Here at Rental Beast, we love Boston! It’s a historic center with excellent access to jobs, education, and some world-class entertainment. Also, our Headquarters are right across the Charles River in Somerville (what’s more to love?) However, housing in Boston doesn’t come cheap. Rent is at an all-time high in Boston and rivaling other notoriously pricy coastal metropolises like New York and San Francisco. In September of 2019, RentCafe reported the average rent in Boston is a whopping $3,545, making it the 4th most expensive place to rent in the US.
At Rental Beast, we set out simplify the whole leasing process and empower agents. Our first, and biggest goal, was to get a database with at least 80% visibility in every rental market. All Rental Beast approved listings are sourced directly from property owners. Here’s a sneak peek into our database. See Rental Beast in Boston listings for the average rent.
