Rents in the nation’s 25 biggest rental markets have fallen slightly in the last year. But many metro areas, especially Oakland, Orange County, Calif., and Phoenix, are seeing affordable listings disappear. Meanwhile, Miami, New York, and San Francisco are still home to the nation’s least-affordable rental markets with sky-high rents. First, the good news: Rents in the nation’s top 25 rental markets have dropped slightly. The bad news? For the most part, rental homes are still expensive and in some places rental costs are rising. We conducted a follow up study to our analysis on how high rents were at the end of last year. We found that rents in the 25 metro areas with the largest rental markets declined 1.6% from 2015 to 2016. But relative to historical pricing, rents are still very high, and have become less affordable in areas that had been financially accessible. Proportion of Affordable Rental Listings
