Rents reach peak point

According to RENTCafe, rents rose 0.9 percent from May to June and were up nearly 3 percent over the year. That equates to about $40 more dollars per month, on average.

Rents also increased in 88 percent of America’s largest metros. Only 10 percent of cities saw rents hold steady, while just 2 percent saw a slight decline.

It appears size doesn’t matter, either. Rents rose 2.8 percent or more on studio apartments, one-bedrooms, two-bedrooms and three-bedrooms over the year, and about 1 percent since May.
