Chart of the day – Sep 21, 2017

There is a price for the sunny side. Median rents for Denver, Seattle & Los Angeles, Aug 2017.

Rent in la, seattle, denver

Comparison of 1-, 2-, 3-bedroom rent prices for Denver, Seattle, and Los Angeles. This chart has some interesting data, besides showing comparative rents for large and medium size metro regions. Los Angeles is 30-50% more expensive for the same kind of rental unit compared to Denver & Seattle. These cities are a good representation of how wealth distribution is happening across urban America.

As the 2nd largest US metro with a population of 13.3 million (2016), LA has a huge economic variation. The rent data clearly highlight economic inequality that one would expect in bigger cities. Seattle, as the 15th largest metro at 3.8 million starts to show signs of economic inequality. Denver, at 2.85 million, is the smallest among these three cities and shows much tighter distribution. It is missing the higher end neighborhoods that you see in star-studded LA & the tech hubs of Seattle. However, as more people move from rust-belts of midwest to west, it’s just a matter of time before Denver catches up.

Also, the rental prices for 2-, 3-BDR houses don’t increase proportionally to the size of houses as seen in LA, and in Silicon Valley (as seen in previous chart for Sep 20, 2017). In fact, the 3-BDR house prices in Denver vary by only about 50% across the city. For LA the higher end neighborhoods cost more than three-times the lower end. The 1-BDR rents are even worse at four times, making the rich, job creating neighborhoods inaccessible to workers. This would be one simple explanation for the long commutes in Californian cities. This is why it’s so important to look at this data through different scanners, and I hope the policymakers are listening.
