Cost Segregation Study Results
Cost Segregation is a viable cash flow enhancing tool regardless of location, but can be particularly valuable in the Boston, MA area. Greater Boston has a population approaching 5,000,000, is one of the oldest cities in the U.S. (established in 1630), and is an international center of higher education. All of the above creates great demand for housing and all supporting infrastructure.
Boston’s higher education facilities exert a significant impact on the regional economy, attracting more than 350,000 college students from around the world, who contribute more than $4.8 billion annually to the city’s economy. The area’s schools are major employers and attract industries to the city and surrounding region, as well as providing huge housing demand.
Beyond education, the city economy hinges around tourism, finance, and publishing. Housing costs continue to escalate, contributing significantly to Boston’s position as having one of the highest cost of living indices in the U.S. Despite this, it continues to rank high on livability ratings both considering the U.S. and abroad.
