Zumper’s analyses cull from available and vacant units, so they are pretty solid snapshots of where the apartment market stands at points.
Cedar Park, Dunlap, and Haddington saw the biggest median rent declines in Philadelphia during that same winter-to-winter period. See the heatmap below for a breakout of Philly-area rent increases and declines.
