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 asking $ 1,700 or less per month—because who has thousands to drop on a rental, anyway?

Below, peruse five one-bedroom apartments for rent in Boston for $ 1,700 or less per month.

1. 65 Beach Street #2, Chinatown
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $ 1,450 per month

Available now, this second-floor Chinatown apartment is quite the rare find. It’s situated just outside the Chinatown gate, yet still only asks $ 1,450 per month. The place was renovated last year—it boasts a new stove in the kitchen, space for an office, and, of course, an extremely convenient location.

2. Concord Avenue #1, Somerville
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $ 1,700 per month

A large back deck, glossy hardwood floors, and bright bay windows are a few of this unit’s desirable features. Louvered bifold doors separate the bedroom from the living room, lending an open air to the apartment while still offering the option for privacy. Available December 15, this Somerville suite is a few minutes walking to Inman Square, and 15 to Harvard.

3. 1238 Commonwealth Avenue #54, Allston
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $ 1,700 per month

In an apartment awash with white and wood tones, its lemon-yellow tub is a refreshing pop of color. Other welcome surprises include asymmetrical cabinets, plenty of closet storage, and an in-building elevator. Parking just behind the building is available for an extra monthly fee, but this pad’s location—just off the B Line and across the street from the bustle of Harvard Avenue—nearly eliminates the need for a car.

4. 74 Craigie Street, Somerville
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $ 1,500 per month

Attention, cat-lovers! Feline friends are welcome in this Spring Hill abode. The bathroom’s sea-foam green tiled walls and glass shower doors add to its retro appeal. The unit features comforts for a fickle New England climate: a built-in air conditioner cools down the living room in warmer weather and wall-to-wall carpeting keeps things cozy in colder months.

5. Westgate Road #4,Chestnut Hill
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $ 1,500 per month

Heat and hot water may be semi-standard costs to include in rent, but this Chestnut Hill treasure also grants access to an in-ground swimming pool and a pair of tennis courts. Bridging the Brookline-Newton border, this place is bordered by quaint residential streets and large swaths of green space such as Hancock Woods. Available now, the unit is close to several bus routes.

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.
