Five Most Expensive Neighborhoods for 2BR Rentals

Kwelia has done it again. After unleashing Philly’s most expensive places to rent in May, the real estate data startup now has a rental-market heatmap that breaks down prices by type of unit. Looking for a one-bedroom? Move the cursor and see which neighborhood will give you the best deal. The number of bathrooms is variable as well.

This particular map will be updated every day as new listings come online. But for right now, today, the most expensive neighborhoods for two-bedroom, one-bath rentals are…

1. Logan Square: $1,765 per month
2. Northern Liberties: $1,700 per month
3. University City: $1,695
4. Callowhill: $1,684
5. Rittenhouse: $1,650

If those results surprise you, remember to take apartment buildings into account. For instance, Goldtex is probably the sole driver for the No. 4 ranking. And Rittenhouse’s increasing number of rentals means there’s more price variation.

But who knows? Tomorrow is another day.
