2019 Cambridge Apartment Real Time Vacancy Rate and Fall forecast

Picturesque architecture and stunning state of the buildings combine with eclectic culture to make Cambridge a fantastic place to live.  The energy and optimism that Cambridge throws off can be contagious as you stop by a coffee shop and overhear people discussing the next great internet startup. Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology provide an intellectual accent, while proximity to Boston proper allows residents to enjoy a world-class art, culture, and culinary scene. Although rentals are often tough to come by in neighborhoods with major universities, this also creates a natural turnover, so finding a place to live in Cambridge may not be as hard as you think.  The key is planning.  The key is details.  Ever heard the saying if you fail to plan, plan to fail?  Getting a great place in Cambridge requires a blueprint and a systematic approach to winning.

Should I Renew the Lease or Buy a Property?

Should I renew my lease or go buy a property? This is one of the most common questions that renters ask themselves. Chances are, you find yourself agonizing over this situation at least once, but possibly many more times over the course of your life. Deciding to renew your lease is as important as deciding whether you should rent or buy. In real estate, market timing is important, but so is knowing what is a great deal, both on the renting and buying side of the equation. The last thing you need is to rack up unnecessary expenses after moving to a new pad or staying put that you later realize could have been avoided. There are just so many factors to consider. If you stay put in your current Boston Pad, you have to deal with the potential of rising rent and perhaps a sub-par landlord. If you buy at the top, what happens if the market makes a correction in a long and tired asset bull run?
