In general Midtown/Cooper Young stays pretty level, and rents vary quite a bit based on location and property condition. The key is getting familiar with your desired area, and having a fairly good idea what different types of properties rent for. Midtown is not a cookie cutter neighborhood, homes vary in type, value and conditon. I live in Midtown and specialize in the Midtown neighborhoods. I highly recommend an overview before signing a lease or contract.
