The price of a one-bedroom apartment in Boston is down 12.6 percent since this time last year, according to a report the Zumper real estate site released Thursday.
The decrease reflects the trend of price drops in expensive rental markets across the nation. Nationwide, the median rent for a one-bedroom apartment dropped 0.5 percent month over month in September to $1,225, while the two-bedroom price decreased 0.4 percent to $1,483. The median rent for one- and two-bedroom homes in Boston was $2,210 and $2,680, respectively, according to the report.
Providence, however, saw its median rent for a one bedroom climb 5.2 percent month over month, making it the 12th most expensive rental market in the nation.
Thirteen cities out of the 100 in the report had record-breaking yearly decreases in the median cost of a one-bedroom apartment in September since Zumber started tracking them in 2015:
