As the year winds to its terminus, we want to know: What were your worst experiences in 2016 navigating the Thunderdome that is the Greater Boston rental market?

What aggravated you the most? High rent? Inconsiderate neighbors? A horrible commute? A landlord snail-like with repairs?

Or did you have a particularly arduous hunt for an apartment?

Specifics are appreciated as your experience might help a fellow Curbed Boston reader.

After all, things are unlikely to improve given the slowdown in new-apartment construction. A dearth of decent places + perennially high demand = hair-pulling apartment searches.

Good luck out there.
