I'm interested in US price/rent ratios, such the list here: https://smartasset.com/mortgage/price-to-rent-ratio-in-us-cities

However, it seems like such statistics are always compiled by major city. I am interested what it looks like outside cities. For instance, county-level data would be enough resolution for me.

Do such statistics exist? Where can I find them? Is there a way to gather them easily myself?

Looks like Zillow has the data you are looking for - including county, city and ZIP Code. You will have to export to Excel though.

I hope this helps!

Zillow Research provides this information

If you export the county level data you will obtain a .csv in this format:

There is a nice Seeking Alpha article on this topic; it shows some analysis at the county level.
