January 2018 Lafayette Rent Report

Welcome to the January 2018 Lafayette Rent Report. Lafayette rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Lafayette rental market, including comparisons to similar cities nationwide.

Currently, median rents in Lafayette stand at $690 for a one-bedroom apartment and $830 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in October. Lafayette's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.2%, but trails the national average of 2.8%.

Lafayette rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

  • Lafayette's median two-bedroom rent of $830 is below the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.8% over the past year compared to the 2.4% rise in Lafayette.
  • While Lafayette's rents rose moderately over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.8%), Seattle (+3.0%), and Dallas (+2.2%).

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.
