What’s the average rent in major cities?

Last Updated on

In recent years, the urban housing crisis has made living in cities less affordable for more people. The average rent for a one-bedroom apartment across major U.S. cities – New York, San Francisco, LA, Chicago, Washington, DC, and Seattle — prove just that.

At Common, you can, instead, save hundreds of dollars on rent without living in the outskirts of town with an hour-long commute.

Rent in New York vs. Common

As of March 2019, rents for one-bedroom apartments in New York range between $2700 and $2900 per month. The cost depends highly on which borough and neighborhood you live in, but rents generally don’t fall below $2000 in Manhattan or Brooklyn.

At Common, we have fully furnished homes in Crown Heights for $1,300, Hamilton Heights for $1,600, and Ridgewood for $1,475. On average, our homes across New York rent for $1,600. Not only do you save on rent this way, but you also get free WiFi, free laundry (and detergent), free household essentials, free weekly cleaning, incredible amenities (like a gym and rooftop deck), and utilities included in your rent.
