December 2018 St. Louis Rent Report

Welcome to the December 2018 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 steady over the past month, but are down slightly by 0.3% year-over-year. Currently, median rents in St. Louis stand at $710 for a one-bedroom apartment and $930 for a two-bedroom. St. Louis' year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 0.2%, as well as the national average of 1.3%.

Rents rising across cities in Missouri

While rent decreases have been occurring in the city of St. Louis 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 Missouri for which we have data. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 0.2% 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, Ballwin is the most expensive of all Missouri's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,330; of the 10 largest Missouri cities that we have data for, 9 have seen rents rise year-over-year, with St. Charles experiencing the fastest growth (+2.0%).
  • Ballwin, St. Peters, and Kansas City have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (1.5%, 1.0%, and 1.0%, respectively).

St. Louis rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

  • St. Louis' median two-bedroom rent of $930 is below the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.3% over the past year compared to the 0.3% decline in St. Louis.
  • While rents in St. Louis fell slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.2%), New York (+2.3%), and Denver (+1.9%).

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.
