As it relates to renting an apartment or even buying a home?

It really depends where in Malibu you would like to move to. Malibu sits on the Pacific Coast Highway, PCH. The Ocean side includes homes on the many beaches, Ocean view homes, and even homes with more of a canyon or mountain view. Some places may not have much of a view at all. On the Mountain side of Malibu you may have ocean views, mountain views and views up in many of the canyons.

I have seen studios renting for $750 a month that are more than likely major dives, were probably built a long time ago and have little in the way of modern amenities. You could rent a guest home as well. Prices may be in the $1,500 and up range. If you are looking for a condo with a view you may end up paying $3,500 and up. Homes can be big in Malibu and prices increase with a home. The former Sammy Hagar place rents for $85,000 a month during the prime beach going months and is a bargain at $40,000 when the weather is bad. Malibu can be fogged in many months of the year, including June. You can find some 1 bed 1 bath places in the $2,500 a month range. Remember though that Malibu is not a very large city. This is a small place.

CA is generally >40% cheaper vs Manhattan

Malibu/Palisades is easily commutable (<<45mins dr-to-dr in own climate-controlled, Bluetth-enabled Mercedes) to high-income jobs in SM/CentCity/BH/DLA (and keep in mind financiers in LA arrive at office <5AM)

Many wealthy on Westside own wkend houses in Malibu (not many wish to reside in Malibu in off-season)...a far easier wkend commute than the Manhattan-Hamptons drive/copters nonsense to move from one hot/humid place to one slightly less so

The OP didnt specify that he was talking about Manhattan. In any event, I think Manhattan vs Malibu is a good comparison pricewise. Probably on par.

Otherwise, the whole of New York City is signifcantly cheaper than Malibu, which is a super wealthy beach enclave whereas NYC has 8 Million people, the vast majority are not rich or upper class.

Remember that Malibu is home to just over 13,000 people. If you are comparing Manhatten alone they have 1,300,000 + people.

Yes, that's something that the OP should have considered. Perhaps he/she should have asked about a specific NYC neighborhood compared to Malibu.

Malibu can be very pricey especially if you are planning on renting a house and or condo. Anything with an ocean view is just ridiculously priced. If you are near Broad Beach EXPENSIVE.

Malibu Rentals For Rent

I've seen the inside of Sammy Hagar's house and it's so underwhelming. One thing I have noticed about nearly every interior of these giant $30 million Malibu mansions is that having money doesn't mean you have taste. As an interior designer who specializes in coastal home decor, I am appalled at how awful some of these homes look on the inside.
