City Guide
Brockton
Neighborhoods:

Brockton is a small Massachusetts time where the homes tend to be older, historic and established; reminiscent of days gone by and charming because of it. The neighborhoods listed below are some of the most popular in the Brockton area. The common thread among them is that they strive to provide a good community vibe for every resident.

Montello: Residents like living in this area because of its walkability, friendliness and older/established homes and neighborhoods. Living here residents can walk to state parks, Cleveland Pond, shopping, dining. A good area for those who prefer public transit (as this area is close to rail lines and bus stops) and convenient. While some homes and apartments are established in Montello, there are also newer complexes that feature paid utilities, covered garages, laundry suites and other perks.

Clifton Heights: Clifton Heights is made up of mostly single family homes, condos and apartments. Clifton Heights features new and established homes with large yards and is also in close proximity to parks and playgrounds.

Winters Corner/Marshalls Corner: A walkable neighborhood, this end of town features larger, established (some historic/built in 1939 or earlier) single family homes (4 bedrooms or more), condos, apartments. Homes here are more well established, some historic (1939 or earlier). Winters Corner is close to shopping, museums, golf courses and Route 24 for traffic and commuting purposes. Some apartments around here include some utility costs, pools and balconies.

Brockton Heights: Located right around the heart of the city (and in close proximity to Route 24 for traffic purposes), Brockton Heights is an area comprised of single family homes, high rise apartments, apartment buildings. While much of the housing in Brockton is established and historic, some of the houses in this area are newer. As with much of Brockton area apartments, some utilities are paid; however, apartments in this area also feature perks such as elevators, balconies, proximity to public transit stops, pools, private patios.

Transportation:

Getting around in Brockton is a matter of taste because public transit is readily available and the highways (called “routes” here, more on that later). The city relies on a transit authority system (BAT-Brockton Authority Transit) that serves residents in and around the city, as well as a rail system. The Middleborough/Lakeville commuter line moves through the city, stopping in Montello and Brockton Heights. The rail not only bring residents to pertinent points in Brockton but also carries them as far as Boston.

Perhaps it’s a northeast thing, but all the major roadways in this area are referred to as “routes,” so learn your numbers and learn ‘em fast. If you prefer to be the one behind the wheel, odds are you will be most reliant on Route 24. This state highway serves the west side of the city, connects with Route 27 (north) and Route 123 (south). Other roadways that are heavily used in the Brockton area are Route 28, which can bring you into the heart of the city quickly (for commuting purposes), Route 14 and Route 37.

Beautiful Brockton Weather:

Because of its northeast location, Brockton can get mighty cold. January is often the coldest month (temps can dip below freezing) and July is the warmest (high around 80). Needless to say, it is a Winter Wonderland during the holiday months and not a bad place to spend the summer if overheating is an issue of yours. Bottom line: Bring your galoshes and parka but also pack your bikini.

Brockton was settled with the American dream in mind. It has bred champions (boxers Rocky Marciano and Marvin Hagler) and has thrived and evolved with the country and its residents. With a devotion to the happiness of residents, Brockton is an ideal place for those coveting a northeastern address minus the hustle and bustle of a large town. Thousands of residents and founding fathers can’t be wrong, can they? Head to Brockton and settle down.

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

Methodology:

Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released Brockton's results from the first annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. The survey, which drew on responses from over 18,000 renters, provides new insights into what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the 105 million American renters nationwide.

"Brockton renters report overall satisfaction and give it above average grades in most categories," says Andrew Tam, Vice President of Data Science at Apartment List. "The US renter population is at its highest level in 20 years, and Brockton scores above average in categories that matter to this large demographic like the strength of the economy and access to recreation."

Key findings in Brockton include the following:

  • Brockton renters give their city a B+ overall which puts it above average.
  • The city earned a B for economy, with 25% of renters saying they believe it's on the right track. That matches the national average.
  • 63% of Brockton renters say they expect to buy a home, roughly in line with the national average. That earned the city another B.
  • Brockton's top grade was an A+ for quality of local schools, with 83% of respondents reporting that they are satisfied or very satisfied.
  • The lowest grade for Brockton is a C+ for safety and crime rate, with only 50% of renters expressing satisfaction.
  • Boston received the highest grade in New England at an A+, while Providence received a B- and 3 Connecticut cities - Hartford, Bridgeport, and New Haven - received F's.
  • The top rated cities nationwide for city satisfaction were Plano, TX; Boston, MA; Arlington, VA; Austin, TX; and Torrance, CA. The lowest rated cities were Newark, NJ; New Haven, CT; Bridgeport, CT; Hartford, CT; and Columbia, SC.
