser return.  Obviously, improvements are necessary over time to upkeep a property to the expected market standards – just don't assume that every dollar invested is a guarantee for increased sale price!

Summary of 2013 Housing Market from NAR

The NAR has recently released data which compares late 2013 housing statistics to the same months from 2012.  Though this may not include the most finalized numbers for 2013, it represents a good approximation for the year’s final tallies.  As we reflect on 2013, and as seen in the infographic below, we see that total existing home sales are down 1.2% but median prices have remained strong, gaining 9.4%.  Inventory is back up to a more normalized 5.1 month supply and distressed sales represented 14% of all sales, down from 2012’s 22%.  Is the market leveling out a bit or will 2014 continue the gains we saw in 2013?  Discuss below and contact the Boston Realty Team experts with all your real estate questions at 617-987-4811.
