A recent surge in new residential construction development has begun largely in part to the recent opening of the new train station in Brighton known as Boston Landing. Allston & Brighton are two Boston neighborhoods long underserved by public transportation, now they are some of the most accessible in the city, being only two stops from some of Boston's most popular destinations such as Fenway Park, Copley Square and the Financial District.

According to a recent article by Inman News’ real estate update, homeownership reached an all-time high at the peak of the housing surge, with 69.2 percent of the country owning a home. That high has since declined to less than 67 percent, or about 3 million homes that are now rental properties. In addition to this increase in available rental properties, vacancy rates for rentals have also declined, from a rate of 8 percent in 2010 to a rate of 6.2 percent just a
