December 2018 Pittsburgh Rent Report

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

Pittsburgh rents increased significantly over the past month

Pittsburgh rents have increased 0.4% over the past month, and have increased slightly by 1.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Pittsburgh stand at $740 for a one-bedroom apartment and $920 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in September. Pittsburgh's year-over-year rent growth is level with both the state and national average which all stands at 1.3%.

Pittsburgh rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have increased slightly in Pittsburgh, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more quickly. Pittsburgh is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Pittsburgh's median two-bedroom rent of $920 is below the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.3% over the past year, which matches the increase in Pittsburgh.
  • While Pittsburgh's rents rose slightly over the past year, the city of Seattle saw a decrease of 0.4%.
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Pittsburgh than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,100, which is more than three times the price in Pittsburgh.

For more information check out our national report. You can also access our full data for cities and counties across the U.S. at this link.

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.
