San Francisco Rent Declines…But Little Relief

In a 2017 Mid Year Rent Trends Report from Abodo, Adobo averaged the median rents for one bedroom apartments over the span of the first six months of 2017.

Rents in San Francisco and San Jose showed a slight decline, down 1.2% and 1.8%, respectively. In contrast, rents in Oakland increased by 0.5%.
