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 $1,850 per month—because who has thousands to drop on a rental, anyway?

Below, peruse five two-bedroom apartments for rent in Boston for less than $1,850 per month.

1. 315 Meridian Street #2, East Boston
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,825 per month

For those looking to entertain, look no further than this new Eastie unit. The open-concept kitchen and living room encourage easy mingling, and sophisticated dark hardwood sets the stage for any soirée. The kitchen’s extended granite counter is ideal for preparing food or sitting down to enjoy it. Recessed lighting brightens up the living area, and a peek of exposed brick adds a pop of color to the freshly painted walls.

2. 17 Armstrong Street #3, Jamaica Plain
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,800 per month

This JP gem is gorgeous inside and out. Situated on a leafy residential street, it is also centrally located with the Jackson Square and Stony Brook T stops just five minutes from the front door. Inside, sunlight fills the spacious bedrooms and pours through the living room’s bay windows. The bright eat-in kitchen features a stainless steel stove and white tile backsplash, all ready for your use on November 1st.

3. Evelyn Street #3, Mattapan
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,650 per month

This cat-friendly two-bed occupies the top floor of a Wellington Hill three-family home. Pitched ceilings and diagonal lines throughout the unit are the stylish result of its third floor location. Stainless appliances and a mix of dark and light wood also add interest to the space, yet neutral-toned walls welcome the personal touches of a new tenant. Available now, this locale is close to several bus lines, plus a parking spot is available for an extra monthly fee.

4. 76 West Cottage Street, Roxbury
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,700 per month

Though its address suggests a quaint, cramped space, this unit is anything but. The cavernous living room offers enough space to split it into a living and dining area—the slim galley kitchen lacks room for a table—or to install a projector and create your own home theater. Sunny yellow paint covers the walls, and is color blocked by exposed brick in the living area. Both bedrooms are also bright and lemon-hued with closet space, but one is larger than the other, offering the option for adjusted split rent.

5. 467 Broadway #B, Medford
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,800 per month

This Magoun Square brick building straddles the Somerville-Medford line, meaning easy access to both zip codes. It’s just over a mile to Davis Square, and several restaurants, shops, and green spaces are even closer. Exposed ceiling pipes appear throughout the apartment, reading as chic when paired with the neutral paint choices and pristine hardwoods. These 850 square feet await new leaseholders starting on October 15.
