Do I Need a Cah?
+

That depends . . . Will you be working within Worcester proper (or nearby suburbs?) Do you enjoy shoveling snow? Do you have a high insurance deductible? The Worcester Regional Transit Authority (WRTA) zips all around Worcester, and Boston is within easy reach via the "Commuter Rail" at Union Station. Cabs don't aimlessly roam the streets looking for fares, but they'll come if you call. If you're one of those “I can't live without a car” types, be advised that the typical Massachusetts winter weather can make local roads an icy nightmare.

Finding a Wicked Good Apahtment
+

This is a city with A LOT of apartments, but few high-occupancy apartment buildings, per se. Much of the vacancies you'll run across will be within multi-story, multi-family homes – aka “triple-deckers.” While there has been some factory and warehouse conversion into amenity-laden "loft residences," these properties definitely don't make up the bulk of the market. Most rentals will require first and last month's rent along with a deposit, but not a credit check. Also, competition is basically non-existent. Take your pick!

What Paht of Town is the Best?
+

Main South: Revitalization projects are ongoing, and the area has regularly scheduled farmer’s markets. Warehouses in the area are being redeveloped into lofts and its triple-deckers are being renovated.

The West Side: The West Side includes Salisbury Street, which boasts the priciest and most sought-after real estate within the city proper. Think tree-lined streets and gorgeous Victorian and Queen Anne homes.

East Worcester: The East Side has no lack of diversions: loads of great restaurants, neighborhood bars, Worcester’s largest public park, AND Broad Meadow Brook: a 500-acre Audubon Sanctuary.

Downtown: The Great Recession may have derailed The City Square Project (12 acres of office, medical, retail and residential development) but now it's back on!

There you have it, Worcester in a nutshell. The hardest part about finding a place to live in this place will be pronouncing its name correctly. Don’t worry too much about impressing the locals if replacing your “R”s with “H”s gets too taxing, we’re sure you’ll get the hang of things in no time. Grab your jackets and get hunting!

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released Worcester’s results from the third annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. This survey, which drew on responses from over 45,000 renters, provides insight on what states and cities must do to meet the needs of 111 million American renters nationwide.

"Worcester renters expressed general dissatisfaction with the city overall," according to Apartment List. "They gave most categories below average scores."

Key findings in Worcester include the following:

  • Worcester renters gave their city an F overall.
  • The highest-rated categories for Worcester were public transit (C+) and affordability (C).
  • The areas of concern to Worcester renters are commute time, weather, state and local taxes, social life, and pet-friendliness, which all received F grades.
  • Worcester did relatively poorly compared to other cities in Massachusetts, including Boston (A) and Cambridge (A+).
  • Worcester did relatively poorly compared to other cities nationwide, including New York, NY (C+), Philadelphia, PA (C+) and Los Angeles, CA (C+).
  • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction include Scottsdale, AZ, Irvine, CA, Boulder, CO and Ann Arbor, MI. The lowest rated cities include Tallahassee, FL, Stockton, CA, Dayton, OH, Detroit, MI and Newark, NJ.

Renters say:

  • "Close to jobs and other important opportunities. Close commute to everything. But the city is also dirty, dangerous and expensive to live in." – Kayla J.
  • "The homes are beautiful but the city lacks charm and shopping opportunities." – Madelyn J.
  • "I love being close to everything but hate the traffic congestion." – Theresa F.
  • "I love the local restaurants and nightlife but getting around is difficult without a vehicle." – Taylor R.
