January 2018 Miami Rent Report

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

Miami rents held steady over the past month

Over the past month Miami rents have remained steady. Currently, median rents in Miami stand at $1,070 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,360 for a two-bedroom. Miami's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 3.7%, as well as the national average of 2.8%.

Rents rising across the Miami Metro

While rents have remained steady in the city of Miami throughout the past year, cities across the metro have seen a different trend. Rents have risen in 9 of of the largest 10 cities in the Miami metro for which we have data. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

  • Miami Beach has the least expensive rents in the Miami metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,270; the city has also seen rents fall by 8.9% over the past year, the biggest drop in the metro.
  • Hialeah has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 5.6%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,370, while one-bedrooms go for $1,080.

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.

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.
