Apartment hunting in Boston is overwhelming for a whole slew of reasons—heavy competition, pricing, and spiraling out of control on Craigslist are just a few of them. So, for your convenience, we’re highlighting a few Zumper listings with price constraints. This round, it’s places asking $2,600 or less per month—because who has more than $4,000 to drop on a rental, anyway?
