We’ve been promoting and investing in Long Beach for several years now and the proof is in the pudding, as they say. According to the 2021 Apartment Guide Rent Report, Long Beach saw the 3rd highest, year over year rent increase for one-bedroom apartments in the 100 largest metro areas in the Nation! In fact, half of the top 25 cities in terms of rent growth are in California. Although we have not seen much turnover in our SoCal units, the ones that have turned over have been rented within a month and typically for higher than pre-covid rents. With construction and development still at all-time highs, we are continuing to ride this investment wave through Long Beach.
Furthermore, Long Beach continues to be at the center of attention with the Supply Chain Crisis affecting most of the United States. The Federal Government has earmarked $7.5 billion investment for U.S. ports. With the Port of L.A. and the Port of Long Beach being ranked the #1 container port in the Western Hemisphere, the Long Beach Business Journal, states L.A. and Long Beach ports will be a top priority.
