Image result for most expensive real estate market San FranciscoJanuary was a fairly flat month when it comes to rental growth, however a shift once again gave California six of the top 10 most expensive rental markets in the U.S.

While most of the top 10 cities remained flat, Santa Ana rejoined the ranks, giving California six of the top 10 cities, according to a monthly rental report from Zumper. It replaced Miami as the 10th most expensive city.

California cities in the top 10 now include San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles, Oakland, San Diego and Santa Ana. Three of those cities are in the top 5 most expensive markets.

Fewer cities saw double-digit price growth in January. And on a monthly basis, Louisville, Kentucky, saw the largest rental growth rate for one bedroom apartments at 4.8%, while Columbus, Ohio, took the largest monthly dip at 5.4%.

Overall, as the chart below shows, national one bedroom rent actually fell 0.4% to $1,212 in January, while two bedrooms increased slightly by 0.1% to $1,442. Annually, one bedroom rent is down 2.5% while two bedroom rent is up 3.7%.

At the end of 2018, the number of Americans expressing interest in moving to a new metro increased, according to the latest data collected by Redfin.

According to Redfin’s migration analysis, 25% of home searchers looked to relocate to another metro in the fourth quarter of 2018.

This percentage is a slight increase from 23% in 2017, and now sits at the highest recorded level in the report’s history.

The migration report utilized data from Redfin’s website, gathering information from more than 1 million users who searched for homes across 87 metros, from October through December.  

The report revealed that across the country, more and more Americans expressed interest in moving away from notoriously expensive markets like San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.
