Renting an apartment in Seattle isn’t getting any easier. According to Zumper, the median price of a one-bedroom in the month of March jumped 2.9 percent to $1,750 per month.

If you’re in the market for a two-bedroom apartment, rental prices have improved — but only slightly. Two bedrooms are down a mere 0.4 percent to $2,350 per month. For the month of March, Seattle held steady as the 10th most expensive rental market in the nation behind Chicago and ahead of San Diego.

Just be grateful you don’t live in San Francisco where living in a one-bedroom costs $3,590 per month, on average, while a two-bedroom is $4,850. If you’re tired of dumping your paycheck into your apartment, consider moving to Wichita, Kansas where you can rent a one-bedroom for a modest $450 per month. You could live for almost four months in Wichita on what it costs to live one month in Seattle.
