The subject of this weeks QuickView (in the spirit of the Big Game!) is a snapshot of average rents in Tampa, FL, and Kansas City, MO. Based upon our analysis, the year-over-year rents in Tampa are outperforming Kansas City.

Our standard City analysis uses a 6-month LookBack” to establish an average baseline rent. The 6-month LookBack analyzes the rent data from the last 6-months, and for this analysis, the rent data included would be from July 1 – January 1. 

The results from the 6-month LookBack analysis are presented in the table below:
