Living in Newton, MA

Are you a renter looking for a safe living environment within easy distance of a big city? What about access to all conveniences, as well as a stellar public school system, and a welcoming and active community? If so, then you should add Newton, MA, to your list of cities to check out for an apartment for rent. Newton is a suburban city approximately seven miles from downtown Boston and bordering the Charles River. Despite its proximity to the big city, Newton is a thriving city in its own right, featuring a wealth of unique shops and restaurants interspersed among chain stores, banks, and churches with leafy, residential streets lined with historic homes. Plus, Newton is one of Boston’s most affluent suburbs, but as a diverse community, renters will feel comfortable no matter their origins. Aptly nicknamed Garden City for its abundance of green spaces, Newton has become a regular fixture in Money’s “Best Places” rankings. However, renters considering making Newton their next home should note that, while “Heartbreak Hill” owes its name to being the most difficult hill in the Boston Marathon, its steep slopes are not the only thing that may break your heart: The cost of living in this sought-after suburb is twice as high as the national average, so bring a full wallet when looking for an apartment for rent.

Renting in Newton, MA

Despite the steep real estate prices, renters are the minority in Newton, where most residents own their homes. Newton features a dense, suburban environment, featuring a mix of tightly packed, detached, single-family homes in residential neighborhoods and apartment buildings of diverse heights and standing, some of which are converted grand historic homes. The cost of a rental apartment in Newton can cause some sticker shock, even for those who are familiar with the high rental fees in the area. In fact, the rent for an apartment in Newton is sky-high compared to the national average, but also significantly more expensive than the average rent in Massachusetts or even in the notoriously pricey Boston-Cambridge-Newton metropolitan area. Notably, according to rental laws in Massachusetts, landlords may ask renters for the equivalent of one month’s rent as a security deposit on a rental apartment, along with the first and last month’s rent, as well as the money necessary for the purchase and installation costs for a lock and key.
