Apartment List just released July’s rent report for Los Angeles–and, unfortunately, it looks like we’ve got some bad news for apartment hunters.
Even though nationwide rents fell slightly, Los Angeles rents decided to buck that particular trend and grow 3.3 percent year-over-year since June 2015, which experienced rent growth of 2.2 percent over the same period of time.
Fortunately for renters, there was no growth over the past month. However, Los Angeles is still the 7th most expensive city to rent in, with a median two-bedroom price of $2,630–neck and neck with Pasadena, which has a $2,600 two-bedroom median.
Fortunately, LA has a long way to go to catch up to the most expensive cities in the country: San Francisco (#1), which boasts a median two-bedroom rent of $4,650, and New York (#2), which comes in slightly below SF at $4,600.
