Los Angeles, CA

The 798,027-unit market-rate, investment grade Los Angeles apartment market continues to enjoy high rents and low vacancy. Rent growth was strong throughout 2017 although it slowed down slightly towards the end of the year. Reis reports a fourth quarter 2017 vacancy rate of 3.3%, unchanged from the prior quarter and for that matter every quarter back to the fourth quarter of 2016. Low vacancy is more or less the rule here, but to not record even a 10-basis-points variation for a full year is remarkable. Rent growth slowed down in the fourth quarter of 2017, after three strong quarters. The average asking and effective rents rose 0.4% each, to $1,883 and $1,811 per month. These were up 5.5% and 4.5%, respectively, over the year. VIEW APARTMENT LISTINGS >
