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 still available for a September 1st move-in—because you know there are still plenty of stragglers among us. The only catch? They’ll have to pay a premium, as last-minute leases don’t come cheap.

Below, peruse five apartments —from a studio to a four-bedroom—for rent in Boston and ready for a September 1st move-in.

1. Kemble Place, South Boston
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $3,400 per month

Ten-foot ceilings and more than 1,300 square feet of living space make this enormous space a City Point paradise. In-unit laundry and central air ensure comfortable and easy living in this mod, industrial apartment. Exposed wood beams and distressed hardwood flooring bedeck the open living space, which begs to be filled with pals enjoying cocktails. Don’t forget to take the party outside to the communal garden, outfitted with seating and grills.

2. 74 Revere Street #4F, Beacon Hill
Bedrooms: Studio
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,200 per month

Though few ever get the chance to, living on the penthouse floor of a Beacon Hill brownstone is as quintessentially Bostonian as going to a Sox game on a summer day. Call this fantasy your reality on September 1st, and never grow bored of looking out on onto a gorgeous, tree-lined Revere Street. Equal parts cozy and airy, this warm studio is welcoming abode for both you and your houseplants.

3. 44 Saint Botolph Street #2D, Boston
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $3,000 per month

Tall ceilings, recessed lighting, and exposed brick will bring your Back Bay dreams to fruition in this chic loft. The rent may seem steep for a one-bedroom, but the lofted parlor level can double as your in-home office, making it a two-for-one.  A half wall separates the living room from the granite and stainless steel-adorned galley kitchen, creating more privacy and the illusion of an even larger space. To top it off, rent includes access to a shared roof deck.

4. 1212 Kilby Street #3R, Somerville
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,800 per month

Bring your cats and dogs along on moving day when you unpack at this top-floor coop. Take a walk down the street to Union Square Donuts, or trek a few blocks further to the coffee shops and bars of Inman Square. The apartment’s open floor plan makes for a spacious eat-in kitchen and a living room big enough for a large sectional. Though already clean and bright, the common area will be polished with a fresh coat of paint prior to move-in.

5. Washington Street, Brighton
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 2
Rent: $4,200 per month

Be the inaugural tenants in this newly-constructed Oak Square pad. Enjoy all-new everything, from glossy hardwood flooring, to a steamy glass-enclosed shower, to a granite-graced kitchen anchored by a large island. Personal laundry units and a back deck come with the apartment, and parking and pets are possible for an extra monthly fee.
