City Guide
Dayton
Downtown Dayton’s Historic ‘Hoods

No matter what area you zero in on, expect some competition for vacant units. Serious prospectors should arrive early to open houses and bring along the necessary paperwork (ie: checkbook.) Big city transplants will find most area rents to be obscenely low, but should bear in mind the fact that many of Dayton’s older properties have not been renovated or restored and can often lack modern upgrades.

Oregon District This sub-section of southeast Dayton is the city’s current arty “hot zone” for renters. Chock full of galleries, pubs, coffee shops and shopping opps - it’s walkable

Grafton Hill Historic District This eighborhood offers single-family homes and “doubles” (local slang for two-family homes) in the Queen Anne, Classical Revival, Craftsman, and Victorian styles as well as a smattering of totally non-historic apartment complexes.

South Park The area offers easy access to practically everything, along with a wide array of both rentals and renters.

St. Anne’s Hill Competition is moderate in this up-and-coming ‘hood.

Twin Towers Rents in the area are low.

Hope these Dayton tidbits help, best of luck in your apartment search!

July 2017 Dayton Rent Report

Welcome to the July 2017 Dayton Rent Report. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Dayton rental market, including comparisons to similar cities nationwide.

Dayton rents have increased 0.2% over the past month, and are up moderately by 3.9% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Dayton stand at $650 for a one-bedroom apartment and $840 for a two-bedroom. This is the tenth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in August of last year. Dayton's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 3.2%, as well as the national average of 2.9%.

Dayton rents more affordable than many other large cities nationwide

As rents have increased in Dayton, a few similar cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Dayton is still more affordable than most comparable cities across the country.

  • Dayton's median two-bedroom rent of $840 is below the national average of $1,150. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.9% over the past year.
  • While Dayton's rents rose over the past year, some cities nationwide saw decreases, including Miami (-1.1%) and San Francisco (-0.6%).

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.
