Phoenix Rent Hits Record High of $1,915

The U.S. Median rental price hit a new high ($1,827) for the 14th month in a row, according to the Monthly Rental Report. Metro Phoenix’s rent price exceeded the national numbers, with a median rental price of $1,915, a 20.1% year-over-year increase.

Metro Phoenix Rent Increases:

  • The Phoenix median rent price of a studio apartment is $1,429, a 20.4% year-over-year increase.
  •  The median rental price of a one-bedroom apartment is $1,650, a 20.7% year-over-year increase.
  • The Phoenix median rent price of a two-bedroom apartment is $2,225, a 14.7% year-over-year increase

Nationally, studio rents grew at a faster year-over-year pace (+17.2%) than one-bedrooms (+15.6%) and two-bedrooms (+15.9%).  This is largely due to the ongoing rental market comeback in major downtowns where smaller living spaces are common, with studio rents up double-digits over April 2021 in all 10 of the biggest tech hubs

According to the latest report, national rents continue their record-breaking increases. Experts cite the increases to lower rental supply, rising demands, inflation, and housing supply shortage. If these trends continue, national asking rents will surpass 2022’s forecasted year-over-year growth projections (+7.1%) by end of the year.
