January 2019 Waltham Rent Report

Welcome to the January 2019 Waltham Rent Report. Waltham rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Waltham rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Waltham rents increased over the past month

Waltham rents have remained flat over the past month, however, they have increased sharply by 6.2% year-over-year. Currently, median rents in Waltham stand at $1,710 for a one-bedroom apartment and $2,120 for a two-bedroom. Waltham's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 2.4%, as well as the national average of 0.9%.

    Rents rising across the Boston Metro

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Waltham, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Boston metro, 8 of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    • Brockton has seen rents fall by 5.5% over the past year, the biggest drop in the metro. It also has the least expensive rents in the Boston metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,520.
    • Somerville has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 5.5%. The median two-bedroom there costs $2,100, while one-bedrooms go for $1,690.
    • Cambridge has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Boston metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,240; rents decreased 0.2% over the past month but were up 2.8% over the past year.

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Waltham

    As rents have increased sharply in Waltham, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Compared to most large cities across the country, Waltham is less affordable for renters.

    • Waltham's median two-bedroom rent of $2,120 is above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 0.9% over the past year compared to the 6.2% increase in Waltham.
    • While Waltham's rents rose sharply over the past year, the city of Baltimore saw a decrease of 0.8%.
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Waltham than most large cities. For example, Philadelphia has a median 2BR rent of $1,170, where Waltham is more than one-and-a-half times that price.

    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.
