FBS Rent Sense RE Investor Alert in 92120 north of I-8: SD County Apartment Association Reports Lowest Vacancy in 12 yrs

Making headlines this week, the San Diego County Apartment Association’s Spring 2014 Vacancy and Rental Rate survey has been featured in local and national news about the region’s rental housing market. Commentators noted the recent data indicating that the San Diego region is at near-record levels for low apartment vacancies and consumers agree with many complaining it has rarely seemed more difficult to find a rental unit. The survey joins a local debate about what policymakers can do to avoid a rental housing crisis in San Diego and encourage development of new rental housing stock.  

The Vacancy and Rental Rate survey is made available to SDCAA members in the RentalOwner magazine.
