September 2018 Sarasota Rent Report

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

Sarasota rents held steady over the past month

Sarasota rents have remained steady over the past month, but are down slightly by 0.2% year-over-year. Currently, median rents in Sarasota stand at $1,080 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,380 for a two-bedroom. Sarasota's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.7%, as well as the national average of 1.0%.

Rents rising across cities in Florida

While rent decreases have been occurring in the city of Sarasota over the past year, cities in the rest of the state are seeing the opposite trend. Rents have risen in 8 of the largest 10 cities in Florida for which we have data. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 1.7% over the past year. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the state.

  • Looking throughout the state, Pembroke Pines is the most expensive of all Florida's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $2,400; of the 10 largest cities in the state that we have data for, Cape Coral, where a two-bedroom goes for $1,130, is the only other major city besides Sarasota to see rents fall year-over-year (-1.4%).
  • Orlando, Tampa, and Hialeah have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (5.3%, 3.5%, and 2.7%, respectively).

Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Sarasota

As rents have fallen slightly in Sarasota, many large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Compared to most large cities across the country, Sarasota is less affordable for renters.

  • Sarasota's median two-bedroom rent of $1,380 is above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.0% over the past year compared to the 0.2% decline in Sarasota.
  • While rents in Sarasota fell slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+2.5%), Atlanta (+1.5%), and San Francisco (+1.1%).
  • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Sarasota than most large cities. For example, Detroit has a median 2BR rent of $890, where Sarasota is more than one-and-a-half times that price.

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.
