How Rental Terms Can Reveal What’s Popular in Each State

Rental termsPotential home buyers in Arkansas and Washington, D.C. are interested in finding retail with their rental homes. Landlords who are posting listings in D.C. are more likely to include the “Starbucks” in the listing. The phrase, “close to Walmart” is 54% more likely to appear in an Arkansas listing than anywhere else in the US.

Renters in New Hampshire aren’t interested in either of these things in their listings. What are they looking for? They are more interested in technology, which is why “USB Port” is 287 times more likely to appear in a rental listing. Other states that focus on technology include Oregon, where “free WiFi” is sought after. “Google fiber” is incredibly popular in Missouri.

In California, landlords are more likely to show off their fruit trees. If you’re in Colorado, you can bet that rentals with a particular five leafed plant that Mary Jane plants herself (wink wink). Renters who are looking for a place in Illinois that are interested in finding a place where they can relax and have fun outside look for listings with “forest preserve” in their listing.

New York rentals that go fast are more likely to have a listing that states there is “closet space,” which is no surprise considering how small some NYC apartments can be. However, people in North Carolina could care less about indoor space, as they are more interested in finding something with plenty of “outside storage.”

Landlords in New Mexico who are listing a rental property make sure that they list if their property has a fireplace—extra points go to them if “kiva fireplace” is specified. Wisconsin renters, on the other hand, still like hot stuff, but they prefer “gas grill” so they can make some delicious food.
