Here's How Much Cambridge Rents Can Spike

New, 3 comments

We continue our look into the real apartment rents of Cambridge, thanks to submissions from you, dear reader. (Haven't sent? Do it now! Anonymity guaranteed.) The latest story comes from a reader sharing a split-level house with two roommates. The house is a few blocks south of Massachusetts Avenue, toward the Charles River and outside of Central Square.

Here's what's happening:

The house has 3 floors (finished basement, first, and second) with 3 bedrooms upstairs (two considerably smaller than the other one) and an additional bedroom/office in the basement. There is a washer dryer in the unit along with a dishwasher and a small back deck and private front patio. No parking included and no heat/electricity included. House is in decent shape but could definitely use some love & updates.
In 2012 we paid $2,500.
In 2013 we are paying $2,800.

Scared to think about 2014 and prices going up again! Indeed.
