Apartment rents in the Boston area stayed pretty much the same from May into June or dropped slightly, according to a new report. The report analyzed the rents on available apartments during May, so it is a pretty good snapshot of the region right now.
As you can see from the table below, one- and two-bedroom apartment rents stayed pretty much the same month to month median-wise, though there were some dips (note the nearly 5 percent decline for Quincy one-bedrooms).
The only real exception was in Newton, where the one-bedroom median spiked 4.4 percent month over month.
As for year-over-year changes, those were a bit more pronounced than month-over-month ones. For instance, in Boston proper, the median one- and two-bedroom rents stayed the same month to month; but they both dropped slightly year to year. More graphic storytelling below.
