Methodology:

Apartment List Rent Report data is drawn monthly from the millions of listings on our site. 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom rents are calculated as the median for units available in the specified size and time period. Price changes are calculated using a “same unit” methodology similar to the Case-Shiller “repeat sales” home prices methodology, taking the average price change for units available across both time periods.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List’s Rent Reports cover rental pricing data in major cities, their suburbs, and their neighborhoods. We provide valuable leading indicators of rental price trends, highlight data on top cities, and identify the key facts renters should know. As always, our goal is to provide price transparency to America’s 105 million renters to help them make the best possible decisions in choosing a place to call home.

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released results for Los Angeles from the second annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. The survey, which drew on responses from over 30,000 renters, provides insight into what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the 105 million American renters nationwide.

“Los Angeles renters are generally dissatisfied with the city overall, with most renters giving below average or significantly below average scores across the board,” says Andrew Woo, Director of Data Science at Apartment List. “With rents rising significantly in coastal cities especially, it comes as no surprise that cost of living is a source of dissatisfaction here.”

Key findings in Los Angeles include the following:

  • Los Angeles renters give their city a C overall for satisfaction.
  • The highest-rated category for the City of Angels was weather (A-).
  • Renters here are somewhat satisfied with local jobs and career opportunities (C+), access to public transit (C+), and safety (C-).
  • The largest causes for dissatisfaction are the quality of local schools (D) and affordability/cost of living (D).
  • Compared to renters who are parents, millennials are more satisfied with Los Angeles, giving the city a C. Renters who are parents gave the city an F.
  • Los Angeles did better than some California cities such as Sacramento (C-) and San Jose (C-), but paled in comparison to others like San Diego (A-) and San Francisco (A-).
  • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction included Arlington, VA; Lincoln, NE; Pasadena, CA; Boston, MA; and Madison, WI. The lowest rated cities included Newark, NJ; Bronx, NY; Bridgeport, CT; Baltimore, MD; and Salinas, CA.

Renters say:

  • “I love that there's so much to do here. The beach is very close; mountains are close as well. The nightlife is great.” —Anon.
  • “Infrastructure wasn't made to accommodate the millions of people living here now, so roads are clogged, affordable apartments are hard to find, and parking is an unholy nightmare. The kind of people that live here, though, are so much friendlier than where I grew up. The weather is amazing, and there's always so much to do! I love LA, even if it's got some major issues.” —Jennifer H.
  • “The traffic really sucks, but it's only this way because everyone wants to live here, so I've come to terms with it.” —Bethany
  • “I love the city because the weather is perfect and there is so much to do. I however do not like my current neighborhood because of crime and feeling unsafe.” —Shannon S.
