Increasing Rents in Downtown Pensacola
Downtown Pensacola, FL rental rates

We've all noticed the increase in rental rates in the Downtown Pensacola area over the past few years. We decided to dig into the data to see exactly how much rents have increased. Overall, single family rents in downtown Pensacola (zip codes 32501 and 32502) have increased approximately 25% over the past 5 years. In comparison, the average Pensacola area rental rates has increased approximately 13% over the last 5 years. That means that Downtown Pensacola rents are increasing nearly 2 times the amount as the overall area rental rate.

The average asking price today on Pensacola MLS for a single family rental in Downtown Pensacola is $1,422! A lot of these properties are new construction homes which of course come with a higher price tag. The rising rates in the Downtown Pensacola area are marking it harder to find an affordable downtown rental.

What do you think are other factors contributing to this steep increase? Here are a few of our observations:

  • Ongoing Downtown Pensacola revitalization
  • Increase in new construction
  • Renovations on existing properties
  • Increasing rental rates overall

We will continue to monitor the Pensacola rental market and keep you posted as to any changes in rental values.

Statistically, housing costs consume over 1/3 of our income nationwide. We hate to hear when residents have unexpected situations that cause a hardship and that they are having a hard time paying rent. 

If you find yourself in this situation, there are resources in the Pensacola area to help with financial assistance for rent and utilitiy bills. We've compiled a list of resources available in Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties should you need them now or in the future.

United Way can provide resources. While they do not provide financial assistance, they do serve as a resource referral center for emergency food and shelter, services for families and senior citizens, health care, child care, services for people with disabilities, counseling and mental health services and more. Call them at 2-1-1 or find them online.

Safety Tips & Crime Prevention from the Escambia County Sheriff's Office

crime prevention tips pensacola florida

Recently, I had the pleasure of listening to Deputy Howard Enderson with the Escambia County Sheriff's Office Crime Prevention Unit give a talk to the Pensacola Association of Realtors on safety.  

A lot of the advice he gave us is applicable to safety for all at your home and business and I wanted to pass along my favorite tips from the crime prevention unit. 

  • Have a free security assessment of your property and home for specific recommendations on how to make your home safer.
  • Survey your property and look for places that people can hide. Eliminate those places!
  • Use the 2/6 rule- shrubs should be no higher than 2 feet and tree limbs should be no lower than 6 feet. 
  • Do not let shrubbery grow above or over your windows. 
  • Never hide a key at your property.
  • Always lock your vehicle and do not leave garage door openers in your vehicle overnight. 
  • Did you know that you can have a background check done for a small fee at the Sheriff's Office in one day? Before hiring someone to come pet sit, clean your house, or babysit your children, use this service and order a background check. 
  • Don't open the door for solicitors. Additionally, you can call the Sheriff's Office to report door to door solicitors.
  • Make sure everything is password protected.
  • Choose flight over fight but protect yourself if necessary. 
  • Always be alert and listen to your instincts! 

Did you know that the Escambia County Sheriff's Office offers free security assessments of your home, business, or church? They will come in the residence and offer tips to increase security at your property. To request a security assessment of your property, do so at this website: http://www.escambiaso.com/security-surveys/residential-security-survey/ 

The Escambia County Sheriff's Office also offers training including sepcial programs like the Neighborhood Watch and the Citizen Law Enforcement Academy.
