BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Baton Rouge residents living in apartments could see their rent going down.

According to an analysis by RENTcafé, Baton Rouge has the fourth slowest rent growth of small market cities. In fact, it decreased point-six percent.

Experts attribute this drop to the thousands of new apartment units opening by the end of 2018.

They said that a larger supply of living space is forcing landlords to lower prices to attract new tenants.
