Spring is Near!

What’s going on behind the doors for the Spring Real Estate Market?

While there’s still snow on the ground, we’re starting to think the groundhog was wrong. With a beautiful weekend in the 50’s to look forward to – as well as an onslaught of new listings for March 1st, a lively spring seems to be just around the corner!

Rentals

Blackstone Williams releases all of its exclusive inventory in early March. We expect to have about 60 studio apartments in some of Boston’s hottest neighborhoods, like the Back Bay, Beacon Hill and Fenway, as well as one, two, and three bedroom listings in the Back Bay and Fenway.

These annual leases fill up quickly! Be among the first to get access to our exclusive listings by adding your name to our 2017 Wait List.

While short term rentals continue to be in short supply, Blackstone offers summer leases (generally mid-May/June 1st through August 31st) as well as even short term listings by working with Airbnb.

You can stay with us short term in:

Beacon Hill
Newbury Street
Fenway

Sales

We expect supply to remain low with buyers still in high demand. First time home buyers will continue to rent while they continue or delay their search for their starter home. Multiple offer situations will most likely remain common, especially in Boston proper.

While winter months are traditionally slower, many sellers were surprised to see their listings move in a matter of days – or less, often with multiple offers. All signs point to a very active spring sales market, again favoring sellers as sellers remain in short supply.

If you’re thinking of selling your home, there’s no better time than now!

If you’re thinking of buying, especially your first home, the road may be long and hard, but our experts are here to help! We’ve helped first time buyers lock down their first homes over the past two years, persevering through a tough market for buyers.

The weather’s looking better – there’s no better time to rent, buy, & sell in Boston!
