Where to rent in Boston right now, mapped

View as Map

The busiest rental season of the year is almost upon us as tenants throughout the region receive renewal notices from their landlords and gazillions of local collegians prepare to graduate in the spring.

To aid in the coming apartment hunt, here are 19 complexes with at least several vacancies each. This map also provides a handy snapshot of what to expect rent-wise.

If you know of other complexes/buildings with significant vacancies (more than three or four, let's say), get at us in the comments section below. We want to make this as comprehensive as possible as spring rolls toward us.
