  • Median price for 2-bedroom: $4,780

Nationwide, the median rent on a two-bedroom apartment was $1,300 in March, according to a report from ApartmentList.com.

But some cities are facing much steeper rents.

San Francisco has the highest rent in the nation at $4,780. While rents aren't going to get any cheaper, they are expected to slow down a little this year.

"There is a little bit of a tech slowdown which impacts prices...they've started to hit the ceiling," said Andrew Woo, data scientist at ApartmentList.com.
