Los Angeles Information

  • The average 2-bedroom apartment rents for $2,000 per month. 
  • Hot summers result in high electricity costs inland. 

Multifamily owners concerned about their net operating income have some choices to make about how utilities are allocated to their multifamily properties and should be aware of local utility regulations.
