Rent Hits All-Time High

By T. Thompson In Latest News with Comments Off on Rent Hits All-Time High

The national average price of rent hit another all-time high, with median one-bedroom rent spiking 12% year-over-year, to $1,374.

The new record-high comes as inflation continues to impact Americans’ wallets.

Zumper, an online apartment rental website, has been tracking rental price data since 2014.

Data shows that the median two-bedroom rent is up 14.1%, rising to $1,698.

“For the national index to move by double digits takes incredible price increases everywhere, and that’s exactly what we’re seeing,” Zumper said in a press release.

“These still-rising prices also reflect a pre-existing housing shortage that will likely continue to push rent up in 2022.”
