On average, those renewal leases are at prices 4.6% higher than initial rents. Las Vegas is the spot where renewal lease price growth is highest. Renters there are paying 6% more on average to remain in the same apartment. Renewal lease price growth runs just a hair under 6% in Sacramento, Tampa, Phoenix and San Diego.
