Are you planning on leaving the Boston area soon?

New, 3 comments

Why? Sound off.


It’s that time of year: When thousands upon thousands of students graduate from the Boston area’s dozens upon dozens of colleges and universities.

It’s also that time of year when a lot of apartment leases are up, and tenants either squeeze their stress balls and re-up at an inevitably higher rent or wade into the choking morass of the region’s rental market.

Both of the above also lead to another springtime/early summer phenomenon: A sizable exit of Boston-area residents. Are you among them? Is the rent why you’re leaving? Is there another reason unrelated to leases or to matriculation?

Sound off in the comments section below, or on Twitter or Facebook. Yes, demand to live here runs perennially strong; but, given the costs and the commutes and the weather, people are always looking for outs. Right?
