As the largest home rental listing platform in the country, we have access to unique data on housing affordability across the country. The price of multi-family and single-family home rentals continue to fluctuate, and renters are having a difficult time navigating the market.
To the surprise of many, the general rise in rental home prices is not actually reflective of the entire market. In reality, all of the rent increases this year are coming solely from the single-family rental segment, while multi-family home rental prices are actually decreasing. The price of apartments nationwide has actually decreased by 2.3% since August.
We have broken this data down regionally across the US so you can see the trends in rental housing and affordability in your area.
Within the data we’re offering you, you can find information on rent in any place you’d like. You can look at our data at three different levels: MSA, city, and zip code. You can use this data to track how markets are changing over time, from month to month. For each location, the data set includes:
- The average listing price
- The median listing price
- The maximum listing price
- The minimum listing price
- The number of listings Dwellsy has in that location
You can see one example of how our data was used in this piece about the downtown market in Albuquerque. As you can see, our data is comprehensive because it includes a wide range of rentals. It also allows you to see a broad picture of how your local rental market is doing as a whole. Check out the sample of data from Denver below.
