Very healthy employment growth and a significant increase in deliveries that has made more units available to lease are factors that point to the potential for strong apartment demand in Boston. However, the metro tends to exhibit a very pronounced seasonal pattern in its leasing activity, with very few apartments absorbed during the winter months of Q1. You might think that would be especially true this year, since Q1 2015 brought record snowfall when the metro was hit with storm after storm after storm. Thus, Boston is the real shocker on the demand leaders list, holding the #3 position with 4,645 units absorbed in the January to March period.
