The 282 Grand home in Monrovia is still available and listed through me. We just lowered the price to $2175. Pets are fine!

Some of those rentals are really nice :-) Thank you for sharing, but I'd love to see the average rental that a single-income household can afford. It's a shame that tenants stare in the face of so many over-priced rentals...and most are NOT pet friendly, regardless how well-behaved, quiet, and clean the pets are. Geez, my dog has better references than most human tenants! As a renter that is actively looking for a new place in Monrovia, I am disappointed in what I've been encountering. In my opinion, some property owners are asking way too much for way too little. I don't care where it's located or how much you've invested in it, if it's more than any other local rental, you need to reconsider the price. Do some research on average income and be reasonable with what you're asking, we're not all lazy slugs that will thrash the place and not all pets create problems. And, some of us even choose to rent vs. purchase for reasons other than financial and if we found the right place would be a long-term tenant. I wish there was such a thing as renter bonus points or gold stars, just for those of us who respect the landlord and the property as if it were our own house, then when we apply for the next place, we redeem our points or stars for lower rent. I wish... And, if you happen to be a property owner that takes care of things, thank you :-) I do hope your nice, pet-friendly rental is in Monrovia and it's not over priced. And I hope I find that needle in the haystack.

Renters price their rentals based on what the market will bear. If people are willing to pay those high prices... well then, the single income renter is outta luck. If no one can pay it, the prices will drop. Sounds like you've got to either increase your income or lower your expectations. It is a bummer. It is a tough market here for the middle class. You have very wealthy folks buying places, and low income folks living in places they can only afford because of public subsidies... which squeezes out the middle class.

True the rental market around here is tough, but it is still cheaper than home ownership. Since the cost of ownership is high, I think the rental market is going to get tougher and tougher until we see some real easing in the cost of home ownership. If nobody buys, they have to live somewhere.
