The website said this equates to 35% of the average income of a single earner – the highest level in more than a decade.
Rents have been rising particularly sharply in cities such as in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Bristol and Sheffield over the past year, Zoopla added.
These cities are seeing demand exceed supply, being major employment centres with large student populations, it said.
The report said there has been a modest increase in rental supply in recent weeks, as the house sales market has weakened.
The average number of homes for rent per estate agency branch is 10, up from seven at the end of September, Zoopla said.
