Residential real-estate rent prices are trending upward in Connecticut.

According to the website Apartment Lists, which publishes monthly reports on residential rental trends nationwide, rents have risen in seven of the largest 10 cities in Connecticut for which the website compiles data. The state as a whole posted aggregate rent growth of 1.1 percent over the past 12 months.

Of the ten metro areas tracked, Stamford has the most expensive residential rent prices — a median $1,941 monthly rent for a two-bedroom apartment. New Haven’s media monthly two-bedroom rent of $1,322 was the highest outside of Fairfield County.

Other New Haven County cities listed included Waterbury ($1,140 median monthly two-bedroom rent) and Meriden ($1,080).

New Haven's median two-bedroom rent of $1,322 is above the national average of $1,192. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.4 percent  over the past year compared to the 0.4-percent decline in metro New Haven.

Among major metro areas tracked by Apartment List, San Francisco posted the highest median monthly two-bedroom rent: $3,090. Detroit’s median monthly rent of $900 was at the opposite end of the national spectrum, according to the website.
