Back in September, Seattle orca-jumped over Honolulu to become the 10th most expensive one-bedroom rental market in the nation. According to the Zumper National Rent Report, the price of a one-bedroom unit in Seattle grew 4 percent from August to September to reach a median of $1,800. Rent for a two-bedroom unit also increased, rising 4.8 percent to hit a median of $2,410.
Now, Zumper, which analyzes over 1 million rental listings to determine national median rental price data, has released an interactive map showing the median rent for each Seattle neighborhood this fall. Unsurprisingly, the most expensive areas are the Central Business District ($2,350), Pike Place Market ($2,180) and Belltown ($2,000).
More affordable neighborhoods, priced at $1,500 per month or less, include Green Lake, Ravenna and Bryant. To find anything under $1,000 per month, renters will have to head to Rainier Beach, Riverview and Georgetown.
Here’s a closer look at the median rent of Seattle’s neighborhoods, with prices differentiated by varying depths of red:
If those prices look high, just be glad you don’t live in San Francisco, the most expensive rental market in the country. This fall, median one-bedroom rent broke $3,800 per month in the city’s three most expensive neighborhoods.
Seattle is certainly becoming less affordable to residents outside of the tech industry. But it’s not San Francisco — yet.
