National apartment listing site ABODO recently reported that the median nationwide rent price for one-bedroom units in August was $1,075 with two-bedroom units coming in at $1,360. They say the trend they identified in July (where decliners were moving more sharply downward than gainers) has become less pronounced in both one and two-bedrooms. ABODO uses over 1 million listings across the United States to calculate the median 1-bedroom rent price by city, state, and nation and then track the month-over-month percentage change. To avoid small sample sizes, they restrict their analysis to cities meeting minimum population and property count thresholds. Be sure to check out their extensive city list.
