Can anyone produce a chart of the average residential rent per sq ft in the US over the last 30-100 years? Thx

I think that residential rents have been pretty consistent (2-4% up per year) on the whole. Some cities at some time periods might have seen very different results, but I think as a whole res. rents in the US have always gone up modestly. Is that true?

I do not have a chart but CAP RATE is nothing new. So 50 years ago if an investor wanted 10%, his rents would be proportionate to his purchase price.
