Boston Remains in Top Five Most Expensive Rental Markets


After years of ranking right behind San Fransisco and New York for high rent prices, Boston is no longer in the top three, according to Zumper's rental report

The current median rent in Boston is $2,230, which puts it at number 5 on the list of top 10 cities with the most expensive one bedroom rent in the country. 

The cities with more expensive median rents than Boston include, San Fransisco, New York, San Jose and Oakland. Boston ranked just above Washington DC and Los Angeles. The rankings are based on median rents for available houses last month, so it provides a good view of what to expect if you're looking to rent now. 

This is the first time Boston hasn't been in the top three in years, but some areas of the city are still well above that median price. The most expensive area is Downtown Boston, with median prices around $3,110.
