The city of San Francisco, the nation’s second-most expensive city, has some of the cheapest rents in the country, according to the National Geographic survey.
The city’s median rent is $2,800 per month, or more than half the national average of $3,500.
According to data from Rentrak, the median rent for a one-bedroom apartment in San Francisco is $3.50 per square foot.
But the city’s apartment rental prices are only a tiny fraction of the national median rent of $6,200.
Rentrak’s median price for one-bedrooms in the Bay Area is $1,600, about $1 a square foot more than the median San Francisco rent.
But San Francisco’s rents are well below the national rate of $2.60 per square feet, according the study.
Renters are getting more than they pay in San Fran, which was one of the most expensive cities to rent in America, according a 2015 report from Zillow, a real estate research company.
San Francisco also has some the highest median incomes in the U.S. Median incomes for rent-controlled renters in San Diego and Los Angeles are $61,300 and $56,300, respectively.
San Franciscans also are the only city in the United States where renters pay a higher percentage of their income on housing costs than renters in other major cities, according Rentrak.
San Jose, San Francisco and Palo Alto are the other three cities in California with the highest rents in national data.
The median rent in the San Francisco metro area is $634 per month.
That’s $1.05 per square inch less than the national figure of $818 per square unit.
Rentals in the region are down about 12 percent from a year ago, according Zillows data.
San Diego is the only other city in California that has a median rent that is lower than San Francisco.
The state median rent was $2 (about $1 more than San Fran) in April, according data from the California Office of Administrative Services.
Median rents for the San Diego metro area are also down 12 percent since January.
San Carlos, the largest city in Los Angeles County, had the lowest median rent, $2 per square-foot, last month, according figures from the Los Angeles Housing Authority.
Rent in Los Santos, the city of Riverside, is the second-lowest in the state at $1 per square.
Rent is rising rapidly in the cities in Los Alamos and Santa Fe, two other big cities in New Mexico.
In Los Alamo, the cost of a one room in the city has risen about 14 percent since last year, according Tojo.
That compares with a 7 percent increase in the cost in Santa Fe.
The number of rental units in Santa Cruz County is about half the number in Santa Barbara County.
Renting is cheaper in other cities, too.
Rent costs in Atlanta, which has the most apartments per capita, have decreased more than in other U. S. cities, said tojo.
But renters in Los Altos, the most populous city in San Bernardino County, are getting stuck paying more than $1 for their housing.
Rent prices in that city are about double the national figures.
The average monthly rent in Los Banos is $823.
San Fernando Valley, the smallest city in Fresno County, is also seeing a lot of rent increases.
But in the last two years, the average rent has declined by about 12% and rents in that region are $1 less than in San Fernando.
