With rental firm Zumper's fall report, two important takeaways: Philadelphia is now the 15th-most-expensive rental city in the nation and median University City rents have crested $1,900 a month.
The report shows that the median rent for a one-bedroom in Philadelphia is now $1,400 (up 4.5 percent from last month). Two-bedroom median rents are up more than 12 percent compared with this time last year, at $1,570. At its position as 15th-most-expensive city in the country for renters, Philadelphia is immediately behind Providence, Rhode Island. San Francisco remains at the top of the list, with median monthly rentals at $3,420.
Locally, Logan Square and Center City West aren't far behind University City with median one-bedroom rental rates at $1,830 and $1,800, respectively. For rents less than $1,000 monthly, options will be more abundant in Point Breeze, parts of South Philadelphia and further afield in West Philadelphia.
