February 2019 Washington, DC Rent Report

Welcome to the February 2019 Washington, DC Rent Report. DC rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the DC rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

DC rents held steady over the past month

DC rents have remained flat over the past month, however, they are up moderately by 2.2% year-over-year. Currently, median rents in DC stand at $1,340 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,550 for a two-bedroom. DC's year-over-year rent growth exceeds the national average of 1.0%.

    Rents rising across the DC Metro

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of DC, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the DC metro, 9 of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    • Rockville has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 5.5%. The median two-bedroom there costs $2,020, while one-bedrooms go for $1,750.

    • Frederick has the least expensive rents in the DC metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,530; rents went down 0.4% over the past month but rose 4.8% over the past year.

    Comparable cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to DC

    As rents have increased moderately in DC, a few other large cities nationwide have also seen rents grow modestly. Compared to most similar cities across the country, DC is less affordable for renters.

    • DC's median two-bedroom rent of $1,550 is above the national average of $1,170. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.0% over the past year compared to the 2.2% rise in DC.
    • While DC's rents rose moderately over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Austin (+3.3%), San Francisco (+2.7%), and Atlanta (+2.5%).
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in DC than most other large cities. For example, Philadelphia has a median 2BR rent of $1,170.

    Methodology - Recent Updates:

    Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

    Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

    Methodology:

    Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

    Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

    Read more about our methodology here.

    About Rent Reports:

    Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

    We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
