Seattle Still 8th Most Expensive City To Rent In America

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.
