October 2018 Jersey City Rent Report

Welcome to the October 2018 Jersey City Rent Report. Jersey City rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Jersey City rental market, including comparisons to similar cities nationwide.

Jersey City rents increased moderately over the past month

Jersey City rents have increased 0.3% over the past month, and are up moderately by 2.1% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Jersey City stand at $1,610 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,920 for a two-bedroom. This is the eighth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in January. Jersey City's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 0.7%, as well as the national average of 0.9%.

Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Jersey City

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

  • Jersey City's median two-bedroom rent of $1,920 is above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 0.9% over the past year compared to the 2.1% rise in Jersey City.
  • While Jersey City's rents rose moderately over the past year, some cities nationwide saw decreases, including Seattle (-1.6%) and Chicago (-0.9%).
  • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Jersey City than most large cities. For example, Houston has a median 2BR rent of $1,020, where Jersey City 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.
