So, for your convenience, we’re highlighting a few Zumper listings with one unique characteristic. This round, it’s places asking less than $1,725 per month—because who has thousands to drop on a rental, anyway?

A partial wall between the kitchen and living room maintains division but opens up the space, making an ideal layout for entertaining guests.

Just off the B Line and close to several bus lines is this one-bed, available at the start of September. (It’s equally close to Coolidge Corner as it is to Packard’s Corner.)

And most importantly in this heat wave: a shared swimming pool sits right in the courtyard.
