However, according to Radix’s Share of Wallet Index, which tracks the median household income compared to the average apartment rent at the metro level, most markets remain under the 30% level, meaning that the average household spends 30% or less of its income on rent. This can vary property to property and submarket to submarket, but overall affordability appears balanced in many secondary and sunbelt markets.
