September 2018 Rochester Rent Report

Welcome to the September 2018 Rochester Rent Report. Rochester rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Rochester rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Rochester rents increase sharply over the past month

Rochester rents have increased 1.4% over the past month, but have remained steady at 0.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Rochester stand at $1,010 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,320 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in June. Rochester's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.1%, as well as the national average of 1.0%.

Rents rising across the Detroit Metro

While rents have remained steady in the city of Rochester throughout the past year, cities across the metro have seen a different trend. Rents have risen in 8 of of the largest 10 cities in the Detroit metro for which we have data. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

  • Taylor has seen rents fall by 1.6% over the past year, the biggest drop in the metro. It also has the least expensive rents in the Detroit metro, with a two-bedroom median of $880.
  • Troy has the most expensive rents in the Detroit metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,320; the city has also seen rent growth of 0.5% over the past month, the fastest in the metro.

Rent growth in Rochester has been relatively stable over the past year - some other large cities have seen more substantial increases; in contrast, rents in a few cities have actually declined. Rochester is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Other cities across the state have seen rents slightly increase, with Michigan as a whole logging rent growth of 1.1% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 1.6% in Lansing and 1.6% in Grand Rapids.
  • Rochester's median two-bedroom rent of $1,320 is above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.0% over the past year compared to the stagnant growth in Rochester.
  • While rents in Rochester remained moderately stable this year, similar cities saw increases, including Las Vegas (+3.1%), Fresno (+1.7%), Charlotte (+1.3%); note that median 2BR rents in these cities go for $1,140, $1,030, and $1,120 respectively.

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.
