What we did: Took a snapshot of cities in the Bay Area, averaged all annual listings to find what you might expect to pay for rent, and ranked them for you in a nifty chart.

And now this: Hey, don't just go skipping off into the sunset now to find your rental home. There's one more angle we want to show you - your actual chances of finding a rental in these economical spots. How many listings a city has (or doesn't have) greatly affects your chances of easily finding a rental home.
What do we mean? We mean that you need to also consider average listings per month. All this means is to take total annual listings in a given city and break that down into a monthly amount. The higher this number, the better your chances of finding a home to rent in that city. No worries, we've taken care of that for you as well.
