This average rent infographic was created by Brookline Pads using rental data that was pulled from the Boston Pads database of over 156,000 Boston apartments, 500,000+ property photos, and 8,000+ videos.
Average rent prices were calculated from 845 Brighton apartments that either are currently available or were rented within the last year. The real time vacancy rate was calculated by adding the currently available apartments and those that will be available in the coming months, then dividing that by the number of all Brighton apartments in the database. The population and median household income data was pulled directly from the US Census Bureau.
