Surprise: Rent Is Only Getting Higher

In unsurprising (but still frustrating) news, Boston rent is soaring to new heights. The average monthly rent jumped more than 7 percent to $1,881 in the past year, according to Rental Beast, a brokerage that follows the rental market in Boston neighborhoods. A two-bedroom in Back Bay now rents for $2,857 a month. In Jamaica Plain, it costs $1,536. [Boston.com]
