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 $2,500 or less per month—because who has thousands to drop on a rental, anyway?

Below, peruse five three-bedroom apartments for rent in Boston for $2,500 or less per month.

60 Dustin Street, Brighton
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,400 per month

Near the Allston-Brighton border, this is any commuter’s dream: a half mile to the Commuter Rail at Boston Landing, or the Green Line at Warren Street, and even closer to plenty of bus lines, including the 57 to Kenmore or the 66 to Harvard. Inside, the kitchen offers modern pendant lighting, stainless fixtures, and an abundance of crisp white cabinets. Don’t miss out on the Parisian blue living room, available now.

57 Properzi Way #2, Somerville
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,400 per month

Cozy charm radiates from this Ward Two roost, starting in the pale turquoise sunroom. The eat-in kitchen follows suite, with light wood cabinets, sunny walls, and an exposed brick backsplash. A backyard and roomy back porch seal the deal for this three-bed, which occupies the top two floors of a two-family home, less than a mile from Porter Square.

31 West Eagle Street, East Boston
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,450 per month

High ceilings and bay windows grace this Eagle Hill unit, close to the waterfront and the Blue Line at Wood Island. A wood-topped island is the centerpiece of the renovated kitchen, while a stacked washer and dryer is the star of the bathroom. At just over $800 per roommate, this pet-friendly unit is available April first—a sweet deal, and not an April Fool’s joke.

243 North Harvard Street, Allston
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,500 per month

Get your groceries and an arm workout when you carry your bounty the mere five minutes home from Trader Joe’s. For longer treks, this second-floor abode sits right on the 66 bus route, meaning a quick hop-on-hop-off to Harvard Square or Allston’s Harvard Avenue, both a mile away in opposite directions. The unit itself is up for rent on September first, and features a huge living room, eat-in kitchen, and front porch.

224 Chelsea Street, East Boston
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,500 per month

This triple-decker perches on a tree-lined Eastie street, a five minute jog to the Airport T station. The interior features a large eat-in with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, and a garbage disposal, and a whitewashed bathroom with a conveniently cordoned off sink. Bay windows and lots of light also grace this cat-friendly apartment, available September first.
