Mapping the Cheapest and Most Expensive Places to Rent in Los Angeles Right Now

New, 25 comments

Los Angeles has entered the age of rental bidding wars, but exactly how bad are rents looking out there? The folks at Zumper have put together this heatmap to illustrate the median rent for one-bedrooms in January: it's not New York dire, but it might warrant a sharp intake of breath or two. The most expensive one-bedroom rents are, duh, on the Westside, with Marina del Rey coming in at $2,600 and Santa Monica at a staggering $2,800. For a one-bedroom! Downtown is also surprisingly pricey with a median of $2,390. And bidding-war-plagued Atwater Village seems practically affordable at $1,650. Here's the full map (which doesn't, unfortunately, go east of Downtown):
