The Best Places in the Hub to Find an Apartment

We told you last week where to find the cheapest and priciest apartments in the Hub and we warned you to get into East Boston while the getting is still relatively inexpensive. Now, with help from RentJuice, here are the top 10 Hub neighborhoods by percentage of apartments available in a certain time period (we assume you're not moving next week, so we started in February).

February 1 - 14
10) Waltham: 29.8 percent of apartments have indicated availability during this period
9) Belmont: 30
8) Arlington: 31
7) West End: 31.1
6) West Roxbury: 33.3
5) Somerville: 34.4
4) Watertown: 35
3) South Brookline: 35
2) Riverside: 37.5
1) Hyde Park: 50

March 1 - 14
10) Newton: 6.7 percent
9) Harvard Square: 6.7 (tie)
8) Cambridge: 7.4
7) Quincy: 7.5
6) Auburndale: 9.1
5) Beacon Hill: 10.5
4) Oak Square: 12
3) Arlington: 12.5
2) South Brookline: 15
1) Kendall Square: 18.6

If none of these work for you, wait until early April. According to RentJuice, as many as 8 in 10 apartments in most neighborhoods open up.
