Boston Apartments with Price Tags Equal to the Pats Super Bowl Bonuses

Could the Boston housing market be out of even the Patriot’s bonus budget margins? The New England Patriots’ potential per-player payout of $165,000 for winning the super bowl will suffice just one years worth of rent for some of Boston proper’s swanky spreads. Divided by 12 months, rent can equate to $13,750 per month, which is assuming that Pat’s members have enough capital saved to cover security deposits. Pretty mind-boggling when you put it in to a context, huh?

we enter into the New Year, real estate connoisseurs can’t help but wonder what 2015 will bring to the Boston real estate world.

There are predictions that this year will be one of major changes, and with developments such as the Fenway Center mega-project, Harbor Garage and Residences at the Malden Station all coming to fruition, one cannot doubt this projection.

Be sure to keep an eye on these developments.

The “New” New York keeps booming folks – what an exciting year ahead!

Fenway Center Shows Life

With recent news of developers’ dual partnership, the long awaited Fenway Center at Brookline and Commonwealth development might actually come to fruition.

The construction of this apartment-and-retail development has been stagnant due to insufficient funds. But all is about to change due to newly conjoined partners taking forces and funding the $550 million dollar complex. Thank you to developers John Rosenthal and Gerding Edlen for teaming up to make this happen.

Stay tuned for further updates.

Luxury Condos in Fenway Redirect Attention to Area

Although the South End is experiencing a “constructionpalooza”, it looks like Fenway is giving the neighborhood a run for its money.  Based on rising condo prices in the area, the Fenway could be Boston’s next ‘it’ neighborhood.

From the Boston Business Journal:

“Fenway is the hottest neighborhood in Boston outside of the Seaport District and South Boston,” said [Collin Bray, a broker at Century 21 Cityside who is listing a 1,084-square-foot, two-bedroom unit on Miner Street for $774,900]. “If you walk down Boylston Street, there are three major luxury apartment projects with commercial space on the ground level under construction. The buyers see the Fenway as the next ‘it’ neighborhood and it’s booming.”
