Multifamily Market Forecast for Boston:

The Boston apartment market experienced the strongest quarterly demand since the third quarter of 2019. Quarterly demand reached over 2,100 units, compared to 2020’s average of 340 units. The Boston labor market made a resurgence, adding 53,000 net jobs this quarter compared to less than 14,000 net jobs added the prior quarter. Part of the recent hires came as life sciences REIT IQHQ Inc. began construction on their $1 billion Fenway Center campus. The project is expected to generate roughly $3 billion in economic impact over the nearly 100-year lease term, creating thousands of new jobs and generating more than $15 million in tax revenue each year for Boston. The labor market was not the only factor that contributed to stronger demand; single-family home prices hovered around $600,000, and annual new apartment supply registered above the 2020 average. Metro effective rent has been on a downward trajectory since the second quarter of 2020 as operators face increased competition as nearly 9,000 units came online. Metro occupancy continued to hover around 95% as leasing activity was positive in the last year.

Boston Multifamily absorbtion is strong:

The Boston market experienced strong Multifamily expansion in 2020 inspite of the Pandemic.   The market absorbed the new delivers as evidenced by an overall market occupancy of 95.1%.  The unemployment for the first quarter of 2021 came in at 6.10% this is up from the first quarter of 2020 of 2.6%.  Overall population grew by 1/2 of a percent.

Demand for Multifamily properties slipped slightly in 2021 from 2020:

Apartment construction peaked in 2020, reflecting developers’ strong confidence in the Boston multifamily market. Apartment builders brought over 9,700 units online last year, an annual increase of 64%. Deliveries outpaced leasing activity resulting in occupancy falling 90 basis points annually to 95.7% in December 2020. Simultaneously, effective rent lowered 5.0% to $2,279 due in part to increases in monthly concessions by apartment operators. The rapid pace of rehiring and job creation following the loss of 572,000 jobs that occurred between February and May due to the pandemic lockdown inspires hope for the future. By the end of 2020, Boston employers recovered 39% of lost payrolls. This swift pace of recovery is needed as developers are scheduled to bring another 8,100 apartment units online over the next 12 months. A major surge in multifamily demand is expected in 2021 once COVID-19 is under control and daily life in Boston returns to normal.

Apartment Summary for the Boston Metro:

Occupancy 95.4%, average Effective Rent $2,268 down 1/2 percent from 2020.  Average price per unit $313,677 in 2019, $313,144 for 2020.  Cap Rates witnessed soem compresion from 5.15% in 2019 to 5.0% in 2020.
