September 2017 Baton Rouge Rent Report

Welcome to the September 2017 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 over the past month

Baton Rouge rents have declined 1.6% over the past month, but have increased significantly by 4.7% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Baton Rouge stand at $800 for a one-bedroom apartment and $930 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in June. Baton Rouge's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 2.4%, as well as the national average of 3.0%.

Baton Rouge rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have increased in Baton Rouge, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Baton Rouge is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Baton Rouge's median two-bedroom rent of $930 is below the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 3.0% over the past year compared to the 4.7% rise in Baton Rouge.
  • While Baton Rouge's rents rose over the past year, the city of Miami saw a decrease of 0.4%.

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.

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.
