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. While it may feel strange to look ahead to renting new digs in the spring or fall right now, for many living in Boston, the search must go on. So, for your convenience, we’re highlighting a few Zumper listings with one unique characteristic. This round, it’s places for rent in Dorchester. Peruse snapshots below, contact the broker for more information, and opt for virtual video tours—social distancing and poking around strangers’ apartments don’t exactly go hand in hand.
