TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — The rent cost is high, and has been for a while, especially in Florida. As housing costs remain a significant driver of overall inflation, a new study by Florida Atlantic University dives into why rent costs are so high in the Sunshine State, especially compared to the rest of the United States. FAU reported that Florida is home to nine of the 21 most overpriced rental markets in the nation, with Tampa, North Port, and Lakeland among cities where renters pay the highest premiums in the U.
