Rent is on the rise across the country, including in 3 New York cities. But probably not in the places you may think.

Dwellsy, the largest home rental listing platform in the country, reveals twenty cities with the fastest-rising rent. Three of those cities are in New York. It's not the Big Apple like many may assume. It's in places a little closer to home in Upstate New York.

“While year-over-year rent for both single-family home rentals and apartments is up, in most markets price increases have stayed under +10 percent,” says Jonas Bordo, CEO and co-founder of Dwellsy. “But that’s not the case for some unlucky cities, where rent has surged 20, 30, 40, or 50 percent—and in one case, over 100 percent.”

Some Good Rental News

There is some good news. Bordo says apartment prices should stay fairly flat for the rest of 2023.

“The delivery of near-record numbers of new apartments will impact median asking rent in some markets, but overall, increased supply will nudge price trends in renters’ favor.”
