The pandemic had an impact on rent prices in major cities and neighborhoods across the U.S. To quantify the impact, we’re focusing attention on some of the major cities and neighborhoods in the U.S. We will be presenting our findings in a series of year-over-year neighborhood snapshots.

The subject of today’s snapshot is Cleveland, Ohio. Based on our analysis, Cleveland year-over-year average rents have varied depending on bedroom type.   

Our standard City analysis uses a 12-month LookBack” to establish an average baseline rent. The 12-month LookBack analyzes the rent data from the last 12-months, and for this analysis, the rent data included would be from June 1, 2020 – June 1, 2021.

The results from the 12-month LookBack analysis are presented in the table below:

As the table shows, 1BR units increased by 10% from last year or $90 more. While the 2BR increased by 18% or $185 more, and 3BR units saw no change in rent price from 2020-2021. As demonstrated by the table, the year-over-year performance of 1BR and 2BR increased while 3BR units remained unchanged in Cleveland, Ohio.
