More and more affluent Americans are opting to rent homes in hip neighborhoods of major cities instead of shipping off to the suburbs. While earlier generations saved up to buy a suburban house, these days, those with money are often paying a premium to live in areas packed with delicious restaurants, prestigious cultural institutions, and exciting nightlife. In order to identify where affluent renters-by-choice are deciding to live, HomeUnion compiled a list of the neighborhoods with the highest average rent across the United States.

The list shows the most expensive neighborhoods where more than a quarter of the real estate market is rental stock. While only the wealthiest Americans are likely to find this list useful as a house-hunting tool, HomeUnion’s findings give fascinating insights into the neighborhoods affluent renters consider most desirable. Plus, if you’re currently looking to rent a home in a major city, the list usefully pinpoints some of the areas you might want to avoid if you’re not willing to shell out big bucks on rent.
