San Diego County Apartment Rental Rates Increased 2.5 Percent in the Last Six Months


San Diego, California, September 2008 – San Diego County’s institutional grade rental complexes experienced a 2.5 percent rental rate increase, or $33 per month, in the last six months to an average of $1,344, according to MarketPointe Realty Advisors, Inc., RentalTrendsTM September, 2008 survey. This percentage change represents a markedly higher rate of increase than was noted over the previous six month period when the average rental rate climbed 1.5 percent. From an annual perspective, the current 4.08 percent increase comes close to mirroring the 4.10 percent increase seen between September 2006 and September 2007.

The overall vacancy rate in San Diego County dropped nearly 1.4 percent from 3.63 in our March audit to 2.25 percent in the recent September audit. The current vacancy rate represents an annual decline of .32 percentage points from September 2007, but is above the September 2006 vacancy rate of 1.84 percent. “Interestingly, the drop in the countywide vacancy rate comes despite a nearly 800-unit influx of new units,” said Russ Valone, President, MarketPointe Realty Advisors.
