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 $1,925 or less per month—because who has thousands to drop on a rental, anyway?

Below, peruse five two-bedroom apartments for rent in Boston for $1,925 or less per month.

70 Davison St., Hyde Park
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,900 per month

This two-bed is vast in every respect. A charming back deck looks out onto a large, green yard, perfect for trying your hand at gardening or throwing a lawn soiree—and that’s just outside. Inside, both bedrooms are ample and feature mirrored closet doors. The eat-in kitchen is huge, with plenty of room for a large table or island, and oodles of cabinets. The icing on the cake: Cats and dogs are welcome to run around the sunny unit and into the fenced-in yard.

Ashford Street & Pratt Street #18, Allston
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,850 per month

Just in time for the season’s warmer ways, this light and glass-filled apartment will make sure you don’t miss a minute of sunshine. Glass-doored cabinets mean not having to choose between open and closed storage, and more built-in shelving perches high up to keep lesser-used spices and saucepans out of the way. The one-bedroom split layout makes this gem the cheapest of the bunch.

1 Chauncy St. #18, Cambridge
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,925 per month

Just west of Harvard Yard, this stately brick building is an ideal spot for Harvard and Lesley students, or anyone who wants to be close to two Cambridge centers: It’s a 10 minute walk to T stations at Harvard and Porter. In a rare bonus, rent includes WiFi and laundry, plus an updated interior. Recessed lighting illuminates the newly renovated kitchen, which flaunts stainless appliances and granite counters and a sweet breakfast bar.

295 Summit Ave., Brighton
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,900 per month

One block from the Brookline-Brighton border, this two-bed sits near the bottom of the Summit Ave incline. Unique details like a double mantel fireplace, rounded doorway, and floral stained glass window set this unit apart. A five minute walk from the Green Line’s Washington Street stop, this rare find offers basement storage and on-site laundry, all available on June first.

6 Reed St. #4, Somerville
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,900 per month

Light wood cabinets and white washed hardwood walls bring a whiff of Scandinavian style to this East Somerville abode. On its own tiny, dead-end street, this unit lives in a tree-filled, residential area, just a half mile from Sullivan Square T stop in one direction and Prospect Hill Park in the other.
