Your Questions About Studio Apartments In Boston

David asks…

1 bedroom split in Boston apartments?

I’m moving to the Boston area, and I’m seeing quite a few listings for apartments with a “1 bedroom split”. What exactly does this mean? I’m nervous they are simply rigging a studio to look like a 1 bedroom, but one ad says something like “the alternative to a two-bedroom”. Can anyone explain this? Thanks.

Administrator answers:

I think it means one bedroom with a small office space that could be used for a bedroom if needed.

Administrator answers:

Inside Boston, $1200 and up for a 1 BR, depending on the neighborhood. (Anything less probably isn’t safe.) Homestead Suites are out in the suburbs, none in the city, but an apartment is usually cheaper. Studios are smaller than 1 BR.

Check out Craigslist.com for prices in different areas.

Chris asks…

Are the apartments in Boston’s South End expensive?

I am wondering if I will be able to find an affordable apartment in the South End.
I am planning to move out of my parents house in a few months…I will be making at least $12 an hour and working normal, 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.

I am looking for a one bedroom apartment…I hate studios. I want to move to the South End mostly because I am gay and it’s a really gay neighborhood. I want to meet a lot of gay men, even the gym in the South End is a gay majority gym. Next to that, everything else there is great..it’s beautiful, nice restaurants, lots of places to shop for anything I need….

Administrator answers:

South End is VERY expensive — $1500-$2000 for a 1BR. It’s not the only gay-friendly part of the city, but you aren’t making nearly enough for a safe 1 BR anywhere. You may have to start out with a roommate or share situation in a suburb on the subway. Try student areas — like near UMASS, BU, Tufts, Northeastern.
