Most and Least Expensive California Towns for Corporate Housing

Posted by Jon F. on Jun 8, 2017 7:43:00 AM

Our landlords (and tenants for that matter) are always interested in furnished apartment pricing trends, especially when it comes to corporate housing. So we've crunched some fresh data to show some of the most and least expensive California towns for corporate housing on the Homesuite platform. As you browse the data below, you'll notice that we're using Price Per Bedroom.

Demand for urban rentals has risen. By December 2015, over 180,000 apartment units were completed in the US.  During that same year, vacancy rates climbed to 4.4% from 2014’s 4.3%.
