That upward trend in the cost of rent affects everyone in the rental housing market, not just low-income renters, said Chris Glynn, a professor at the University of New Hampshire's Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics. But lower-income renters feel the effects more severely than higher earners, he said.

"The consequences are greater, because folks who are sort of middle income will have alternatives, but folks who are lower income don't have those same alternatives," Glynn said.
