Your thoughts .. Is this the effect of $15.00 minimum wage ?


Sky-high apartment rents in Southern California are expected to climb further in coming years, as construction fails to keep up with population and job growth, according to a forecast released Tuesday.
The average rent in Los Angeles County is expected to hit $1,416 a month in 2018, an 8.3% jump from last year, while in Orange County, average rents are likely to rise 9.4% to an average of $1,736, the USC Casden Multifamily Forecast said.

No it has absolutely nothing to do with $15 minimum wage.

It's simple supply and demand.

$15/hr minimum wage won't be in effect until 2022. There is no correlation with rent. Too many people want to live here and there is a finite housing supply

Rent a room in a house and scrimp until you can buy something. It's really the smartest move now.
