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 in Roxbury asking $1,000 or less per bedroom—because who has thousands to drop on a rental, anyway?

Below, peruse five Roxbury apartments for rent for $1,000 or less per roommate per month.

24 Seaver St. #8, Roxbury
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,850 per month

This September 1 option sits on the edge of the Franklin Park Zoo, and also isn’t far from the JP border and the neighborhood’s many activities—free tours and beer samples at the Sam Adams Brewery are just a 15 minute walk away. Recent renovations bless the fourth floor coop with new appliances, glossy hardwood, granite counters, and more.

3 Laurel St. #2, Roxbury
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 2
Rent: $3,000 per month

Available now, you can secure this 2,000-square-foot townhouse for just $750 per roommate when the rent is split equally between four. A gorgeous eat-in kitchen with glass pendant light fixtures and stainless appliances is a modern gathering space, and in-unit laundry is another nice perk.

56 Cedar Square #1, Roxbury
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 2
Rent: $3,900 per month

Located a half-mile walk from Roxbury Crossing, this pet-friendly apartment is centrally located. Central air graces the unit, along with sweet details such as a breakfast bar, river rock shower floor, stainless dishwasher and large fridge, and a washer and dryer. New tenants can move in on August 15, and get the rest of the month for free.

36 Circuit St., Roxbury
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 1.5
Rent: $3,595 per month

Two short years ago, this unit was gutted and completely renovated. Today, the Roxbury abode continues to reap the benefits of the extensive update, with central air, wainscot panelling, a subway tiled backsplash, and fresh cabinetry and appliances—including a microwave and dishwasher. It’s worth noting that one of the four rooms is smaller than the pack, so there’s a good opportunity for an adjusted rent agreement.

4-A Weld Ave., Roxbury
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,400 per month

A few blocks from the Orange Line’s Stony Brook station, this three-bedroom enjoys a marble tile-appointed bathroom, air conditioning, stainless appliances, and walls recently repainted in neutral Benjamin Moore shades. Easily let yourself in on September 1 with the unit’s keyless locks.

Note: Although Zumper’s apartment inventory is updated in real time, these listings are not guaranteed to be available. Check in with a listing’s leasing office to confirm availability and to schedule tours.
