Las Vegas Apartments – City Ranks High with Most Apartment Space in USA

Las Vegas Apartments

By Goldenwest Management

LAS VEGAS – Thanks to a recent article from and Rent Jungle we know that Las Vegas Apartments are considerted to be the most spacious in the United States for what renters here are paying per square foot. 

The study was limited to Class A properties, or the 20% of properties with the highest rents in a market. The value was ranked by the average rent per square foot in each metro area. And, because not all Class A properties are created equal – a top-of-the-line building in New York is a lot different in terms of square footage and price than one in, for example, Memphis – we separated the findings into five regions.

Right now Las Vegs apartments are currently averaging $1.07 per square foot or $1,062 per square feet and this makes apartments in Las Vegas seem huge in comparison to other cities including New York where the latest trend in apartments is “micro apartments” because many units there are currently priced at $2,000 per month for apartments that have roughly 200 to 500 square feet of space.

Average Las Vegas Rent

As of March 2016 the average Las Vegas apartment is renting for $1,063 per month for a two bedroom apartment while a one bedroom apartment in Las Vegas is renting for $883 per month.

Just outside of Las Vegas you can find apartments that are renting for $1,067 per month.

Rents in Las Vegas should remain stable for the next few months but they are expected to increase in the coming months as the weather warms up and more people relocate to Las Vegas from other states including California.
