NeighborhoodScout’s statisticians have implemented a method that takes away the effect of public housing and subsidized housing, which provides an average rental price that is reflective of only market rate rental units. This makes a significant difference in areas where public housing with very low rents exists adjacent to market rate housing with much higher rents. 

At this time, NeighborhoodScout does not have information readily available for appreciation rates for buyers who purchase properties with multiple units, and we do not have data reflective of the appreciation trends concerning average market rent over time. Market rent is not indicative of past or future appreciation.
