Average Rent Prices in Beacon Hill

Beacon Hill Pads has published an average rent price infographic together with Boston Pads, allowing anyone to get a closeup look of the apartment rental market in this historic and highly coveted Boston neighborhood.  

Beacon Hill average rent prices were sourced using 236 local Beacon Hill apartments that have either been rented in the last year or are currently available. The Real time vacancy rate was determined by taking the total number of currently available apartments plus units that will become available in the next few months, and dividing by the total number of apartments in that area.  The latest population and average income data was pulled directly from the United States Census Bureau

According to this data, the average rent price in Beacon Hill for a studio apartment is the highest of any neighborhood in the city: $1801. The Symphony/Northeastern neighborhood was a close second at $1800/month. In nearby Back Bay, studio apartments average $1750 per month, while a North End studio apartment will cost you $1,570/month.  Beacon Hill averages are very similar to average rent prices in Back Bay as well as average rent prices in North End:

Compared to the other 22 areas sampled, Beacon Hill is one of the most expensive places to live in Greater Boston.  It currently ranks highest for studio apartments, 2nd highest for 1 bedroom and 3 bedroom apartments, and 5th highest for 2 bedroom apartments.

Given its limited inventory, low vacancy rates and its prime location next to downtown, it’s no wonder why rents are so high in this neighborhood. That reality is reflected in the median household income, which in Beacon Hill is $90,347.
