That’s the question this article from the New York times asked over the weekend. In New York the Bachelor Pad maybe dead but in Boston I’d say it’s just down with the flu. (Not everyone everyone has it, but some people do and it’s not that bad.) I certainly have quite a few clients who updated their bachelor pads this year and some that just stayed put. A couple quit the lifestyle and moved in with their girlfriend, but even then they didn’t sacrifice like those in New York. The Clarendon, one of the most expensive rental buildings in Back Bay is currently out of 1 bed units and my guess is quite a few of those have been rented by single men. Still, I’ll put question out there, Bachelors of Boston are you downsizing this year?
