Key change as Boston rents head down

For the first time in six years, rents in Boston have fallen as housing supply starts to catch up to demand. In the fourth quarter of 2016, the average monthly rent for an apartment in Boston fell 1.7 percent, marking the first time rents have dropped since 2010. The Boston Herald has more on the new report that still has yet to ascertain whether the drop in prices is spread throughout the market or the most expensive apartments.
