Los Angeles apartment rent growth is accelerating. According to a new report from Apartment List, rent growth has accelerated each month of the year—following rental rate decline in January. With seven consecutive months of rent growth, average apartment rents have increased 1.3% for the year. In July, rents were up .2%. As of July, the median price for a two bedroom in Los Angeles was $1,750.
“The falling rents L.A. experiences from last October through this January are consistent with seasonality in the rental market, as fewer renters mover in the winter months,” Chris Salviati, a housing economist at Apartment List, tells “The subsequent pickup of recent months is the result of heightened demand from the larger number of renters who move during the summer.”
While rents have continued to increase this year, Salviati doesn’t expect the growth rate to reach the record highs of 2016 and 2017, when the growth surpassed 3%, or 2014 and 2015, when the growth rate was steady throughout the year, reaching nearly 3%. “Year-over-year rent growth in Los Angeles currently stands at 1.3%, and this figure has been falling throughout this year,” he says. “Throughout most of 2017, year-over-year growth in LA was in the 4% to 5% range; it is unlikely that rent growth will increase back to that level in the near term.”
