As a follow up to my article about apartment rentals in Las Vegas I found this and wanted to link to it.
Apartment rent natinwide is likely to rise by 3.6 percent this year according to http://money.usnews.com/money/blogs/flowchart/2011/05/11/10-cities-with-the-flattest-rents.
In some cities though rent still remains a bargain. That could mean that homes are cheap and it make smore sense to buy than rent. Or it could reflect too many apartment comlexers and a high vacancy rate. Sometimes this happens when there are economical problems or when the population of a city is shrinking. It could be that the area is just a bad plact live, maybe there is a high crime rate or maybe there are no jobs.
Most of the cities on this list are still having problems related to the recession.
