Map: Neighborhoods With the Highest Rents

Median prices according to zip code.

Last months’s national rental rates rose by 3 percent year-over-year — but not in Philadelphia. According to Trulia, the city’s rents actually decreased by .1% percent (hey, it’s something) and the city is among the top 25 rental markets in the country.

The above map is the result of a year’s worth of collected data and shows median prices according to zip code. Those colored in red are the highest, while green displays the lowest. The highest rentals appear to have clustered around Center City ($1,850) and Rittenhouse Row ($1,750).




Last July, Kwelia (which did a rental-market heat map before it was cool) named Logan Square and Northern Liberties as the areas with highest rental medians. Back then Logan Square averaged to $1,765, while NoLibs came in at $1,700. Trulia's map says the current median for those neighborhoods are $1,700 and $1,225, respectively.

      Another “speculator” waiting on the sidelines for the “right price” that never comes. Just let the adults talk and you keep watching “Income Property” and dreaming of being the next Trump.
