The median rent for a two-bedroom apartment in Boston was up 1.9 percent from May to June, to $2,750 a month, according to an analysis of vacant and available apartments.

The analysis—which real estate listings site Zumper oversaw—also concluded that the two-bedroom median had risen a heftier 5.8 percent annually.

The median for a one-bedroom was essentially flat month to month at $2,300, though it was up year over year 4.5 percent.

Both sums, of course, place Boston squarely among the five most expensive U.S. cities for renting a one- or a two-bedroom apartment, right up there with New York, San Francisco, San Jose, and Los Angeles.

It is a familiar position that a raft of conditions maintains. Here are some of those conditions.
