City GuideBrookline
"I’m rich and smart, my home is charming, sense of irony well-honed. I buy used books and Britas, I snack on nuts and wine." (Jonathan Coulton, "Brookline")

Overlooking Boston, Brookline, Massachusetts has spent much of its history fighting tooth and nail against attempts to merge with its much larger (and much less refined!) neighbor, a stubbornness that has allowed it to keep its own unique history and develop its own identity. Brookline founded the first private golf club in America in 1882, which helped form the United States Golf Association. JFK was also born and baptized in Brookline. Brookline is also known for its beautiful parks, where residents like to sit back and relax after a hectic day -- when Massachusetts thaws out from winter, that is.

Having trouble with Craigslist Brookline? Can't find that special apartment for rent on Apartment Finder or Zillow? Apartment List is here to help!

Renting a Home in Brookline

The majority of people living in Brookline actually work in Boston, but prefer the feeling of the town life to the bustling city. This has led to a unique housing situation compared to many towns of similar size. Whereas most towns have a lot of single family homes, there are a huge number of apartments in Brookline -- from high-rises to small complexes. So you'll have a lot of choices when trying to find an apartment rental in the area, and you can have as many bedrooms as your heart (and roommates) desires.

The most important thing to consider when planning to get an apartment of any size in Brookline is money. Even by Massachusetts standards, Brookline costs you a hefty heap of dollars (or, in native-speak, "dollahs"). In return, you get lots of trendy shops and restaurants, top-of-the-line services, and you're within spitting distance of Boston. Brookline residents say it's all worth it, but be prepared to shell out some serious dough.

Great apartments are hard to come by, so be sure to have all your paperwork in order before you begin your search--you may need to pounce. Referrals from your employer, last landlord, and any important individuals you may know are necessary (got any senators in your contact list?). Proof of employment, credit checks, pay stubs, and bank statements are also essential in all but the cheapest rentals. Think of it as getting an impromptu audit.

Choosing a Neighborhood

Frankly, all of Brookline is nice, but some places are nicer than others, and some areas are more affordable. Here's a brief description of the various 'hoods, with relative price ratings.

Saint Paul Street: Situated in north Brookline, this is the best of the best, filled with high-rise apartments. If you can get a place here, you know you're on top, regardless of what floor you end up on. $$$$$

Westbrook Village: A fairly stable part of town filled with single family homes. Renting a 3 bedroom home or a small studio home (1 to 2 bedrooms) is possible, but there isn't an apartment as far as the eye can see. $$$$

Hellenic College: Filled with historic houses, this old neighborhood is a fantastic snapshot of old style architecture. $$$

Boylston St.: This is the most renter-friendly place in Brookline, with low-rises full of 1 to 2 bedroom apartments. $

Brookline Village: Another affordable neighborhood, Brookline Village always has a few empty units at the small apartment complexes and high-rise apartments that make up the community. $$

Life in Brookline

Brookline residents tout the peace and quiet of their hometown. But, because of its rich community -- filled with highly educated people and lots of big-city professionals -- it is also a place to connect, learn, and have fun. There are many options for recreation and entertainment in the area, including sports clubs, fancy restaurants, stylish boutiques, and trendy nightclubs.

For people who are more into relaxing than living it up, Brookline is filled with parks, cafes, historical sites, art galleries, and other more sedate activities to fill up your time.

Brookline is often considered one of the best places to live in the entire Northeast. If you can put the price aside, it's a rich and dynamic community to join.

    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.
