Real estate website Zumper is back with their November report on the state of monthly rent around the U.S. For the fourth-straight month, San Francisco has the most-expensive one-bedrooms in the nation's major cities while Seattle held strong to it's spot at No. 8 on that list. Seattle's median 1-BR rent was $1,610, up a whole $10 from last month, while the median 2-BR rent was $2,230, up $30 month-over-month. The median price-per-bedroom of Seattle rentals stayed steady at $1,400, which is actually tied for the sixth-highest in the U.S with Los Angeles.
When the list is expanded beyond major cities, Seattle actually shows up behind Kirkland ($1,730/mo. for 1-BR), Bellevue ($1,700/mo.) and Mercer Island ($1,660/mo.). Looking for a place full of cheaper listings? Head to Redmond, where the median 1-BR rents for $1,420/mo.
