Washington, D.C. continues to be one of the priciest U.S. cities to rent in, according to the latest national rent report from Zumper. This past February, the median monthly rent for a one-bedroom apartment was $2,170, up 1.9 percent month over month and 8.5 percent year over year. For two-bedrooms, the median monthly rent rose to $3,000, up 2.4 percent month over month and 8.3 percent year over year. Los Angeles is gaining on the District, only a few hundred away from stealing the ranking as the sixth most expensive U.S. city to rent in, but don't hold your breath.
To create each rental report, Zumper analyzes over 1 million listings in the U.S. on a monthly basis. If interested in taking a closer look at the full report, be sure to see the document here.
