Personal finance advisors and columnists often recommend that no more than 25% to 30% of your take-home pay should go to your landlord. Based on this general rule of thumb, if your income is $40,000 a year, your monthly rent should not exceed $1,000 a month.

But, thanks in part to a nationwide housing crunch, Americans would be hard pressed in many U.S. cities to keep their rental costs within this ideal limit. A limited supply of rental properties disproportionately hammers lower-income renters, who are often competing for a limited inventory of affordable housing options.

According to a 2022 joint report from the nonprofit housing trade association groups, National Apartment Association and the National Multifamily Housing Council, Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach ranks among the least affordable markets for renters.

The report found that 53% of Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach renters pay at least 35% of their income on housing – ranking the metro area one of only 16 among the 50 reviewed where more than 40% of renters are cost-burdened by housing.

All data in this story is from the 2022 report, U.S. Apartment Demand Through 2035, a 2022 report prepared by real estate consulting groups Hoyt Advisory Services and Eigen 10 Advisors.
