RentCast compiles real-time and historical rental data for nearly all US zip codes, allowing you to view average rent statistics, market composition and historical rent trends for any market in the country.

You can use this information to help you research new investment areas, keep track of local market trends, and assist with leasing rental properties you own.

Note: rental market insights are a premium feature, available with the RentCast Pro plan. This upgrade is required to view these reports.

Any time you view property data in our app, scroll down past the property rent estimates and comps to see the rental market data for that property's zip code:
