Worcester and the entire Central Massachusetts area — essentially coinciding with Worcester county — is the second-most populous county in Massachusetts. Developments in the biotechnology and high-tech industries, the healthcare industry, pharmaceuticals and manufacturing highlight those areas of greatest recent economic growth. Furthermore, many new sectors are rapidly emerging as centers of business activity, including fiber optics and electronics. In general, the region’s workforce is highly educated, skilled and well-trained.

As the real estate market continues to strengthen in Central Massachusetts, property listings for a myriad of end uses continually increase — providing the potential owner/leasee with a wide variety of opportunities. Property types include everything from business to church, flex, garage, IND/MFG/WHSE, investment/development, land, medical/life science, multi-family, office and retail.
