Boston, MA Rental Market Overview

Vacancy Rate Levels Off at 3.5% as Construction Increases in Boston
It's a great time to be a rental property owner in Boston right now. Beantown was only one of three East Coast metropolitan cities to place in the top ten rental markets out of 44 featured in the Marcus & Millichap 2013 National Apartment Report (NAR). Boston ranked ninth, falling behind New York City (#1) and Northern New Jersey (#8). With the exception of Minneapolis-St. Paul, all of the other top-ranked rental markets were located on the West Coast. The 2012 NAR ranked Boston fourth in their index, but the five-place slide had more to do with stronger rental market performance in other places than any changes in Boston's economy. The report noted that Boston's rental property owners continue to enjoy some of the tightest rental economy conditions ever recorded. More than 11,000 new apartment units are expected in the area over the next few years, but rents and rental demand around the urban core support the new construction. 4,600 units were completed in 2013, the largest total on the market since 2009. This could be one reason why the metro vacancy rate increased 10 basis points to 3.5%, but the vacancy rate remains below the national average of 4.1%.

Find Your Niche in a Thriving Rental Market
As with most hot markets, Class A luxury units continue to command the most interest among renters and institutional buyers, especially in the Back Bay/ Beacon Hill markets. The 2013 NAR predicts that the hottest properties will remain Class A units in the urban core or well-placed suburban properties situated near commuter rail stations. Anticipated future markets include suburbs in Essex and Middlesex counties, especially as the economy continues to surge forward. Some of these suburban locations may offer attractive entry points for small landlords and individual investors, although anticipating tenant demand can be challenging the further you search beyond the metro core. That's one reason why many independent rental property owners consult with local property managers prior to making significant changes to their rental property portfolios. A significant number of Boston property management companies employ real estate professionals who work firsthand with tenants and landlords throughout the region. These experts can offer insights and observations that surpass institutional executive summaries in detail and thoroughness.

BOSTON, MA

Q1 2015 Rental Ranking Report

In 2009, a Boston resident paid $300,000 for a parking spot. Four years later and a few blocks away, another resident purchased side-by-side spots for $560,000. When a city's affluent residents pay more for a parking spot than the vast majority of the world pays for their homes, it's safe to say that city is a very expensive place to live.

What makes Boston such a magnet for so many people willing to pay more for everything? That's easy. The Boston metropolitan area's dozens of universities and colleges provide its massive 363 billion dollar economy, the sixth largest in the U.S., with talented and well-educated workers to fill the many available jobs.

Housing all these people is Boston's biggest challenge right now. The Greater Boston Housing Report Card, prepared by the Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy at Northeastern University, finds that Boston is currently facing a serious housing shortage. As we know, shortages, in the face of strong demand, cause prices to rise. It's safe to say that the owners of rental housing are making a killing in Beantown.

The authors of the Dukakis Center's housing report state that, since 2009, Boston rents have increased a whopping 15.4 percent and that "unless the supply of rental units in Greater Boston is large enough to drive the vacancy rate to 5.50 percent or higher, effective rents will continue to increase."

Given how strong demand for Boston rental housing is, you shouldn't be surprised to learn that the Q1 2015 Rental Ranking Report found it to be the second-best market for rental real estate investors in the Northeastern U.S. (one place ahead of regional rival New York City) and 23rd-best in the country as a whole. Boston's extremely low vacancy rate of just 4.10 percent is the 12th lowest in the U.S. and almost half the national average. Our Future Rental Availability Index predicts that Boston's housing shortages won't end anytime soon, either; we estimate that close to 30,000 more rental units will be needed in the Boston metropolitan area in the coming year.

Boston's year-over-year property value appreciation of almost six percent should raise eyebrows, as that degree of appreciation is impressive for such an expensive housing market. While year-over-year job growth was just 1.16 percent, one of the lowest job gains in the U.S. during that time frame, our Job Availability Index shows that future job growth will be more impressive; Boston ranks ninth-best in the U.S. for this metric in the Q1 2015 Rental Ranking Report.

What data is this Rental Ranking Report based on?

To calculate the statistics found in the Q1 2015 Rental Ranking Report, All Property Management gathered data, including the most recent government housing and jobs data, for 75 metros across the United States. Specifically, we looked at home vacancy, capitalization, home value appreciation and job growth rates, changes in rental prices, and the median number of days properties have been on the market to determine which U.S. metros will give investors the highest returns on rental investments.

Should I invest in Boston rental property?

While Boston's modest rental capitalization rate of 6.25 percent is slightly below the national average, its strong economy and massive, perennially-replenishing population of student renters means that owning rental property there will likely always net healthy returns. Owning Boston rental property is all the more attractive when you factor in recent property value appreciation rates.
