    Construction of new apartments and houses over the last four years has created a large rental supply in Santa Cruz. Lower demand for these rentals has resulted in dropping rents. Vacancy rates are high at all but the most popular apartment buildings. Construction continues, with more two- and three-bedroom apartments planned to enter the rental market in the next 6-18 months. However, sources believe rents have likely reached their lowest point.

    Many new construction projects of residential rentals have been completed over the past several years. Demand for these rentals has softened, leading to lower rents and an oversupply of units. Most of this rental decrease has affected high-end luxury units. Sources say, the higher the price, the larger the decrease. Rents are expected to have reached their lowest levels and the slow economy is hoped to rebound since a new president was elected in May 2019.
