Fueled by a significant increase in inventory, the Dorchester Real Estate Market is on the decline. There are now more renovated and new construction units on the market in Boston as a whole than ever before. This includes both sales and rental units. As more units have been approved and built, home buyers and renters have more choices than ever before. It is also important to note, that recent legislation has been implemented in Boston that has essentially put an end to airbnb rentals. With a need to fill their vacant rental units that were once lucrative airbnb rentals throughout the city, many landlords have resorted to incentives that include free rent for several months and $0 or reduced move in costs to lure would be buyers into attractive newly built rentals. As a result, we are seeing the beginnings of a buyers market.
