Here are the metro areas that have enough data accurately show their average:
We have created a tool to find the average rent for the metro areas where we have the most data available to run an accurate average. We are hoping over time this tool will help people price their rentals in with the market value.
There are other average rental tools out there, and as time goes on we plan on adding those averages within our own average to provide a service that will become even more accurate over time. Our goal is to offer the largest set of average rental prices for the most accuracy on the web.
We will also be adding graphs and charts so we can display stats for rental prices by city in a historic fashion to let our readers see the trends in the rental market easily. I think we will call it “Price Distribution Graph”, providing real-time inventory and price information.
We are providing these averages totally free and even include an easy way to embed this information in different formats on your own site (so they will always be up-to-date on your site). You will find the embed code on the city you are interested in.
If you have any suggestions on different formats you would like to see or use, please let us know. We are also thinking of providing monthly rental statistics by zip code so you can search that way as well in the future. Let us know if you don’t like them broken out for apartments, houses, condos and duplexes and you would rather have one lump sum price. Perhaps a or “Cheap Rent Graph” too.
