Buying a home

Top Priciest Markets for Renters


If you like making the landlord’s mortgage payment and increasing that person’s net worth, keep paying rent. According to Zumper, a national apartment rental site, the Washington DC market is the fourth priciest rental market in the country. The average rental price for a one-bedroom apartment in the DC area is $2,050. Yowza!

Here are the Top 10 priciest markets:

  1. San Francisco: $3,350
  2. New York: $3,000
  3. Boston: $2,330
  4. Washington, D.C.: $2,050
  5. Chicago: $1,750
  6. Miami: $1,700
  7. Los Angeles: $1,690
  8. Seattle: $1,610
  9. San Diego: $1,400
  10. Philadelphia: $1,400

These days you can purchase a home with as little as 3% down. Interest rates are hovering around 4%. With low down payments and low interest rates, that monthly rent is more than a mortgage payment. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to put you and your pocketbook first.
