Santa Monica is known for its rent control ordinances, but people who lived there many years ago will tell you that today's rent went up, generally speaking.
Did you find your dream property or are you still looking?
As an FYI, the general assessment has yet to equal City of L.A.'s 4% annual rent increase allowance AND, it has never equalled the rate cost of living increase.
Beyond that, Santa Monica is a great place to live.
