Definitely not IN BOSTON as the city is WAY too pricey for me. I would really love to ideally find something for $1,000 or less. Although I know that may not be realistic. Any place an hour away from South Boston or less would do. My lease ends on June 30 so I'm looking for a July 1 move-in. I would only really want to stay until November, most likely at the latest, though I can be somewhat flexible with this.

I have of course checked Craigslist and some other places and come across some possibilities, but just wanted to broaden my search a bit by asking you folks.

Thanks in advance for any help

You need sublet with roommates, or to rent a room from someone not looking for a full year, and is very flexible. Your timeline is tough. It is hard to let someone in for only couple of months. Maybe offer to find a excellent replacement before you are gone? Maybe extended stay hotel would do the best.

Good luck!

Keep your eyes peeled for Quincy. Sometimes they pop up. Quincy is safe and within easy proximity to Boston.

Also check Brockton. It's not a great place by any stretch, but you have a few options for easy commuting. You can rent near any commuter rail station and take the commuter rail to South Station, or you can rent near Montello and take the 230 bus to Quincy Center and take the Red Line from there. The latter is the cheaper option ($75 link pass vs $239 or $269 for a commuter rail pass) and comes with more frequency (ever 20 minutes for the buses), but the commuter rail will be a shorter commute if it fits your schedule. You could also live anywhere in the region and drive to Quincy for the Red Line (or a nearby commuter rail station).

Rents in Brockton are lower so your money will go a good deal further. It's just not a nice city. It's pretty run down.
