Real estate research site Zumper is out with its latest monthly rental report, which includes the Greater Boston market. The data is based on all Zumper-tracked homes either available for rent or vacant in September, so it's a decent snapshot of the rents out there. Not surprisingly, Cambridge's game-change-y Kendall Square is the most expensive area for 1-BRs, with a median of $3,460. Also perhaps not all that stunning: the Chinatown-Leather District locale in downtown Boston was the priciest for 2-BRs, with a median of $4,590. Click on the above chart to enlarge.
