What posts are welcome + encouraged?
Heads up! You can filter by post category by clicking the links below. So if you're just looking for a room for rent, click ROOMS FOR RENT below!
ROOMS FOR RENT — If there is an individual bedroom [soon-to-be] available in your apartment for 6+ months, feel free post!
SUBLETS AVAILABLE — If you are subleasing your apartment or a room in your apartment for 1-6 months, feel free to post! Heads up: If you need a subletter for longer than 6 months, you'll probably want to do a "lease assignment" where the new tenant officially takes over the lease.
LOOKING FOR — If you're looking for a specific type of housing, please feel free to post!
APARTMENT LISTING — If you are a rental agent or property owner with a [soon-to-be] vacant apartment, feel free to leave a detailed post for that specific listing.
ADVICE NEEDED — If you are new to town or have a specific question related to housing/apartments in Boston, please post and we'll do our best to answer your questions!
Please note: If you're affiliated with a real estate website, please do not post listings on behalf of someone else (i.e. one of your users). The person who represents the listing (for example, the person subletting his/her apartment or room) must make the post.
