Gain Insight

into Southern California Rental Housing with Industry Surveys

Southern California Rental Housing Association conducts annual surveys to gain a better understanding of the rental housing industry in Southern California. These surveys are published in Rental  Advisor Magazine and are available at no additional cost to our members or $100 per survey for nonmembers.

The Vacancy and Rental Rate Survey

TheSouthern California Rental Housing Association conducts the Vacancy and Rental Rate Survey twice a year and publishes the results in June (Spring Survey) and December (Fall Survey) to provide a “snapshot” of industry conditions. As one of the oldest and most comprehensive surveys of its kind, we solicit responses from a range of property sizes, ages, and amenity levels to most closely reflect the variety of rental housing available to area residents.

The Apartment Availability Index Surveys uses a sample of full-time rental property owners and managers to determine the number of vacant units and the number of units on notice to vacate representing the total number of units available. The results of this survey act as an early indicator of industry activity and provides another gauge of the overall availability of rental housing in Southern California.

Multifamily Fee Survey

The Public Affairs department conducts the multifamily fee survey to provide our members with information on the costs associated with operating a multifamily property in Southern California.

The Multifamily Fee Survey helps rental property owners and managers plan for future expenses related to water, sewer, trash, and municipal fees. This survey appears in the July issue of Rental Advisor Magazine.
