What $2,000 a Month Rents You in Boston's Dorchester

New, 3 comments

Dorchester, Boston's biggest neighborhood by area, cannot escape the Thunderdome of cartoonishly low supply and insatiably high demand that is Boston's wider apartment market (however softer that market is becoming re: tenants). Still, a dollar appears to go further in Dot than in other neighborhoods. In fact, the magic number of $2K a month looks to get you at least two bedrooms, if not three. And they're real bedrooms, too! None of that converted-alcove crap.

Case in point: Unit 1 at 46 Sawyer Avenue (pictured above). Its 1,000 square feet include three "equal-sized bedrooms," according to the listing. There's also one bathroom; a deck; and laundry in the basement.


The 3-BR, 1-BA Unit 2 at 113 Lonsdale Street touts its location in Dot's Neponset section. It's 1,170 square feet and comes with a W/D in-unit.

Unit 3 at 106 Hancock Street just hit the rental market. It's a 2-BR, 1-BA spread over 1,155 square feet and comes with a separate entrance for a home office. There's also attic storage.

The 2-BR, 1-BA Unit 2 at 97 Cushing Avenue in Jones Hill touts itself as being "condo quality." Its 1,200 square feet are certainly shiny. It comes with W/D hookups.

Unit 3 at 68 Moseley Street in Savin Hill is a newish 2-BR, 1-BA condo up for grabs. It's only 720 square feet, but comes with W/D hookups and central air and heat. And it's this close to the JFK/UMass Red Line stop.
