Meanwhile, Downtown Santa Monica is still the most expensive place to rent in the LA area, and the median is still heading up—in May, one-bedrooms were 5.3 percent above the last quarter at $3,160. (Two-bedrooms were down 3.9 percent, though, to $4,170.) Venice, Marina del Rey, and Downtown LA are also still leading the rent pack.
The cheapest one-bedrooms in May were in South LA, including Florence-Graham and Vermont Square. Northeast LA was also looking pretty reasonable, with one-bedrooms going for $1,225 in Glassell Park and $1,250 in Cypress Park. Unfortunately, Zumper’s map doesn’t stretch east of Downtown.
