Our pals at real estate search engine Zumper are out with their latest map of median 1-BR apartment rents around the region based on listings active during June. As you can see the D Street-West Broadway corridor in South Boston leads the way with a median of $3,120, followed closely by MIT (a.k.a. the Kendall Square area) at $3,090 and downtown Boston at $3,065.
Nationally, Boston per usual ranked behind the San Francisco and New York areas in terms of median 1-BR rents. Take heart: San Jose is gaining fast.
