    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.

    September 2020 Vernon Hills Rent Report

    Welcome to the September 2020 Vernon Hills Rent Report. Vernon Hills rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Vernon Hills rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

    Vernon Hills rents decline sharply over the past month

    Vernon Hills rents have declined 1.0% over the past month, and are down significantly by 2.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Vernon Hills stand at $1,325 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,558 for a two-bedroom. This is the third straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in May. Vernon Hills' year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of -0.1%, as well as the national average of 0.3%.

      Rent trends vary across the Chicago Metro

      While rent prices have decreased in Vernon Hills over the past year, the rest of the metro is seeing varying rent trends. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Chicago metro, half have seen increases, while the other half have been decreasing. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

      • Joliet has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 1.9%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,133, while one-bedrooms go for $963.
      • Over the past year, Arlington Heights has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 1.8%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,459, while one-bedrooms go for $1,240.
      • Naperville has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Chicago metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,769; rents went down 0.1% over the past month and 0.4% over the past year.
      • Gary has the least expensive rents in the Chicago metro, with a two-bedroom median of $929; rents grew 0.3% over the past month but decreased 1.2% over the past year.

      Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Vernon Hills

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

      • Although rents across cities in Illinois have been moderately on the rise, the state's growth as a whole has held steady over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 2.8% in Springfield and 1.5% in Rockford.
      • Vernon Hills' median two-bedroom rent of $1,558 is above the national average of $1,195. Nationwide, rents have held steady over the past year.
      • While rents in Vernon Hills fell significantly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Columbus (+1.0%) and Detroit (+0.8%).
      • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Vernon Hills than most large cities. For example, Springfield has a median 2BR rent of $730, where Vernon Hills is more than twice that price.
