You’ll mostly find apartments for rent at the $2,000-per-month price point in Greater Boston. As you’d expect, you get a little more bang for your buck outside the city, like a 925-square-foot unit with views of Rockport Harbor or a 1,424-square-foot updated apartment in Winthrop.

In the city, you could rent a renovated South End unit, an East Boston apartment with an open floor plan, or a top-floor space in Jamaica Plain.
