November 2017 Gainesville Rent Report

Welcome to the November 2017 Gainesville Rent Report. Gainesville rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Gainesville rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Gainesville rents declined over the past month

Gainesville rents have declined 0.9% over the past month, but are up slightly by 1.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Gainesville stand at $2,110 for a one-bedroom apartment and $2,440 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in August. Gainesville's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.0%, but trails the national average of 2.7%.

Rents rising across the DC Metro

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Gainesville, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the DC metro, 6 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 $1,480; the city has also experienced the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 2.4%.
  • Over the past year, Waldorf has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 1.3%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,960, while one-bedrooms go for $1,700.
  • Bethesda has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the DC metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,390; rents went down 0.5% over the past month and 0.4% over the past year.

As rents have increased slightly in Gainesville, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more quickly. Compared to most large cities across the country, Gainesville is less affordable for renters.

  • Rents increased moderately in other cities across the state, with Virginia as a whole logging rent growth of 1.0% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 1.8% in Virginia Beach and 1.6% in Norfolk.
  • Gainesville's median two-bedroom rent of $2,440 is above the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.7% over the past year compared to the 1.3% rise in Gainesville.

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.
