The median rent for a market-rate one-bedroom apartment in Boston increased 4.3 percent annually in March, to $2,400 a month, and the median for a two-bedroom increased 1.9 percent, to $2,750, according to a new report from real estate listings site Zumper.
The report tracked vacant and available apartments, so it’s a pretty good snapshot of the market going into April.
And the meta-takeaway is that Boston remains one of the most expensive big U.S. cities for renting—up there only with San Francisco, New York, San Jose, Los Angeles, and maybe a couple of others.
Perhaps the only good news for tenants and prospective tenants is that the medians were unchanged from the month before. What’re you see in the apartment market?
