Apartments.com National Survey Reveals Economic Uncertainty Drives Renters To Make Cautious Decisions In 2013

The opinions of others seem to play a more important role in searches than in previous years. More than half of respondents said they use review websites during their apartment search versus 32.6 percent in 2012, and 45.1 percent relied on word of mouth versus 31.5 percent in 2012.

Who will renters share their apartments with in 2013?

One area that seems to be a constant is renter living arrangements, which is nearly identical this year to the results of the 2012 survey:
  1. Husband/wife/significant other and/or kids: 49.6%
  2. Living alone: 40.3%
  3. Roommate(s): 10.1%

As part of its What Renters Want series, Apartments.com surveys renters on various topics throughout the year. For more information on these surveys or to receive a copy of the results, please contact Matt Miller at matt@salmonborre.com.
