Analysis: Rents in Honolulu 13th-highest in the nation

By Taryn Mitchell HNN Summer Intern

Honolulu is the 13th most expensive city for renters.

That's according to new figures from Zumper, a rental website and analysis firm based in San Francisco.

In August, the median rent for a one-bedroom in Honolulu is $1,660, Zumper said.

The median for a two-bedroom is $2,200.

While rents in Honolulu remain pricey compared to other cities, they are on a downward trend, Zumper said.

The median rent for a one-bedroom is down nearly 8 percent from a year ago, while two-bedroom rents are nearly flat.

Here's a look at the median rents for a one-bedroom in the nation's priciest cities:

  • San Francisco: $3,500
  • New York: $2,900
  • San Jose: $2,550
  • Boston: $2,340
  • Los Angeles: $2,330
  • Washington, DC: $2,150
  • Oakland: $2,100
  • Seattle: $1,960
  • San Diego: $1,850
  • Miami: $1,780

Denver, the 16th priciest city, had the largest monthly growth rate for one-bedroom rent. The most affordable city? Akron, Ohio.
