Untapped Luxury

Along with identifying the metros with the most luxury apartments listed on the site, Apartment Guide also determined the number of web visits the luxury community listings in those metros received between April 14 and July 14, 2014.

Surprisingly, over this three-month period, the 56 luxury communities in the Detroit metro area only received eight visits on Apartment Guide. Renters in the Houston metro area also are passing up the luxury options – luxury communities that area only received 90 visits on the site in the time period studied. Think of all those fabulous amenities that are going unused!

On the other hand, renters in the Northeast really have their pick of luxury places — the Washington, DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York metro areas all made the list for having the most number of luxury apartments. But East Coasters are far surpassed by the Los Angeles and Dallas / Fort Worth metro areas for the number of renters interested in these homes. Carry on, you fabulous people.
