Chris asks…

Affordable Boston apartments?

Me and my husband are moving to Boston since he got orders to the USS Constitution. We plan on living out in town and have been searching the internet for places to live. We have a budget of about 1600-1800 dollars per month and were in search of a 2 to 3 bedroom apartment. Does anyone know some living areas in Boston between this price range? Your help is greatly apprecited!!

Donald asks…

Gas heating for a 2-bed or 3-bed apartment in Boston, MA?

Hi all,

I would be eternally grateful if anyone who has lived in a two- or three-bedroom apartment in the Boston area could enlighten me as to a typical gas heating/cooking expenses per month in the winter. I’m trying to decide whether it’s worth it for me to start a homestay for international students if it means I’ll have to pay the gas bill on top of the rent that previously included this expense.

There would only be two people in the apartment, even with the homestay. Both people would be out of the house from 7 or 8 AM until 5 or 6 PM…Any suggestions are super helpful :)

Thanks a lot!

Lizzie asks…

I want to move to Boston and get an apartment but am worried about high rent. Any suggestions on a cheap place?

I don’t have to live in Boston itself, I could live in a surrounding suburb like Somerville or something, but I do need to live near the T. On craigslist the rent is so high for a 2 bedroom apartment it is scary. I am coming from Maine. Any help?

Administrator answers:

You should look into living along the Blue Line – so East Boston or Revere. There are many 2 bedroom apartments for less than $1000 per month. The quality of life there is very good: close to the beaches, 10-20 minute T ride to downtown, a bustling and diverse atmosphere, great little places to eat. Downsides: a little more crime than the more uppity parts of Boston, noisy airplanes flying overhead – depending on whether your place is under a flight path.
