Rents across U.S. rise above $2,000 a month for the first time ever

Sharing is Caring!

new report from Redfin shows that nationally listed rents for available apartments rose 15% from a year ago. And the median listed rent for an available apartment rose above $2,000 a month for the first time.

Rents are up more than 30% in Austin, Seattle, and Cincinnati. In Los Angeles the median asking rent is $3,400. Even in formerly affordable cities such as Nashville it’s now $2,140, up 32% from last year.

“Housing is getting less affordable for everyone at every level,” says Daryl Fairweather, the chief economist for Redfin. She says after the last housing crash we didn’t build enough homes for a decade. And that lack of supply is the biggest force pushing up home prices and making it harder for people like Drotar to afford to buy a home.
