The topic of how much one pays for rent is always a popular one in this town, right behind celebrity sightings at the Grove and the debate about exactly where the “Eastside” in Los Angeles begins [opening can of worms]. People are always curious what others are paying, and in relation, whether what they pay themselves is a good deal. And now thanks to a tip from
Curbed LA we can refer to
Rentometer to see whether your friend’s rental is really the sweet deal he’s often proudly proclaimed.

Enter determinants including location, the amount of bedrooms and number of units in the building and the site will report back whether the rent falls above, within, or below the average of the neighborhood, including a Google map that reveals the rent of nearby units. The more people who participate, the more accurate the meter becomes.
