With the national median rent for a one-bedroom unit at $1,320 per month, renters can save $515 a month by sharing their residence with at least one roommate, according to data in the inaugural HotPads Rooms for Rent Index report

The national median rents for one- and two-bedroom units are down this month, according to new data from ABODO.
 
The national median one-bedroom rent price came into May at $1,015, down from $1,026 in April. May is the fourth consecutive month of declining prices for this housing property. The national median price for a two-bedroom unit came in at $1,230, down from $1,247 in April.
 
For the one-bedroom rental market, the greatest median rent hike was in Dayton, Ohio, rising 7.6 percent from $690 in April to $750 in May. The greatest median rent decline was in Syracuse, N.Y., from $898 in April to $797 in May, an 11.2 percent decline.
