Introducing the
Minneapolis Rental Housing Brief!

What is the Minneapolis Rental Housing Brief
A new monthly report from HousingLink on the state of rental housing in the city of Minneapolis.

Why a Monthly Housing Brief? 
Housing issues in Minneapolis are generating more attention, opinions and controversy than we have seen in our 20 years as a nonprofit operating in Minneapolis. At HousingLink, we've earned a reputation as data and housing information experts without spin or a political agenda.

Well-informed decisions require a clear, data-driven understanding of the issues. This report features solid data, presented artfully to help cut through noise. It exists to help you form an accurate understanding and well-informed opinions.

Here is what you will find in the brief each month:


  • Median rents compared year-over-year.

  • The income required to rent a place based on current rent prices.

  • Vacancies by building type (Apartment, House, Townhome, etc).


  • A comparison of rents in tax credit properties vs. market rate properties.

  • The number of NOAH vacancies.

  • The % of vacancies affordable by income level (30% - 100% AMI)

Subsidized Housing

  • The number of listings that will accept a Housing Choice Voucher.

  • The number of vouchers forfeited. 

  • The number of subsidized waiting list openings.

Rental Housing Stock

  • Rental license information by tier.

The brief also features apartment sales and development data and notable housing facts on affordability, homelessness and more!
