November 2018 Arlington Rent Report

Welcome to the November 2018 Arlington Rent Report. Arlington rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Arlington rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Arlington rent trends were flat over the past month

Arlington rents have remained flat over the past month, however, they have increased moderately by 2.7% year-over-year. Currently, median rents in Arlington stand at $1,800 for a one-bedroom apartment and $2,080 for a two-bedroom. Arlington's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.4%, as well as the national average of 1.1%.

Rents rising across the DC Metro

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Arlington, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the DC metro, all of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

  • Frederick has the least expensive rents in the DC metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,540; the city has also experienced the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 3.6%.
  • Over the past month, Centreville has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 1.0%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,880, while one-bedrooms go for $1,620.
  • Bethesda has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the DC metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,440; rents went down 0.4% over the past month but rose 2.2% over the past year.

Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Arlington

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

  • Rents increased marginally in other cities across the state, with Virginia as a whole logging rent growth of 1.4% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 0.1% in Norfolk.
  • Arlington's median two-bedroom rent of $2,080 is above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.1% over the past year compared to the 2.7% increase in Arlington.
  • While Arlington's rents rose moderately over the past year, the city of Seattle saw a decrease of 1.3%.
  • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Arlington than most large cities. For example, Norfolk has a median 2BR rent of $950, where Arlington is more than twice 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.
