ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — The heat might not be the only thing making you sweat-- it could also be the price of a one-bedroom apartment. 

A new study from Magnify Money found that the cost of renting a one-bedroom apartment in St. Petersburg went up 15.5-percent year-over-year. That increase landed St. Pete at number four out of the 100 largest US metros for the highest increase in the rental price of a one-bedroom.

Tampa's price for 1-bedroom apartments increased by 4.4 percent year-over-year which landed it at 42 on the list. Orlando's price for 1-bedroom apartments went down by 4.6 percent, which ranked it 85 out of the 100 US metros studied.  

Three midwest metros beat St. Pete and had the biggest year-over-year percent increase in price jump. It was Cleveland, Indianapolis, and Columbus, according to MagnifyMoney research.

The research listed the average price of a one-bedroom apartment in St. Pete at $1,270. It listed Tampa's average one-bedroom price at $1,180 and Orlando's at $1,240.
