Boston is not easy for a tenant whatever the recent softening in the city's rental market. Our latest Curbed Comparisons map proves the point. In just about any other larger American city, the sum of $2,500 a month would get you more than what it gets you here.
Here? It's a 3-BR perhaps, maybe a 2-BR, and definitely at least a 1-BR. But there are no frills. In many cases, there is not even laundry in-unit and forget about parking—that's often extra, if it's offered at all at $2,500/month. Forget about a new place, too. Spreads in the city's more recent developments tend to start for just above $2,500—and that's usually for a studio.
There is one silver lining in the map below. Every apartment herein is cat-friendly.
