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 available in Malden—where reasonable rents abound, and downtown Boston is just a T ride away.

Below, peruse five apartments for rent in Malden.

21 Kenilworth St. #1, Malden
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,600 per month

Looking for a one-bed that won’t break the bank? Hold onto your savings with this first-floor apartment, which offers 870 square feet and an eat-in kitchen for less than many studios in Boston proper. Assigned parking, hardwood flooring, and decent closet space also grace the unit, which is close to several bus stops and under a mile from the Oak Grove Orange Line stop.

109 Summer St., Malden
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 2
Rent: $1,950 per month

Two bedrooms and two bathrooms for less than $1,000 per roommate, within a 25-minute T ride from downtown? You’d better believe it. Available now, these sunny and bright quarters are just down the street from the T and Commuter Rail at Malden Center. Heat is thankfully included in rent, though off-street parking will cost you a little extra.

26 Daniels St., Malden
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1.5
Rent: $2,250 per month

Recently renovated, the apartment showcases towering windows, granite countertops, and stainless appliances. The bedrooms, meanwhile, are fully carpeted and filled with sunlight—and one of them claims two closets of its own.

27 Thacher St., Malden
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,550 per month

If space is what you’re after, this Edgeworth unit should tick that box. Situated on the top floor of a two-family, this pad houses two bedrooms (each with their own walk-in closet), a generous kitchen with Carrera marble counters, an in-unit laundry area, and an office. Not to mention, wide, arched doorways make the main living area feel all the more cavernous.

224 Main St., Malden
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,895 per month

Minutes from the Orange Line, this pet-friendly apartment went through a gut rehab just two short years ago. The result? A modern unit with stainless steel and granite fixtures, recessed lighting, central air, and a washer/dryer in-unit. The cozy fireplace and spacious balcony are pretty nice, too.

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.
