How many rentals are in Los Angeles?

Asked by Nick Lee, San Francisco, CA Fri Jan 4, 2013

It looks like there's about 2,600 on this site but it seems like there should be a lot more but it's impossible to tell with Craigslist so I was wondering how many rentals are in LA and maybe how many total in LA county?

Dear Nick,

There are statistics on Multi Family Properties available through Commercial Sources such as CCIM. The reason you are not able to see all rentals on Westside Rentals, Craigslist or other consumer sites is because many Apartment Complexes (most) have "on site" management and their method of advertising is a "sign" in the front of the complex with available units.
There are literally thousands of multi-family units in Los Angeles County.

In practice, there's no real way to know exactly how many rentals are available in a given city. Rental listings often aren't posted through MLS systems, which is what Trulia pulls data from. Plus, there are lots of private rentals that are never listed anywhere.
