No amount of complaining will lower rent in hot markets

Rent prices are down nationwide but continue to increase in popular metros
  • According to Trulia's report on April rental markets, Miami, San Francisco and New York remain some of the least affordable rental markets in the country.
  • Rent declined 1.6 percent nationally in April.
  • Chicago and Houston's share of affordable units were relatively high compared to other top metros.

If it pays to be cool, Miami is the James Dean of real estate markets. Living in the exploding city and other popular metros, all of which are home to some of the most advanced condominiums and apartments in the world, comes at a cost.
