Boston apartment rents at the start of February basically unchanged from 2017

One-bedroom median $2,300

Boston was the fourth most expensive U.S. city to rent a one-bedroom apartment as of January 31 and the sixth most expensive to rent a two-bedroom.

That is according to a report from real estate listings site Zumper, which culls from information regarding new and existing apartments, making its reports solid snapshots of where the market stands.

Boston’s median one-bedroom apartment rent at the end of January/beginning of February was $2,300 a month—up 1.3 percent from a month before and 0.9 percent from the same period in 2017.

Only San Francisco, New York, and San Jose (a.k.a. Silicon Valley) were more expensive.

The two-bedroom median was $2,700 a month, flat from a month ago and up 3.4 percent from a year ago. San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Washington, and San Jose were more expensive.
