“A year out from the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in the US, the rental market has shifted. Notably, rent prices dropped dramatically in the country’s most expensive cities and went up in historically cheaper, mid-sized cities. This change was largely brought on by a migration of people out of larger cities in 2020 for various reasons stemming from the pandemic.”
