November 2018 Ankeny Rent Report

Welcome to the November 2018 Ankeny Rent Report. Ankeny rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Ankeny rental market, including comparisons to similar cities nationwide.

Ankeny rents increase sharply over the past month

Ankeny rents have increased 3.5% over the past month, and are up moderately by 3.6% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Ankeny stand at $770 for a one-bedroom apartment and $950 for a two-bedroom. Ankeny's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of -0.1%, as well as the national average of 1.1%.

Ankeny rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

  • Ankeny's median two-bedroom rent of $950 is below the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.1% over the past year compared to the 3.6% rise in Ankeny.
  • While Ankeny's rents rose moderately over the past year, the city of Seattle saw a decrease of 1.3%.
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Ankeny than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,100, which is more than three times the price in Ankeny.

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.
