Newton, Massachusetts

Welcome, Internet-savvy apartment hunter, to Newton: a lovely enclave with a fun, friendly vibe! This Boston suburb has an interesting neighborhood layout that gives greater Newton a small-town feel as opposed to a city. We’ll explain along the way, so for now just sit back, relax, and let's help find you an apartment quick so you can enjoy some of the local flavor!

About Newton

Quick history lesson to get you up to speed: The area was originally settled in 1630 as part of Cambridge, but the city of Newton was a farming community that transformed into a semi-suburban feeling city.

Newton is located a convenient 11-miles west of Boston, right off the Massachusetts Turnpike. This proximity means Newton, like many of Boston's suburbs, is linked via public transportation to the center of “the Bean” and is within close proximity to Boston's premier attractions. Additionally, Newton is home to the Crystal Lake, which has some public parks and beaches along its shore, two orchestras and is a major stop on the Boston Marathon route.

Unlike neighboring Watertown, Newton has a less dense feel. Newton has plenty of entertainment options and access to some shopping.

Don't You Dare Call Them Neighborhoods

The city of Newton is laid out in a particularly distinct and charming way. Rather than having a main city center with neighborhoods expanding outwards from this center, frequently going from urban to suburban, the city is composed of distinct villages. These villages frequently have their own center, giving each of Newton's neighborhoods a unique small town atmosphere.

North Newton Villages North Newton extends southwards from the Charles River down to Newton Centre and the city's central business district. North Newton is characterized by having a higher population density than the southern reaches, and is thus more urban feeling. Villages in north Newton include Aburndale, Nonantum, West Newton, Newton Corner and Newton Lower Falls.

South Newton Villages South Newton includes the parts of the city south of State Route 9. Villages in south Newton include Newton Highlands, Chestnut Hill, Oak Hill and Newton Upper Falls. Because these villages are a bit newer than the rest of the city's villages, they tend to feel a bit more suburban. Nearby golf courses, rentals in South Newton will generally have more amenities.

Newton Centre Newton Centre is, obviously, located at the center of the city of Newton and is home to several restaurants, boutiques and shopping centers. There are plenty of rentals available in Newton Centre.

Rental Tips

Begin your apartment search at least 60 days before your move-in date. You're going to need it.

As you begin your search, you'll have to decide whether you want to go through a broker or not. Brokers have access to a lot of apartments that you wouldn't otherwise be able to find, but they come at a hefty price. Be prepared to shell out some major cash for a broker (up to 10% of your annual rent), in addition to application fees and deposits. Or you could just use the site you’re already on. Just sayin’.

Getting Around

Almost everyone in Newton commutes to Boston. This means two things: one, that traffic will be pretty bad along the Massachusetts Turnpike into the city during the AM and PM rush hours, and two, that you should consider living close to a MBTA stop.

The hub of the city's public transportation is at the Newton Center station in the central business district. Here several train and express bus lines ferry Newton residents into and out of Boston proper. In addition to Newton Centre, Newton Highlands also has its own Green Line D Branch. Chestnut Hill has the most access to transportation, as it has a stop on both the Green Line D and B Branches. Commuting into Boston via train generally takes about 30 minutes.

For the less-serviced northern villages, a commuter line runs every half an hour into and out of the city during rush hour, and buses operating into nearby Waltham and Watertown can also help keep you mobile. Many of the larger T stations will also have large free parking available to commuters.

There you have it, a brief overview of Newton. What are you waiting for? Boston can only control most American sports for a short only so long, get in there while the getting’s good! Happy hunting!

    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.
