January 2019 Louisville Rent Report

Welcome to the January 2019 Louisville Rent Report. Louisville rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Louisville rental market, including comparisons to similar cities nationwide.

Louisville rents declined moderately over the past month

Louisville rents have declined 0.3% over the past month, but have increased marginally by 0.6% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Louisville stand at $660 for a one-bedroom apartment and $830 for a two-bedroom. This is the third straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in September. Louisville's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of -0.2%, but trails the national average of 0.9%.

Louisville rents more affordable than many comparable cities nationwide

As rents have increased marginally in Louisville, a few other large cities nationwide have also seen rents grow modestly. Louisville is still more affordable than most similar cities across the country.

  • Louisville's median two-bedroom rent of $830 is below the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 0.9% over the past year compared to the 0.6% increase in Louisville.
  • While Louisville's rents rose marginally over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.3%), New York (+2.7%), and Denver (+2.5%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Louisville than most other large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,090, which is more than three-and-a-half times the price in Louisville.

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.
