Hi, everyone.

Generally speaking, comparable apartments within a building cost more to rent the higher up they are. So, if living on a high floor is something you can do without, you'll probably save money by opting to live closer to the ground.

Could you please explain the grammartical structure of the phrase " cost more to rent the higher up they are"?

Thanks,

    It means that an apartment on the tenth floor will be more expensive than the same apartment on the ninth; an apartment on the ninth floor will be more expensive than the same apartment on the eighth; an apartment on the eighth floor will be more expensive than the same apartment on the seventh...etc.
