Massachusetts is one of the quintessential New England states, rich in both culture and history. The vast majority of rental properties are centralized in Middlesex, Norfolk, and Suffolk Counties, which make up the Greater Boston region. Typically, housing options range between two- to four-bedroom townhouses and colonials. There is a healthy mix of new and old construction throughout the rental market.

There are seven unofficial demographic regions in this small New England state: Northeast, Southeast, Greater Boston, Central, Pioneer Valley, Berkshire, and the Cape. The largest of the group, the Greater Boston region is home to the historic city of Boston, and is the economic and cultural hub of Massachusetts. Cape Cod, or "the Cape," as it's known, famous for its sandy New England beaches and quaint towns, is home to seasonal and permanent residents alike. Pioneer Valley is a mostly forested, rural area. The region does host a number of prestigious liberal arts colleges, including Mount Holyoke, Smith and Amherst. Central Massachusetts is home to Worcester, which has become a leader in the biotechnology and healthcare industries, largely due to its proximity to UMass. Finally, the Berkshire region, located on the western edge of the state, is a largely rural region, but has a thriving tourist industry.
