September 2019 St. Louis Rent Report

Welcome to the September 2019 St. Louis Rent Report. St. Louis rents remained steady over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the St. Louis rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

St. Louis rents held steady over the past month

St. Louis rents have remained flat over the past month, however, they are up marginally by 0.7% year-over-year. Currently, median rents in St. Louis stand at $723 for a one-bedroom apartment and $938 for a two-bedroom. St. Louis' year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 0.8%, as well as the national average of 1.5%.

    Rents rising across cities in Missouri

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of St. Louis, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Missouri, 8 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 0.8% 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, Chesterfield is the most expensive of all Missouri's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,365; of the 10 largest cities in the state that we have data for, Columbia, where a two-bedroom goes for $721, is the only major city to see rents fall year-over-year (-0.3%).
    • Chesterfield, St. Peters, and St. Charles have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (9.4%, 3.8%, and 1.0%, respectively).

    St. Louis rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

    • St. Louis' median two-bedroom rent of $938 is below the national average of $1,191. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.5% over the past year compared to the 0.7% rise in St. Louis.
    • While St. Louis' rents rose marginally over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.7%), Dallas (+2.0%), and New York (+1.7%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in St. Louis than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,133, which is more than three times the price in St. Louis.

    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.


    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.
