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 for rent in Brookline—with move-in dates as early as March as far in the future as September.

Below, peruse five apartments for rent around Brookline.

44 Saint Paul St., Brookline
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 2
Rent: $4,800 per month

It’s never too early to start looking for a September 1 apartment. Consider this cat-friendly four-bedroom unit just outside Coolidge Corner. Granite counters, stainless appliances, and pendant lighting outfit the open kitchen, where abundant cabinets provided enough space for the groceries and dishes of four roommates. And along with two bathrooms, this apartment has two balconies.

5 Fuller St. #5A, Brookline
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $3,000 per month

A block off Harvard Ave., these retro digs—note the patterned kitchen floor and pink bathroom tiling—are less than five minutes from local favorites like Union Square Donuts, Kupel’s Bakery, and the Daily Catch (and the newest addition, Soup Shack). Throughout the living room and bedrooms, bay windows and large windows look out onto the tree-lined street below. A pair of tandem parking spots is included in rent, which will come in particularly handy for the June 1 move-in.

40 Brainerd Road, Allston
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $3,900 per month

Technically on the Allston side, this top-floor unit hovers right on the Brookline border. Lofty ceilings, spacious bedrooms illuminated by skylights, and an open layout make this four-bedroom pad feel bright and breezy. Plus, the Green Line, a 66 bus stop, and a slew of restaurants are just around the corner.

1284 Beacon St. #310, Brookline
Bedrooms: Studio
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,955 per month

Available March 3, this modern studio is made up of a large bedroom with hardwood floors and picture frame paneling, and a separate eat-in kitchen. Not only does rent include heat and hot water, but the elevator building also grants tenants access to the on-site fitness center.

57 Longwood Ave. #6A, Brookline
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,900 per month

Forget those cramped two-bedrooms with little room to move around. This rental boasts a sizable eat-in kitchen, living room, and dining area, as well as two sunny bedrooms. Not only is it a five-minute walk from Coolidge Corner, but its Longwood Ave. location means you’re right next to Trader Joe’s, and a straight shot to the Longwood Medical area and Fenway.
