***UPDATED*** This market report has been updated, check out our 2022 Allston Apartment Rental Market Report!
2019 was an interesting year for both the Allston apartment rental market and Boston as a whole. In a year that saw a gradual leveling of growth throughout most of Boston, Allston has emerged as one of the stronger and more promising markets. This is great news for Allston after a period of stagnant and low increases in rents over the last several years. Growth in average rent prices in Allston outpaced that of the city as a whole for all sized units, and it appears as if we’re seeing an increase in demand for apartments in Allston as more and more people are getting priced out of the highly sought after neighborhoods close to downtown.
