Boston rent comparison: What $3,000/month gets you right now

Including in Roxbury, Back Bay, and Eastie

Boston is one of the few U.S. cities where $3,000 a month in rent is not all that astronomical.

Our latest Curbed Comparisons looks at what that sum rents as we move further into 2017.


We start in the Dudley Square area of Roxbury, where the 1,400-square-foot, 3-BR, 1.5-BA townhouse at 9 Saint James Street is asking $3,100 a month. It is the product of a gut-rehab last year and includes W/D as well as a patio.

Out in Eastie’s Jeffries Point area is Unit 2A at 189 Everett Street. This townhouse-style unit is $3,000 even a month. It includes four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms; and laundry in the building comes free with the rent.

In Southie, at West Third and B streets is yet another townhouse for rent—this one for $3,000, too. It’s 1,009 square feet; and has two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. There is a W/D in-unit.

Now to Back Bay, where surely location accounts for the $3,000 asking rent for this 605-square-foot 1-BR, 1-BA at 338 Beacon Street. Unit 3 does not come with laundry, but it is in the building.

We end in Charlestown, where a condo at 5 Franklin Street is asking $3,000. The 1,555-square-foot spread has two bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a W/D in-unit.
