City GuideNeedham
Needham, Massachusetts is a small bedroom community outside of Boston. At just under 30,000 residents it's either a large town or a small city, depending on your viewpoint. Either way, Needham is a vibrant community that has at one time or another played host to over 50 notable citizens and prides itself on it's economy and friendly environment.

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

Moving to Needham

This is one of those places where you want a little lead time before making the move. It's not that you need a lot of time to find a place or to get all of your ducks in a row. You need some preparation because you don't want to move in winter if you can avoid it. This is a cold and snowy location. It's a great place to live but it's never fun to try and move into a new place when it's snowing and bone chilling cold!  Renting a place is pretty basic, references and a credit check will smooth the process as does the willingness to hand over a decent security deposit. If you have pets, it helps to have references for them as well.

At the upper end, you are looking at around $4000-$5000 a month for a 2 to 3 bedroom place with all the amenities and around $1,500 a month at the low end. You can find studio apartments with all bills paid in Needham. In addition to a security deposit many places also require a pet deposit so be sure to check when making plans.  Houses tend to rent for a bit less as their amenities also tend to vary greatly from property to property.

Living in Needham

Living in Needham is fantastic because it is a walking community. There is a wonderful downtown historic city center that is great for walking around and enjoying the city. If you take a walk around the town square, you will find an outstanding restaurant named Joe's that serves an outstanding smokehouse jambalaya. Their burgers are also great and if you are looking for something completely unique, try the Crab Cake BLT.

If your taste runs a bit more exotic, be sure to visit The Rice Barn. The spicy miso scallops are an interesting mix of texture and flavor and the ginger chicken is a local favorite.

There is more to do in Needham than eat at Joe's. The community has events and festivals all year long and a few of the annual favorites are the Fourth of July celebration, The Harvest Fair and the Spooky Walk. The Fourth of July celebration has fireworks, concerts and activities. The annual Harvest Fair is a celebration of autumn and consists of concerts, a parade and activity booths. There are also craft items available for sale as well as local produce such as apple butter and pumpkins.

If you are a sports lover, you will find plenty of hiking and biking trails, the Charles River area being a favorite, as well as winter sports in the immediate area. For indoor activities, there are museums, art galleries and plenty of shopping.

February 2020 Needham Rent Report

Welcome to the February 2020 Needham Rent Report. Needham rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Needham rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Needham rents declined moderately over the past month

Needham rents have declined 0.3% over the past month, and are down significantly by 3.6% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Needham stand at $1,285 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,593 for a two-bedroom. This is the fourth straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in September of last year. Needham's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 2.1%, as well as the national average of 1.6%.

    Rents rising across cities in Massachusetts

    While rent decreases have been occurring in the city of Needham over the past year, cities in the rest of the state are seeing the opposite trend. Rents have risen in 9 of the largest 10 cities in Massachusetts for which we have data. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 2.1% over the past year. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the state.

    • Looking throughout the state, Cambridge is the most expensive of all Massachusetts' major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $2,315; of the 10 largest cities in the state that we have data for, Brockton, where a two-bedroom goes for $1,491, is the only other major city besides Needham to see rents fall year-over-year (-3.1%).
    • Somerville, Cambridge, and Lawrence have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (4.5%, 3.8%, and 3.5%, respectively).

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Needham

    As rents have fallen significantly in Needham, many large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Compared to most large cities across the country, Needham is less affordable for renters.

    • Needham's median two-bedroom rent of $1,593 is above the national average of $1,193. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.6% over the past year compared to the 3.6% decline in Needham.
    • While rents in Needham fell significantly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.7%), Dallas (+2.4%), and Seattle (+1.8%).
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Needham than most large cities. For example, Detroit has a median 2BR rent of $898, where Needham 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.
