As renters continue an exodus from San Francisco amidst the Coronavirus pandemic one-bedroom rents have fallen by more than double digits in San Francisco from June 2019 to June 2020. They are down 11.8% and the average one-bedroom is now $3,280.00 a month - still the most expensive in the country.

Rates are also way down in Mountain View (the home of Google), Menlo Park (the home of facebook) & Cupertino (the home of Apple) as tech workers continue to be able to work from home.

Meanwhile, one-bedrooms in Sacramento went up 8% from this time last year and now average $1,360.00 a month.
