If you like Disney and Deli meat...

Waltham made its name in the watch business. Also in the brass automobile business when car (called motocycles then) fittings were still old fashioned (like the big bug-eyed lamps used as headlights). Motocycles are long gone, but Waltham is still home to bug-eyed incoming freshman of Brandeis and Bentley – and a city that has seen a massive transformation as a dining and cultural escape – even for nearby Bostonians.

Waltham, a City and a Suburb All in One

With its roots deeply set in the industrial revolution, Waltham developed as an urban center outside the metropolitan Boston area. This history can be seen today in Waltham’s exceptionally diverse population with a multi-pronged urban feel, particularly in the downtown area. A high-tech relocation boom has been partly responsible for Waltham's current demographics.

For one, you will never get bored with Waltham dining. Moroccan Monday, Thai Tuesday and Welsh Wednesday (Shepard's Pie, Welsh Rarebit) will keep your palate interested in all that the city has to offer. If Sunday dropped the S, you could even enjoy a Ugandan feast every Unday. Of course, as Waltham is a bit of a college town, there's plenty of passable pizza options for those feeling like they've had there fill of Matooke (Ugandan plantain dish). Additionally, Waltham’s downtown is thriving and walkable, with lots of shops, bars, and nightlife.

As mentioned, Waltham is home to Brandeis University (editor's alma mater – Roll Deis Roll) and Bentley College, both of which keep the city enriched with cultural events and a youthful population. Though Waltham is less family-oriented than other Metro West area cities, settling in certain neighborhoods will keep away from the hustle and bustle of the single student life – although both colleges are considered small – around 4,000 undergraduates each. Additionally, the downtown Riverwalk and several of the city’s parks will provide plenty of outdoor recreation for you and your family.

Neighborhoods

Downtown

Downtown Waltham is sui generis among college towns. With some of the area’s best options for dining and nightlife – including some of the most highly acclaimed restaurants in New England – pretty tough competition, downtown manages a kind of Aspen like vibe appreciated by a working class and academia equally. Moody Street in downtown, or “Restaurant Row,” says it all. This is some feat considering 20 years ago Moody Street was aptly named – it put everyone in a bad mood.

Downtown is a densely packed urban area, thus possessing some drawbacks associated with lots of people in a small space – no, not bunkbeds. Safety and space may be a concern in this area. Generally, the most desirable and safest rentals downtown are found in the new developments along the Riverwalk. Riverwalk apartments are costly, with two bedrooms around $2500.

Collegiate Living

Bentley and Brandeis are located on opposite sides of the downtown, with Brandeis nestled in the southwest and Bentley in the northeast. These large college campuses dominate the rental market in the surrounding neighborhoods. However, each of these universities has their own distinct feel.

Generally, most Waltham residents will tell you that Brandeis has more of a party culture than Bentley. Though both areas have instances of noise and petty theft, Bentley is a bit quieter than its southwestern counterpart. The area surrounding Brandeis, however, does have a lot of single-family homes that have been divided into apartments, some located on quieter streets. Two bedrooms in the Brandies and Bentley areas go for $1600-$1800.

North Waltham and the Tech Belt

In a densely packed city with two college campuses, it may seem difficult to locate a quiet suburban complex to your liking. This part of the city developed alongside the technology companies setting up home offices in north Waltham in the late 1980s. Because of this, several rental complexes and nice, suburban homes were also developed.

In the Tech Belt, you’ll find new rentals with tons of amenities like gyms and swimming pools, along with a quieter lifestyle and a more family-friendly vibe. This region has the added benefit of being close to community centers like the Waltham YMCA. Additionally, you’ll have access to more large commercial shopping centers and chain stores. Two bedrooms in this area generally fall between $1800-2000.

Rental Tips

If you want newer, upscale developments along the Riverwalk or in the Tech Belt, your best bet is to go directly through the management companies that rent the properties.

Outside of newer developments, there are a plethora of rentals available via online apartment searches (hey-ohhh). Additionally, the Bentley and Brandeis campuses have a lot of rentals and room shares with flexible or no lease options.

Be prepared to spend up to $50 for background and credit checks to secure your preferred apartment. Deposits in Waltham are generally equivalent to one-month rent. If you’re a student, with lack of discernible earnings or credit history, you may need a co-signer for many of the campus-area apartment, but many landlords are used to this – some like the idea of more solvent mom & dad on the hook for the rent when you blow it all on funnels and Pink Floyd posters.

Getting Around

While the commute from Waltham into Boston isn’t necessarily the most pleasant during rush hour, with drive time on this 10-mile stretch sometimes taking as much as 40 minutes, the city has some advantages over other Metro West suburbs. For instance, the city is located right on I-95 and the Massachusetts Pike, which means you won’t need to drive far to get to Boston’s main artery.

Waltham is also home to two MBTA rapid-transit stops—the Waltham stop downtown and the Brandeis/Roberts stop on campus. Many farther flung and larger apartment complexes frequently offer residents free shuttle service to one of these stations. Both stations have park-and-ride lots, though parking is generally easier and more plentiful at the Brandeis stop. There are also several local and express buses operating into Boston and neighboring Metro West cities.

Welcome to Waltham – a place that once considered ethnic dining ordering a pizza with an Orangina. Now, the pizza has arugula, crème fraiche, and butter-poached monkfish and the Orangina – well, that's still Orangina because it is delicious.

August 2019 Waltham Rent Report

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

Waltham rents declined significantly over the past month

Waltham rents have declined 0.4% over the past month, but are up moderately by 3.9% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Waltham stand at $1,795 for a one-bedroom apartment and $2,226 for a two-bedroom. Waltham'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 Waltham, 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.
    • Cambridge has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Boston metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,328; rents grew 0.3% over the past month and 3.2% over the past year.
    • Lowell has the least expensive rents in the Boston metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,547; rents increased 0.7% over the past month and 1.1% over the past year.

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Waltham

    As rents have increased moderately in Waltham, a few large cities nationwide have also seen rents grow modestly. Compared to most large cities across the country, Waltham 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.
    • Waltham's median two-bedroom rent of $2,226 is above the national average of $1,191. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.6% over the past year compared to the 3.9% rise in Waltham.
    • While Waltham's rents rose moderately 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 Waltham than most large cities. For example, Philadelphia has a median 2BR rent of $1,183, where Waltham 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.
