”Survey says” looks at various rankings and scorecards judging geographic locations while noting these grades are best seen as a mix of artful interpretation and data.

Buzz: Forget what the landlord is charging, the first headache is finding a vacancy. And five California markets were ranked among the 20 toughest places to find an apartment in the nation.

Source: My trusty spreadsheet’s review of a RentCafe report on the nation’s most competitive apartment markets, based on data from large rental complexes for 2022’s first half. The rental search challenges tracked for big apartment markets were what’s available (vacancy rate); how long units stayed empty; renter interest (prospects per unit); renters staying put (renewal rate); and new construction as a share of available supply.

Here are the Golden State markets that made this apartment seeker’s nightmare list …

No. 11 Orange County: The 2.5% vacancy rate is trouble enough for an apartment seekers, but a typical empty unit stays unrented only 31 days and draws 20 prospects. That’s why 60% of renters choose to renew leases. And new construction adds just 0.2% to what’s on the market.
