Paying rent can drain your budget, and new numbers reveal the price of rent went up during the second quarter of this year, ending just a few days ago.
We did a little checking around the Bay area.
For a three bedroom apartment in Tampa, the average rent is $1,130. The average in Sarasota is $40 more than that, and in Lakeland, the average price for a three bedroom place is $810.
The average rent overall is up around $1,100, and that's the highest it's been since 2007.
The reason: Vacancy rates have hit a new 10-year low, with number now around 5 percent.
