SEATTLE—Seasonal demand and increased activity are offsetting the wave of new apartments opened this year so far, translating into an even but moderately strong yearly growth across all apartment sizes. The national average rent reached an all-time high of $1,409 in July, up by 2.8% year-over-year ($39), and by 0.2% ($3) month-over-month, according to a RentCafe monthly rent report with data compiled from rents charged in the 250 largest US cities.
