AUSTIN - Austin's rising rents, like overall housing prices in the region, are not slowing down.

Austin was the 20th-most expensive city in the U.S. for renters in April, according to a blog post from real estate website Zumper.com.

According to the post, one-bedroom units had a median price of $1,150 per month, while two-bedroom units came in at a median price of $1,500.

That's an 11 percent increase over the year-before period for single-bedroom units and a 9 percent increase for two-bedroom units.
