Rent Price Growth Outpaces Home Price Growth

At 11.5%, National rent growth reached double digits for the first time in August, when it began to outpace home price growth, according to Realtor.com. Nationally, last month marked the fifth straight month of double‑digit rent growth compared with the previous year, when rents grew more slowly than normal because of the pandemic, according to Realtor.com. Rents were up about 20% in November over 2021. The median rent in the Philadelphia metropolitan area is up 11% from last year to $1,768. Of the country‚Äôs 50 largest metropolitan areas, 47 had double-digit rent growth in November. If you have been delaying a decision to move from renting to owning, give us a call.
