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 one unique characteristic. This round, it’s places asking less than $2,800 per month—because who has thousands to drop on a rental, anyway?

Below, peruse five three-bedroom apartments for rent in Boston for less than $2,800 per month.

Sandwiched between Paradise Rock Club and Brighton Music Hall, rooming here means never having to wonder what to do on a Saturday night. Its September 2nd move-in date allows you to avoid the bulk of the September 1st traffic, and frees up the day to reap the free-furniture benefits of Allston Christmas.
