September 2018 Waltham Rent Report

Welcome to the September 2018 Waltham Rent Report. Waltham rents remained steady 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 held steady over the past month

Waltham rents have remained flat over the past month, however, they are up slightly by 1.4% year-over-year. Currently, median rents in Waltham stand at $1,730 for a one-bedroom apartment and $2,140 for a two-bedroom. Waltham's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.1%, as well as the national average of 1.0%.

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, 9 of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

  • Haverhill has the least expensive rents in the Boston metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,520; the city has also experienced the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 4.0%.
  • Newton has the most expensive rents in the Boston metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,330; however, the city has also seen rents fall by 0.1% over the past month, the biggest drop in the metro.

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.
