You’ve probably noticed that rents have skyrocketed in many places as the country grapples with a historic housing shortage. Now, with rising mortgage rates, the pressure on the rental market is even greater. Many people face the kind of intense competition that is typically only seen with home buying.

If you’ve been through a rental bidding war – whether you won, lost, or just ran away – NPR wants to hear from you! Has it changed how you search or where you search? And if you’re a realtor or landlord, we’d also like to know how you’re doing.

Sharing your story will help reporters understand what Americans face in their quest for affordable housing. We can contact you to see if you would like to do an interview for a story.
