October 2018 Evanston Rent Report

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

Evanston rents declined significantly over the past month

Evanston rents have declined 0.4% over the past month, and are down slightly by 0.4% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Evanston stand at $1,300 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,530 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in July. Evanston's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of -0.3%, as well as the national average of 0.9%.

Rents falling across the Chicago Metro

Rent prices have been decreasing not just in Evanston over the past year, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities in the Chicago metro for which we have data, 6 of them have seen prices drop. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

  • Elgin has the least expensive rents in the Chicago metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,160; the city has also seen rents fall by 1.1% over the past year, the biggest drop in the metro.
  • Palatine has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 1.5%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,340, while one-bedrooms go for $1,140.
  • Naperville has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Chicago metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,750; rents fell 0.1% over the past month but remained flat year-over-year.

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.
