Tucson Rental Market Statistics 2015

The question of the year, "Should I raise rents?"  My answer always is - it depends.  Each landlord and tenant are different and though the rental market seems to be improving - it generally correlates with the interest rates on home purchases, the time of year, and other factors.

Looking at 2012 - the average rent for a single family residence in Tucson was $598 a month, in 2013, it jumped to $785, and in 2014 dropped to $737.  Perhaps 2015 will bring a rise, but for now, the advice would be to remain stable over incurring a vacancy and check the market again when leases are due to expire.

Below are some highlights from the December Rental Statistics from the Tucson MLS:

 Total Active listings for December - 994

 Number of properties rented this month - 365

 Average monthly rent for Apartments - $433

 Average monthly rent for Condominiums - $795

 Average monthly rent for Mobile Homes - $580

 Average monthly rent for Manufactured Single FamilyResidence’s - $737

 Average monthly rent for Patio Homes - $975

 Average monthly rent for Plex’s - $576

 Average monthly rent for Single Family Residence’s - $1,177

 Average monthly rent for Townhomes - $907

 Average Days on Market - 62
