Apartment rents in Kent jumped 6.8 percent in 2017 compared to 2016.

A median two-bedroom unit in Kent rents for $1,740 per month, up 6.8 percent from 2016, according to Apartment List, a San Francisco-based company. In comparison, the national median two-bedroom rent is $1,160, up 2.7 percent from last year. The median one-bedroom rate in Kent is $1,400, which means about half the rents are higher than that price and half are lower.

With the U.S. renter population growing quickly – now about 37 percent of U.S. households – Apartment List aims to provide data-backed research to keep renters informed.
