Rental Comp Data for August 2014

We've got a vacant rental right now and I went to do some research on rental comps in the area. 

I last reviewed rental comp prices in February 2014.

Here's what I found for current comps on Rentometer.com



A B C D E

and here's the trends :

Jan-13 $900 $995 $510 $460
Aug-13 $905 $925 $500 $480 $1,095
Feb-14 $985 $900 $485 $478 $1,097
Aug-14 $950 $1,025 $485 $565 $1,195

-3.6% 13.9% 0.0% 18.2% 8.9%


Mostly up in the past half year which is good.     By the way I noticed I'd previously had the 'A' property listed as  3 bedroom but its actually a 2 bedroom.  Oops.    Thats the vacant property right now.   Unfortunately that ones on a small downward trend if the Rentometer data is accurate.   But I don't think its all that accurate.  Its a small sample in the  neighborhood and doesn't account for a variety of property factors like whether its a single family home or a basement apartment.   I'm doing more detailed research looking at current and recent listings on Craigslist and Trulia.   That will give me a better picture.
