Rental Vacancy Map

As more and more sellers decide to just “rent it out”, I figured it would be interesting to watch vacancy rates. An increase in rentals should ease the tight vacancy rate we’ve been seeing in many cities.

I couldn’t find a regularly updated chart of this anywhere, but I found ApartmentList shares their data! So this chart uses ApartmentList vacancy index and rent estimates. You can read more about their methodology at those links. It’s important to note that it’s hard to collect these stats accurately, harder than MLS data.

If you’d like to support me on my quest to plumb the depths of real estate data and update these visuals more frequently, I’d appreciate it! Tableau is expensive.

All data from ApartmentList.
