house Rent Prices for Two and Three-Bedroom Homes Rising the Fastest.

Monthly rent for two and three-bedroom homes are appreciating 2.8 percent annually, which is faster than one-bedroom homes and the nation as a whole.

  • Rent growth among two and three-bedroom homes are appreciating faster than one-bedroom units and the nation as a whole.
  • Rent prices rose 2.8 percent over the past year among both two-bedroom and three-bedroom homes. Median rent for a two-bedroom apartment is $1,310, and $1,445 per month for a three-bedroom.
  • Renters looking for a one-bedroom can expect to pay $1,275 per month, up 2.2 percent over the past year.

The average rent in the U.S. is $1,480, up 2.5 percent from a year ago.

As rent continues to rise, it’s becoming more difficult for renters to keep up with costs. With rent among two and three-bedroom rentals rising the fastest, renters who need more space face an even tighter affordability crunch.

In Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and Austin – all markets that have seen substantial new apartment construction in recent years – median rent for a two or three-bedroom home is appreciating about twice as fast as a one-bedroom home. Median rent for two and three-bedroom homes in Chicago and San Antonio are also appreciating quickly, more than 80 percent faster than one-bedroom rents.

Though two and three-bedroom rents are appreciating quickly, the financial incentives for living with a roommate remain strong. Sharing a two-bedroom rental with one person is still about half the cost of renting a solo one-bedroom unit.
