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 $2,000 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 $2,000 or less per month.

69 Coolidge Road, Allston
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,000 per month

Half a mile from Boston Landing, this Lower Allston locale is also a short walk from multiple grocery stores (Trader Joe’s lovers, listen up), a public library branch, and Harvard Stadium, if you feel like running the stairs. The possibilities are endless, really. Directional lights and large rooms furnish the interior of these well-located digs.

Bynner St. #4, Jamaica Plain
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,000 per month

Settled in JP’s Hyde Square, this two-bed isn’t far from stops on the Orange Line or E branch of the Green Line. Plus, Olmsted Park is nearby for sylvan and scenic walks. Inside, honeycomb-style tiles delineate the kitchen, parquet flooring runs through the living space, and skylights cast sunlight into multiple rooms.

57 Cushing Ave. #1, Dorchester
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,000 per month

Recently renovated, this Jones Hill unit feels fresh and spacious. A walk-in pantry provides space to store and organize all of your kitchen accoutrement, and keeps the rest of the eat-in clean so that you can dine in uncluttered peace. The place is surrounded by several bus options, and also sits within a half mile or so from the Commuter Rail at Upham’s Corner, as well as the Savin Hill Red Line stop.

14 Spring St. #5T, Somerville
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,000 per month

With a perpetually sunny street name like this one, winter might just feel a little less frigid. Outside Porter Square, this Somerville two-bed is close to a surplus of bar and restaurant options, as well as the Red Line—a particularly convenient spot for Lesley University students. Carpeted bedrooms, a tiled living room and kitchen, and a butcher block island adorn the apartment.

Congreve St. #1, Roslindale
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,950 per month

This pretty parkside apartment is on the first floor of an owner-occupied two-family home. Beamed ceilings, bay windows, and gleaming hardwood grace the living quarters, plus there are added perks such as a walk-in pantry, on-site laundry, and a covered back deck that looks out onto the building’s grassy yard.
