Boston is the sixth-priciest American city for renting a two-bedroom apartment as of December 1, according to a new analysis from real estate listings site Zumper.
The analysis tracked vacant and available apartments, so it is a pretty good indicator of where the market stands.
And that market stands at No. 6 in terms of median two-bedroom apartment rents. Boston’s is $2,690 a month—behind San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Washington, and San Jose.
As for one-bedroom median rents, Boston is No. 5 with $2,250 a month, behind all of the aforementioned cities except Los Angeles. More details through here.
It really does look like Boston apartment rents are plateauing—and may finally start to drop in the new year. What’re you seeing in your own renewal notices and apartment hunts?
