As Rental Prices Rise Television News Mentions Edge Up Again

As rental prices continue to increase across the nation, mentions of them on television news have been increasing since a low point this past March and while they remain above their 2012-2017 lows, they remain below their pandemic highs. May 2020 represented peak rental mentions since November 2010, with a steady decline since, but mentions are slowly climbing again.

Business channels have begun mentioning rental costs more as well since April of this year, but remains remain depressed compared with the past decade, suggesting less business press focus.
