Rental firm Abodo brings slightly better news than Zumper, reporting that the median one-bedroom rent actually fell since last month. Its calculation puts the dip at 0.08 percent, down to $1,309. Two-bedroom rents stand at about $1,620, up 1 percent exactly. These trends sort of buck the national figures, which indicate meager growth in the one-bedroom market (up 0.57 percent) and a 0.08 percent increase for two-bedrooms.
In the national rent report from Abodo, cities in the South are seeing the biggest increases — Jacksonville, Florida; Nashville, Tennessee; and Savannah, Georgia, are at the top of the list. Meanwhile, Columbus, Ohio tops out the biggest decrease, with a 9.2 percent dip since last month.
