Led by Miramar, Broward County has the five most expensive rental apartment markets in Florida, according to a survey by RENTCafé, a national apartment-search website.

The average monthly rent for a Miramar apartment was $1,800 in July, a 3.2 percent increase from July 2016, RENTCafé reported.

RENTCafé surveyed apartment buildings with at least 50 units. The survey excluded houses and condominiums on the rental market.

Adrian Rosenberg, a spokesman for the website, told the Sun-Sentinel that Miramar rents reflect a large stock of high-end apartment buildings in the southwest Broward County suburb, where developers have opened 1,500 new apartments since 2013.

RENTCafé found that the average apartment rent in Fort Lauderdale ranked second among Florida cities at $1,751 a month, followed by third-ranked Davie at $1,739 a month.

Coral Springs and Pembroke Pines tied for fourth place among Florida cities, each with an average monthly apartment rent of $1,653.

Miami ranked sixth statewide with an average monthly apartment rent of $1,587. Rosenberg said lower-priced areas of the city held down Miami’s statewide ranking.

Seventh-ranked West Palm Beach had an average apartment rent of $1,344 a month, and it was the only city in Palm Beach County among the 15 priciest markets in the state.

Orlando ranked tenth ($1,269) in the RENTCafé survey. St. Petersburg ranked 12th ($1,212), Tampa 13th ($1,199), Tallahassee 14th ($1,141) and Gainesville 15th ($1,119). [Sun-Sentinel]Mike Seemuth
