October 2018 Topeka Rent Report

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

Topeka rents declined over the past month

Topeka rents have remained steady over the past month, but have decreased moderately by 0.9% year-over-year. Currently, median rents in Topeka stand at $580 for a one-bedroom apartment and $770 for a two-bedroom. Topeka's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 0.4%, as well as the national average of 0.9%.

Rents steady across cities in Kansas

While rent decreases have been occurring in the city of Topeka over the past year, trends across other cities in the state have varied. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Kansas, half have seen prices drop while others are seeing them rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 0.4% 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, Lenexa is the most expensive of all Kansas' major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,170; of the 10 largest Kansas cities that we have data for, 5 have seen rents fall year-over-year, with Junction City experiencing the fastest decline (-1.8%).
  • Shawnee, Overland Park, and Lenexa have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (4.6%, 3.3%, and 2.1%, respectively).

Topeka rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have fallen moderately in Topeka, many large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Topeka is also more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Topeka's median two-bedroom rent of $770 is below the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 0.9% over the past year compared to the 0.9% decline in Topeka.
  • While rents in Topeka fell moderately over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+2.6%), Atlanta (+1.4%), and San Francisco (+1.1%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Topeka than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,110, which is more than four times the price in Topeka.

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.
