Due to the city's economy, Boston is expected to have an employment growth rate that compares with the national level. It's considered one of the best US cities in terms of job growth and stability. A real estate investor in Boston should be aware of how relatively expensive investment properties are – and this year's trend doesn't seem any different. 

For home sellers in the Boston market, the forecast shows that property sales would increase by 3.6% as against the national reduction of 2%. Within the New England Region, Boston seems like the best city to invest in real estate this year. 

Detailed below are more reasons why Boston is arguably the best city to invest in the real estate market this year. 

Attracting Millennials

Boston city is one of the cities in the world that attracts millennials. The Boston, real estate market, is vibrant with a lot of buyers offering more than the cost price to secure a property they love.

Increased Population

The city's population size has grown every year since 2004 because it attracts young people and immigrants from all over the world. The population growth is partly due to the city's good healthcare, biotech and educational jobs made available to everyone including immigrants.

Job Security

Boston is considered one of the few cities in the world that produces a large number of skilled workers from its universities – many of which specializes in fields like medicine, finance, and biotech. The constant creation of jobs would make the city retain present residents and attract more from all over. The increase in population and it’s high paying job rates has made Boston one of the best market for real estate. 

Guaranteed Appreciation

Builders, on the other hand, are cutting down prices for new properties by about 6% making it affordable for buyers. If you are an intending investor, you shouldn't pass up a deal this good.
