Report Methodology

For the ApartmentAdvisor National Rent Report, we analyze rent prices across the U.S., calculating a median price by unit size based on list prices for available rental listings in the given location during that month. The set of 100 large cities highlighted in our report is primarily determined by overall population size, however we include some smaller cities with relatively high populations for the home state (e.g. Burlington, VT and Portland, ME) and we exclude some highly populated cities due to their proximity to other major cities (eg. Garland, Texas is not included due to its proximity to Dallas). We take all the unique apartments that were available for any amount of time during a time period, deduplicate them by unit type, and remove unreliable listings. We use a minimum threshold of units for cities to ensure that data is accurate. Luxury bias is removed by focusing on median figures instead of averages.

ApartmentAdvisor also tracks more detailed rental price and inventory data for all 100 cities, updated daily. These can be found on our Market Reports page.

The tables above can be sorted by price by clicking the column headers. Data can also be downloaded as a CSV. If you have questions about our data, or if you have a specific question you would like us to answer, please contact our team at pr@apartmentadvisor.com.
