The San Diego market is among the top cities for renter satisfaction in Southern California. According to a new survey from Apartment List, San Diego scores an A- for renter satisfaction, with top scores in almost every category. The high scores for the market will likely translate to strong multifamily activity and less renter attrition in the long-term. San Diego’s score is a standout in Southern California, where Los Angeles received the a C+ in the same survey and Orange County markets like Santa Ana and Anaheim received a D and C in the survey.

“It is definitely a strong sign for the market that people want to live there. If the city is getting high scores like these, it will attract new renters to the area, and it also indicate that people are likely to stay even if there are increases in rents,” Sydney Bennet, senior research associate at Apartment List, tells GlobeSt.com. “Affordability is really the main area where renters are unhappy, but if you like everything else about the area, you are more likely to put up with higher rents in exchange for the weather, social scene and everything else in the area.”
