The median one-bedroom apartment rent in Boston was $2,200 a month at the end of October, making the city once again the fifth-priciest U.S. market for such an abode, according to real estate listings site Zumper.
It finished behind San Francisco, New York, San Jose, and Washington.
The analysis culled from active listings as of the end of October, so it’s a pretty good snapshot of where the overall market is right now.
Boston’s median two-bedroom apartment rent was $2,610 a month—the sixth-priciest in the nation behind those earlier four cities, plus Los Angeles.
Both Boston’s one-bedroom and two-bedroom medians were flat from September, according to Zumper, and relatively unchanged from the same time in 2016. No wonder the city’s consistently high rents represent one of its scariest real estate trends.
