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 $3,500 per month—because who has thousands to drop on a rental, anyway?

Below, peruse five four-bedroom apartments for rent in Boston for less than $3,500 per month.

This Allston apartment is replete with unique embellishments: a brickwork fireplace, a vibrant teal accent wall, and a tin tile backsplash.

2. 722 Saratoga Street #2, East Boston
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $3,200 per month

Located in Boston’s northernmost neighborhood, these newly remodeled digs offer a cavernous kitchen anchored by a wall of white Shaker cabinets and stainless steel appliances. Recessed lighting, French doors, and a glass-walled shower transform this Eastie pad into an illuminated oasis. Plus, Constitution Beach is a 15-minute flip-flopped walk away.

3. 47 Gordon Street, West Somerville

Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $3,300 per month

With decks off of the front and back, this bright red duplex offers plenty of opportunities for al fresco dining and drinking. Neighbored by Teele and Davis Squares and Tufts University, this spot is ideal for students and it is available September 1st, just in time for the fall semester.

4. 70 Foster Street, Brighton
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 1.5
Rent: $3,200 per month

This Oak Square-adjacent townhouse is perfect for the entertaining introvert—all of the shared living spaces occupy the first floor, while the second story is reserved for the four bedrooms and full bath, meaning you can pop upstairs for a mid-soirée reprieve. Ceiling fans in each room and cool-toned walls lend welcoming and relaxing vibes, and a small but lush private backyard is the icing on the cake.

5. 94 Heath Street #1, Somerville
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 2
Rent: $3,475 per month

In-unit laundry can be hard to come by, but this apartment features an alcove dedicated to it—a front-loading washer and dryer sit below a tiled counter ready for piles of folded clothes. A large kitchen with plenty of cabinetry curves around and opens up into a dining area, and a backyard patio offers outdoor dining space. Another rarity: this sunlit home is cat and canine friendly.
