because landlords find there's more money in catering to the rich so now its condo city

Best Answer

Because dummy's were buying hi dollar property and then the real estate bubble burst and now all of these "wise investors" are scrambling to make the payments on property that's worth less than half of what they bought it for.

Best Answer

A big part is government intervention in the housing market in the name of safety or stability. That makes it difficult for anyone to offer rents at reasonable rents. And large landlords are happy about it because zoning allows only so many places to be built which often keeps the supply artificially low; therefore, the rents artificially high.

Best Answer

It is so expensive because most landlords have mortgages, taxes, insurances , and in many cases utilities .. as well as maintaince on properties ....



These rising cost are passed in tho the tenants via RENTS ....



If youc an't afford a place on your own; try getting a roommate .... make sure that you have a WRITTEN agreement that included just about any problem that might come up , including who takes out trash , does cleaning , and overnight guest etc ....
