Average Rent Prices in South End

South End Apartments has just published an infographic showing average rent prices for studios and apartments with up to 4 bedrooms.  This data was pulled from the Boston Pads database, which contains over 156,000 Boston apartments, 500,000+ property photos, and 8,000+ apartment videos.

The real estate site calculated these average prices from 324 South End apartments that were rented in the last year or are currently listed.  South End Apartments found the real time vacancy rate by adding the total number of apartments that are currently available to the amount of units that will become available in the next few months, and dividing by the total number of apartments in South End.  The latest population and income data came from the U.S. Census Bureau

Rent prices in the South End are relatively high compared with other towns and neighborhoods in Greater Boston.  Average rents in the South End far exceed those of South Boston.  A 1-bedroom apartment in the South End costs about $400 more per month than in South Boston.  The difference jumps up to $500 for a 2-bedroom, and nearly $1,000 more per month for a 4-bedroom apartment.  

However, compared to Back Bay, which borders the South End, rent prices are slightly less expensive.  Renters can expect to save anywhere from $100 to $200 per month if they choose an apartment in the South End rather than Back Bay, whether it is a studio, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, 3-bedroom, or 4-bedroom apartment.

Overall, the South End ranks high among the most expensive neighborhoods in Boston.  Compared to the other 22 neighborhoods analyzed, the South End has the 3rd highest average rent for both 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom apartments, the 5th highest rent for 3-bedroom apartments, and the 4th highest rent for 4-bedroom apartments.  With so much buzz and new development in the South End, it is to be expected that this neighborhood will remain one of the more expensive in Boston for the foreseeable future.
