When faced with the decision to rent a new place, city dwellers have to make the choice of which season makes most sense for them. While piling personal items into a U-Haul during a January snowstorm doesn’t sound like the most stress-free experience, sometimes it means paying significantly less each month.

  • October is the most expensive month to rent in Houston.
  • Seasonal rental prices range more than 4 percent in the most versus the least expensive times of the year.

When faced with the decision to rent a new place, city dwellers have to make the choice of which season makes most sense for them. While piling personal items into a U-Haul during a January snowstorm doesn’t sound like the most stress-free experience, sometimes it means paying significantly less each month.

RentHop recently crunched the data to determine the relative seasonal rent differences for each month out of the year. And even in the warmest of climates, the holiday season tends to be the perfect time of year for renters to find a great deal.

October is the most expensive month of the year to rent in Houston. Rents are completely flat in September for relative seasonality following a few months of inflated prices.

From November through April, Houston renters will find prices to be below the neutral line, with January being the most affordable month out of the year to rent. Renters will pay a difference of more than 4 percent finding a place in October compared with January.
