SLC in Top 20

Per Zillow, Salt Lake City is #20 in the list of the 20 most affordable rental markets in the United States at an average monthly rent of $1,656. In the state of California, the average state-wide rent is $1,927 (no specific cities in California were addressed). The state of Hawaii holds the highest average rent honor but the article does not provide the amount. Nor does the article define the city with the highest average rent in the United States. At the other end of the spectrum, Buffalo, NY comes in as the most affordable city in which to rent at an average rental amount $1,282. Salt Lake’s rent grew by 1.60% over the last 12 months per the article. I was staggered by the statement that since the pandemic began (March-2020), and through February 2024, average rents have increased by 23.6% across the country.
