November 2017 Flint Rent Report

Welcome to the November 2017 Flint Rent Report. Flint rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Flint rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Flint rents declined slightly over the past month

Flint rents have declined 0.3% over the past month, and are down slightly by 0.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Flint stand at $540 for a one-bedroom apartment and $720 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in August. Flint's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 2.4%, as well as the national average of 2.7%.

Rents rising across cities in Michigan

While rent decreases have been occurring in the city of Flint over the past year, cities in the rest of the state are seeing the opposite trend. Rents have risen in 9 of the largest 10 cities in Michigan for which we have data. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 2.4% over the past year. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the state.

  • Looking throughout the state, Dearborn is the most expensive of all Michigan's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,340; of the 10 largest Michigan cities that we have data for, 9 have seen rents rise year-over-year, with Warren experiencing the fastest growth (+7.7%).
  • Dearborn, Ann Arbor, and Westland have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (5.9%, 4.5%, and 2.7%, respectively).

Flint rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

  • Flint's median two-bedroom rent of $720 is below the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.7% over the past year compared to the 0.3% decline in Flint.
  • While rents in Flint fell slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Seattle (+4.2%), Phoenix (+4.1%), and Dallas (+2.6%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Flint than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,070, which is more than four times the price in Flint.

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.
