Boston rents set new record

The average rent in Boston in the fourth quarter of 2015 topped $2,000 for the first time, rising 5.5% from a year earlier, according to this report from Reis.Inc.
Meanwhile, a new Zumper report shows that the median rent for a 1 bedroom apartment in Boston in February was $2,290. The “good” news is that rents in Boston have dropped slightly of late while those elsewhere continue to rise.
