JACKSON HEIGHTS — Neighborhood rents shot up by double-digits for some apartments in April despite an overall decrease in rental prices across Queens, according to a report.
Rents in Jackson Heights overall were up nearly 8 percent, fueled by a "relatively small inventory" compared to other neighborhoods, the report said.
The average two-bedroom rented for $2,560, up from $2,548. Studios and one-bedroom apartments, though, saw a minor decrease in rental costs in April, according to the report.
Neighborhood rents were still less than in other neighborhoods profiled by the real estate company, including Long Island City — where the average two-bedroom apartment rented for $3,791.
Two-bedroom apartments in Ridgewood were the cheapest of the neighborhoods covered, renting for an average of $1,862, according to the report.
