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 $2,700 per month—because who has thousands to drop on a rental, anyway?

Below, peruse five three-bedroom apartments for rent in Boston for less than $2,700 per month.

242 Lake St. #2, Brighton
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,600 per month

There is quartz counter space aplenty in this three-bed’s bright and stylish kitchen. A pair of geometric pendant lights hang over a small peninsula of counter to provide even more light and space for the room. The rest of the unit takes note, with the overhead lighting bouncing off of gleaming hardwood floors. A fenced-in backyard is right outside the back door, while the expansive Roger’s Park is just across the street from the front door.

30 Brooks St. #2, Brighton
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,500 per month

Want to soak up some Vitamin D, but don’t want to leave the house? This Brighton abode’s wood-paneled sunroom is the remedy. The carpeted floor adds to the coziness, and plants will love the in-house greenhouse, too. Available June 1, this cat-friendly gem also sports a wide front deck supported by Doric columns, perfect for when it warms up just enough.

394 Quincy St. #2, Dorchester
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,500 per month

There’s nothing worse than a cramped kitchen when you’re cooking up a gourmet storm, and this spacious eat-in is not about to get in your way. Plenty of floor space for a broad dining table, as well as a separate nook with a sink, counterspace, and lots of open shelving make this kitchen feel extra large. Details like warm apricot walls, chair rail trim, and rounded doorways make it simple to settle into this home, available May 1.

4-8 Lorraine Terrace #8A, Allston
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,695 per month

Tucked in a residential block behind Comm Ave, this brick dwelling offers an enticing slice of quiet in Allston. Inside, hardwood floors and plentiful windows set a sunny ambience. Two spacious bedrooms and one slightly smaller one offer the opportunity for adjusted rent, though all rooms will receive a fresh lick of paint before a September 1 move-in. Bus stops for the 57, 64, and 66 buses are nearby, and the B Line at Warren Street is a sweet two-minute stroll away.

198 Hyde Park Ave. #2, Jamaica Plain
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,600 per month

It doesn’t get much better than a front deck that looks out onto the sprawling Arnold Arboretum. This JP triple-decker is sophisticated from its slate gray facade to its decked out kitchen: a staggered kitchen island with built-in storage, stainless appliances, and abundant recessed lighting bring the room to life. Available now, this ideally situated unit is ready to welcome new tenants just in time to catch the lilacs in bloom.
