City Guide
Puritans? Not Anymore!

The first settlers in new Marlborough were of the puritan strain of the Christian faith, which was popular in England at the time despite its followers being persecuted. It is likely that those who settled here were directly avoiding English persecution at the hands of the Catholics -- but oh dear, it seems that the modern town of about 39,000 is Catholic after all. At least they tried! At some point, the Puritan settlers were doomed to discover that people really enjoy wearing colored clothing, making music and poetry and dancing. What a shame that is, don't you think?

The Modern American Marlborough... With a Shoe Fetish

Marlborough was an early industrialized American town that had the benefit of government funding for a streetcar system that linked Marlborough to other nearby neighborhoods and attracted skilled tradesmen from around the world. When American manufacturing slowed down during the Great Depression, Marlborough's shoe-manufacturing factory plugged along and kept its workers in employment (as well as in some nice shoes, one might hope). The shoe fetish stuck with the creation of the The Rockport Company and the sale of famous Frye boots in the 1970s.

Houses and Rental Apartments in Marlborough

There are plenty of beautiful, well-maintained houses for rent in Marlborough, and even many one-bedroom houses for singles who don't fancy living in an apartment. These smaller homes cost from about $1,200 to $1,500 per month to rent, and most are quite luxurious inside, with new appliances and recent refurbishment. Houses in the downtown area of Marlborough are lower in price than those on the outskirts due to size restrictions. This is a town of luxury condos and homes that range in size from one to five bedrooms. Downtown is a bit older and much smaller in terms of home rentals than the fringe areas. If you want privacy and a dozen cats, look to the outskirts. For more options at dinnertime and one ear to the gossip, look downtown.

The plethora of apartment complexes in Marlborough is astounding in terms of the number that are available and the incredible high quality of the rentals. This is not the place to find an inexpensive studio apartment to house you while you write your thesis -- this is somewhere you celebrate your financially secure adulthood with an immaculately-designed home.

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.


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.
