    Back in 2001-02, the economy was also in the dumps. My rent dropped about 15% during that time.

    No, if anything rent could go up because the owner might be in a bunch him/herself! It could go either ways. The price of renting is just going up period.


  3. waia2000 Says:

    It’s possible that an owner will not be able to rent for the amount the place had been renting for, so they have to lower the rent to get a tenant.

    That happened to a place that I moved out of because they kept jacking up the rent so much. I watched it happen in the classified ads.

    I’ve never seen that happen. And I would find it highly unlikely. Best you could hope for is maybe some kind of deal….like one month free with a year lease or perhaps pay a smaller deposit. Check around. If you have been watching the ads, find an apartment complex which looks like they are having a hard time renting. Maybe they will throw in a free garage stall with the deal. Never hurts to ask.


  5. mike1942f Says:

    Once they have you in, they almost never lower the rent – taxes and other costs don’t down. What usually happens is they delay rent increases because they and other complexes are offering special deals to fill empty apartments (first month free, etc.) If you find this kind of offer is going on, you might ask for a free month after you have been in place for a year or two.


  6. Todd D Says:

    typically the rent will stay the same or rise at the same level in an apartment you currently live in. However if a recession does settle in then the rent of an unoccupied apt. may be less than it would be otherwise. A recession IS a good time for bargain huntin and also a good opportunity to put the squeeze on your current landlord. Ask for a rent reduction if unemployment goes beyond 7%…it will be hard to find renters in that environment.


  7. matt d Says:

    the economy is not going into a recession. so dont worry about it.


  8. Ray H Says:

    As the economy slows, and unemployment raises, people who own their own home will be forced to sell and seek apartments or homes to rent. That will keep rental properties at current or higher prices. So, don’t count on a recession to help you with your rent.

    Look for a second or higher paying job if at all possible.


  9. Big Deal Maker Says:

    That all depends on what city you live in really. In the city i live in the rents have increased.
    12 years ago.. an average 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment was renting at $ 650.00 per month. Today the same apartment is now renting at $ 1100.00 per month.
