While Cambridge is technically outside of the City of Boston, data trends in the housing market and in particular the rental market in Cambridge closely mirror that of Boston.  Both are highly cyclical markets that depend heavily on apartment turnover from the local student population.  So while Boston’s rental market is reeling due to inventory spikes, it should come as no surprise that the same supply issues are occurring in Cambridge.Cambridge may be best known as the home of two famous universities:  Harvard and MIT.  Like most of the area’s Universities, both adopted remote learning for the 2020-2021 school year, severely hampering the influx of students we normally see in September.   As a result, the real estate market in Cambridge has experienced quite a bit of fluctuation in te...

 What is more fun than working with my long term clients to purchase this stunning investment condo in Cambridge?  Not sure!  We had a blast and it was wonderful to work with the Ivy Team again while roaming through my old stomping grounds!  The Glass Factory in Cambridge has a rich history and is right across the street from the Science Museum!

Cambridge 1 and 2 bedroom condos continued their upward climb from a strong 2013 in the first quarter of 2014.  With high buyer demand and low interest rates I expect this trend to continue through 2014 and into 2015.

LIFE IS A WORK IN PROGRESS Life is like a drama. Each scene emerges bringing us joy or sorrow and then… it vanishes and we find ourselves in the next scene!!! We embrace the scenes that make us happy and often times resist those that bring us sorrow or pain. In this program we will explore the state of consciousness we need to achieve to find the strength to face the different scenes that come our way.

First-time buyers looking across the river from Boston to Cambridge didn't see much price relief over the past 6 years. Looking back in the January 1, 2007 - March 1, 2007 timeframe we saw that the average sale price of one bedroom condos was $363K. Fast forward to 2013 and add 20% and that is where you find the average one bedroom condo in 2013 - priced at $436K. Given high demand and low interest rates we are definitely going to see a very competitive market in the Spring 2013 time-frame. Make sure you are working with a buyer agent, like Buyer Agents of Boston, that is versed in competitive and multiple bid situations.
