Latest Zumper report shows Cambridge, Brookline, and Boston still region’s priciest for renting


Median one-bedroom apartment rents in Medford, Quincy, Waltham, Lowell, Framingham, Fall River, and Worcester are up by double-digit percentages for July compared with the same month in 2017, according to real estate listings site Zumper.

Two-bedroom medians are up annually by double-digit percentages in Medford, Haverhill, and Fall River, according to the same report. Zumper’s reports track vacant and available apartments, so they are pretty good snapshots of where the market stands.

To absolutely no one’s surprise (we hope), rents in general in the Boston region have stayed rather steady this summer compared with earlier in 2018 and during the same period in 2017. Increases in various towns and cities far outpace the sizes of most dips.

And Cambridge, Brookline, and Boston proper remain the region’s priciest municipalities in which to rent either a one- or a two-bedroom apartment. Check out the further breakdown:
