Data on average rents is deceiving. Newer or renovated rental buildings (the one next to Opera Place, or Jazz, for instance) are closer to condo rents.
Yeah, I don't know what the numbers are exactly. But I think my hunch that rental rents would be lower than condo rents is that many people who can afford a $1500+ monthly rent, which is what I see most condo rents start at, likely won't be long term renters, as they'll eventually be able to afford to enter a buyer's market. The many others who can't afford to buy, therefore, would be renting at a lower monthly rate. I'd say the average apartment rent is around $1100. But just a guess; I dunno.
