HomeUnion® Identifies the Most Expensive Zip Codes for Home Rentals in Los Angeles

Northern Santa Monica rents average $8,500 a month


IRVINE, Calif., April 21, 2016 – HomeUnion®, an online real estate investing platform enabling value investing in residential properties, has released new data on the most expensive investment home rental markets in Los Angeles County. According to HomeUnion®’s research, homes in coastal communities and in northern L.A. have the highest monthly rents.

“California led the nation in employment growth last year, and Los Angeles created the most new jobs in the state, encouraging residents to form new households,” says Steve Hovland, director of research for HomeUnion®. “This stellar job growth helped tighten vacancy and encouraged home purchases in 2015, severely limiting both for-sale and rental inventory. As the number of available homes remains low, L.A. property managers are pushing up monthly rental rates.”

With average rents of $8,500 per month, northern Santa Monica surpassed all other coastal communities, as well as the traditionally pricey submarkets of Bel Air and Beverly Hills.

Here’s a list of the top 15 most expensive rental markets in Los Angeles County:

90402 Northern Santa Monica $8,500
90077 Bel Air, Beverly Glen $8,200
90272 Pacific Palisades $7,700
90263 Malibu, Malibu Bluffs $7,100
90266 Manhattan Beach $7,000
90210 Beverly Hills $6,660
