Boston Rent Comparison: What You Get for $2,500/Month

New, 6 comments

Welcome to another edition of Curbed Comparisons, where we look at how far a certain amount goes in a particular real estate market right now. In this latest go-round, we look at $2,500 a month on the nose in Boston, where rents have continued to rise despite a phenomenal amount of apartment construction. The amount appears to command decent digs, though size varies greatly depending on location. Our first stop is Belgrade Place, the nearly four-year-old complex on West Roxbury's Belgrade Avenue. There, Unit 304 offers two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 908 square feet. It also comes with a W/D and a garaged parking space.

Next up is Unit 4 in Back Bay's 404 Marlborough Street. That 1-BR, 1-BA is a mere 504 square feet and does not include a W/D (though there's laundry in the building). Tantalizingly enough, the listing says a parking space may or may not be available. Inquire within.

Now it's on to Dorchester's 14 Edison Green. Unit 1 there is a 3-BR, 1-BA spread over 1,200 square feet and coming with a W/D as well as access to a back yard.

Unit 2 at 20 Sachem Street in Mission Hill runs to a roomy 1,200 square feet, and comes with two bedrooms and one bathroom. There's laundry in the building and a private deck out back. There's also central air, which will feel good in about three months.

We end our latest Curbed Comparisons in Jamaica Plain, at 11 Sedgwick Road. Unit 3R there is 810 square feet; and, according to the listing, it's technically a 2-BR, but most tenants use it as a 1-BR. Your choice. The spread comes with in-unit laundry and a private deck.
