May 2019 Baton Rouge Rent Report

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

Baton Rouge rents declined slightly over the past month

Baton Rouge rents have declined 0.2% over the past month, and have decreased slightly by 0.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Baton Rouge stand at $780 for a one-bedroom apartment and $910 for a two-bedroom. Baton Rouge's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of -0.1%, as well as the national average of 1.5%.

    Baton Rouge rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

    • Baton Rouge's median two-bedroom rent of $910 is below the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.5% over the past year compared to the 0.3% decline in Baton Rouge.
    • While rents in Baton Rouge fell slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.9%), Atlanta (+2.4%), and Denver (+2.0%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Baton Rouge than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,100, which is nearly three-and-a-half times the price in Baton Rouge.

    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.
