The last time I moved was several years ago, and I moved from an apartment in the next town over to the apartment where I live currently. At the time, the rent wasn’t the least expensive in town, but it was close.
Last night I discovered the Rentometer, which compares your rent to all renters in your town. The data confirmed what I figured was still true. My rent is still on the low side for the area where I live. Here’s a screenshot of my results, sufficiently disguised so my exact location isn’t apparent. I’m not looking for any stalkers.
According to the map that is displayed along with my results, there probably aren’t enough data to make a very good comparison with the rest of my town. The other locations included in the comparison are mostly out of town.
It is an interesting concept, and it would be nice if it catches on a little more to gather more data.
