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 $3,100 or less per month—because who has thousands to drop on a rental, anyway?

Below, peruse five four-bedroom apartments for rent in Boston for $3,100 or less per month.

1. Brackett Street #2, Brighton
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 2
Rent: $2,500 per month

Around the corner from Oak Square, this unit is in the midst of several green spaces, cafes, and a YMCA. Though there are no T stops nearby, there are several bus options including the 57 and 64. Available for rent now, the sun-soaked four-bedroom offers an eat-in kitchen with a dishwasher and plenty of cabinet space.

2. Chiswick Road, Brighton
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $3,100 per month

For those who are friendly with their roommates, the common space will be the star of this Brighton abode. The living area features a built-in corner shelving unit, while white wainscoting wraps around the room up to a set of French doors. And when you need a break from all that roommate bonding time, the private balcony is just outside.

3. Colborne Road, Brighton
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $3,000 per month

This pet-friendly apartment was painted with panache—from a hallway in lime green to a sherbet-orange bedroom. Yet the lively hues are offset by neutrals, such as a white stripe of chair rail around a green living room, and a perfectly modern kitchen with granite counters and stainless appliances. Two blocks from Comm. Ave., this unit offers quick access to the B Line, and has a parking spot to boot.

4. 3 City View Road #2A, Brookline
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,800 per month

Some street names are misnomers, but not this one. City View Road is one of the several scenic tributaries off of Brookline’s steep yet spectacular Summit Ave., cresting at Corey Hill Outlook. For an even $700 per roommate, enjoy a chandelier, glamorous dark wood trim, a built-in hutch, and a decorative fireplace—and that’s just in the living room. Head to the sunroom for some vitamin D, or the bathroom for a soak in the bubblegum-pink tub.

5. 41 Brainerd Road #B, Brookline
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $3,000 per month

For those proactively looking to change addresses next year, this spacious basement unit will be ready to welcome a new batch of tenants on September 1st. Cats and dogs are welcome and will have room to roam around in the sizable living room and bedrooms. The kitchen includes a dishwasher and built-in microwave, and though it’s narrow, it opens up into a vast dining area. Situated on the Brookline-Allston border, this spot offers the best of both worlds.
