Renting a 3 bedroom apartment in Watertown, MA

With 25 apartments in Watertown, MA, it can be hard finding just the right 3 bedroom apartment. Before you even start thinking about size, price and features, you have to choose a neighborhood. And that’s no easy task, considering that, depending on the area, you get a wide range of rentals in Watertown, MA, from very cheap to very expensive. Cambridge is the most expensive neighborhood of Watertown, MA with rents as high as $10,989, while in more affordable areas like Lowell the monthly rent can be as low as $1,948. Then you also have to factor in the distance to work, kindergarten and/or school. It’s an important decision, as most likely you’re going to spend the next couple of years in this apartment with your family. You are not just searching for an apartment to live in, you’re searching for a home. The internet is supposed to help, but it only confuses you further with redundant lists of things you should pay attention to. We know the feeling very well. Let us give you just one piece of advice: take the rational path and get your priorities right. The only person who knows what type of apartment you need is you. Create a mental or written list of things you absolutely cannot live without, filter accordingly. If a balcony or a garage is absolutely crucial, then head on to the filters section and check the ones you want. This way you will save time by skipping the apartments that don’t meet your criteria.

Is choosing a cheap apartment worth it?

There are certainly plenty of options among our 25 available units in Watertown, MA if you’re considering also cheap 3 bedroom apartments. But are they worth considering? Certainly. Yet, you should not get carried away with very low prices, as your decision is not affecting only you. Most probably you’re moving with a family, and for the next few years this will be the place where your children will create memories. Good or bad. Remember how much you hated staying between four walls when you were a kid? Are there any playgrounds or parks around? Neighborhood amenities are important too. Cheap apartments in Watertown, MA have low prices mostly because of their location. Take into account your morning commute. With children morning commutes are quite long anyway, so moving to that amazing apartment in Lowell can quickly become a drag if it’s on the opposite end of town than your job or the oldest one’s school. That being said, cheap apartments can be really good deals, but not at any price.
