December 2018 Wilmington Rent Report

Welcome to the December 2018 Wilmington Rent Report. Wilmington rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Wilmington rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Wilmington rents increased slightly over the past month

Wilmington rents have increased 0.2% over the past month, and have increased moderately by 3.4% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Wilmington stand at $1,050 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,260 for a two-bedroom. This is the ninth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in February. Wilmington's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 2.5%, as well as the national average of 1.3%.

Rents rising across the Philadelphia Metro

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

  • Pottstown has the least expensive rents in the Philadelphia metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,020; additionally, the city has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro over the past month (1.5%).
  • Over the past month, Norristown has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 0.6%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,400, while one-bedrooms go for $1,160.
  • West Chester has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Philadelphia metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,600; rents were up 0.2% over the past month and 3.9% over the past year.

Wilmington rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have increased moderately in Wilmington, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Wilmington is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Wilmington's median two-bedroom rent of $1,260 is above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.3% over the past year compared to the 3.4% increase in Wilmington.
  • While Wilmington's rents rose moderately over the past year, the city of Seattle saw a decrease of 0.4%.
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Wilmington than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,100, which is nearly two-and-a-half times the price in Wilmington.

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.
