Overview of Boston

If you're a student attending Boston University, Northeastern, MIT, Harvard or one of the other prestigious colleges in the city, there are a variety of cheap apartments that can be found at Rent.com. Cheap apartments for rent are available for those who want to scale down their living expenses too. If you're just starting out in your chosen career path, you can easily find a cheap apartment at Rent.com by using their price filter to find the perfect location in your price range. Many college students find themselves loving the historic city so much that they want to start their careers there. After spending years in a dorm with others, students will definitely want to have their own living space. For those starting out their new lives in a thriving city, a cheap apartment is vital.

Finding a Cheap Apartment in Boston

Boston, Massachusetts is full of historic and unique attractions. The neighborhoods are filled with a diverse group of people like college students, new families and upwardly mobile professionals. The city is split into different neighborhoods and sections that are considered a part of Boston like Allston-Brighton, where a one bedroom starts at $750 per month, or Sommerville, where an apartment starts around $850 per month. Cambridge is another section of the city that has affordable apartments. A one bedroom apartment in Cambridge can start at $875 a month. To obtain a cheap apartment in the historic city, you might have to increase the range of your search to these neighborhoods and be willing to consider a smaller living space like a studio or one bedroom apartment. Rent.com has a helpful blog about these smaller apartment options.

What to Look for in Cheap Apartments in Boston

Cheap apartments are unlikely to have amenities like onsite parking, air conditioning or onsite laundry. In Boston, air conditioners are not required amenities like a heating system, which is needed in the cold winters. With the many transportation options, you won't necessarily need a car and have to worry about apartment parking. With all the laundromats in the area, you won't be needing onsite laundry facilities. A cheap apartment in Boston will usually have less square footage of living space compared to more expensive apartments. You could find a studio with 400 square feet of total space or a one-bedroom with less than 650 square feet. Both options will get you a cheap apartment in the city.
