Boston rent comparison: What $3,000 a month rents right now

Including in Southie, the North End, and Charlestown

In Boston, $3,000 a month is not that much in rent—though nationally it can be quite the hefty sum. What does it command right now around the city? Our latest Curbed Comparisons finds out.


↑ We start in Charlestown, at Unit 2 at 314 Bunker Hill Street, a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment with a private back deck.

The 1,128-square-foot spread includes private storage and a washer-dryer hookup as well.

↑ There is a 422-square-foot studio for rent for $3,000 in the full-service InterContinental at 500 Atlantic Avenue on the waterfront.

That full service for Unit 14V includes a 24-hour concierge.

↑ Now to South Boston, where Unit 1 at 73 Farragut Street near Castle Island is on the market.

The two-bedroom, one-bathroom runs to 1,250 square feet. The rent includes in-unit laundry and a private porch.

↑ In Jamaica Plain, Unit 2 at 98 Paul Gore Street comes with three bedrooms, one bathroom, and in-unit laundry.

The kitchen appliances are new.

↑ We end in Brighton, with Unit 1 at 15 Wallingford Street. It’s a 1,700-square-foot three-bedroom, one-bathroom on two levels.

The rent includes a W/D and an off-street parking space.
