Renting a Beacon Hill condo

When looking to rent a Beacon Hill condo, there are a few ways to go about it. The most common ways to rent would be to rent from an apartment complex, or rent directly from a Beacon Hill condo owner. Both options provide pros and cons.

Beacon Hill Apartment Complex

Renting from an apartment complex can be the easiest route. Apartment complexes can be found throughout all of Downtown Boston but are hard to find in Beacon Hill.. Many apartments for rent in Downtown Boston also offer residents referral bonuses for bringing in new tenants. If anything breaks within the apartment, they generally have an on-site maintenance manager for quick response times, or at least a 24/7 phone number to call. The downside to these rentals is that there is no price negotiation. The lease terms and rental price are usually pre determined and there are no negotiations available. Because of the lower price points, apartment complexes usually attract younger tenants, which can often lead to the community seeming more like a dorm instead of a home. In Downtown Boston,

The other option for renters is to rent directly from a Beacon Hill condo owner. Many homeowners buy condos as second homes, and decide to rent them out when not in use. These are a little bit tougher to find considering there are no sales offices or signs helping you out. Often times, condo rentals can be found listed on Craigslist or by visiting a local area realty site . After the initial walk through is completed and you have decided to call the place your home, you must fill out a standard application and provide credit and income documents to the condo owner. They then decide on you as a tenant. The benefit for you as a renter is that you can negotiate the terms directly with the condo owner, including lease length, pets, and rental price. Beacon Hill condo buildings are usually smaller and much nicer than apartment rentals. Generally, a security deposit equal to one full month’s rent is required before move in. Downtown Boston Condo rentals can be found in every neighborhood of Downtown Boston


Either way that you decide to go, it’s always best to have someone that knows the local area and available rentals working on your side. Our Rental Agents  can send you current listings in the area that you’d like to live, and schedule showings with the condo owners, sometimes even taking you themselves. There is no cost for you as the renter, the rental agents are paid by the condo owners and apartment complexes for bringing them tenants.
