October 2018 Providence Rent Report

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

Providence rents increased moderately over the past month

Providence rents have increased 0.3% over the past month, but have remained steady at 0.1% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Providence stand at $1,020 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,240 for a two-bedroom. This is the third straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in June. Providence's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of -0.9%, but trails the national average of 0.9%.

Providence rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

Rent growth in Providence has been relatively stable over the past year - some other large cities have seen more substantial increases; in contrast, rents in a few cities have actually declined. Providence is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Providence's median two-bedroom rent of $1,240 is above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 0.9% over the past year compared to the stagnant growth in Providence.
  • While rents in Providence remained moderately stable this year, similar cities saw increases, including Phoenix (+2.6%), Atlanta (+1.4%), and San Francisco (+1.1%); note that median 2BR rents in these cities go for $1,050, $1,190, and $3,110 respectively.
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Providence than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,110, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Providence.

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.

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.
