City GuideMelrose
Melrose was originally called Ponde Fielde for its abundance of ponds and streams. Guess Heather Locklear won't be starring here any time soon, huh?

Melrose is technically a suburb of Boston since it’s considered to be part of the Greater Boston Metropolitan area. It’s really tiny--only 4.76 square miles, so it’s more of a neighborhood than anything else. Melrose is a great combination of city bustle and peaceful escape. It’s also a historic town; both the downtown area and library are on the Register of Historic Places. The homes are old, quaint and lovely, and the town is home to lots and lots of parks and greenery. At the same time, all of this is located just 7 miles from Boston, so you can get to the city quickly and easily when you need some more excitement in your life.

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

Moving to Melrose

If you want to live in a grand old home, move to Melrose. About 65 percent of the city is made up of single-family homes – most of which are old and gorgeous. There are rental properties of all types in Melrose, however, so if you’re looking for an apartment or a house to rent, it could be just right for you.  Only 5 percent of the homes in Melrose are vacant, so it might be hard to find just the right thing. However, once you do, you’ll be likely to stay.

Melrose Places

Melrose is a neighborhood, but it’s also a self-sufficient community. Nearly every area is similar, but here is more information about where you can live in the city:

Mt. Hood Golf Club: If you live in the southeast corner of Melrose you’ll be near Mt. Hood Golf Club and close to the Melrose Common.

Pine Banks Park: This area, in southwest Melrose, has a lot of houses here.

Ell Pond: Right in the Northern central part of Melrose is Ell Pond. There is a huge park around the pond, and the area around it is lovely.

Living in Melrose

If you live in Melrose, you most likely live there to get into and out of Boston. Lucky for you there is a train right in and you don’t need to drive. (Even luckier because Boston traffic is terrifying.) People walk there so you can get away without a car, but you might want one, especially if you will travel long distances. You have easy flight and train options out of Boston, too.

Like most of Boston, Melrose is a great spot for history buffs. It has a real old-town feel, and people love the feelings of the old mansions. Melrose gives you quick and easy access to the excitement of Boston with the feel of a suburban town. It has a beautiful landscape and bustling town center.

August 2019 Melrose Rent Report

Welcome to the August 2019 Melrose Rent Report. Melrose rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Melrose rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Melrose rents increase sharply over the past month

Melrose rents have increased 3.1% over the past month, and have increased sharply by 8.5% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Melrose stand at $1,528 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,894 for a two-bedroom. This is the fifth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in February. Melrose's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 2.6%, as well as the national average of 1.6%.

    Rents rising across the Boston Metro

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Melrose, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Boston metro, all of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    • Newton has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 5.9%. The median two-bedroom there costs $2,279, while one-bedrooms go for $1,838.
    • Lowell has the least expensive rents in the Boston metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,547; rents grew 0.7% over the past month and 1.1% over the past year.
    • Cambridge has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Boston metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,328; rents were up 0.3% over the past month and 3.2% over the past year.

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Melrose

    As rents have increased sharply in Melrose, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly. Compared to most large cities across the country, Melrose is less affordable for renters.

    • Rents increased moderately in other cities across the state, with Massachusetts as a whole logging rent growth of 2.6% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 2.1% in Worcester.
    • Melrose's median two-bedroom rent of $1,894 is above the national average of $1,191. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.6% over the past year compared to the 8.5% increase in Melrose.
    • While Melrose's rents rose sharply over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including New York (+1.8%), DC (+1.7%), and Atlanta (+1.6%).
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Melrose than most large cities. For example, Philadelphia has a median 2BR rent of $1,183, where Melrose is more than one-and-a-half times that price.

    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.
