Apartment rents are up almost 19% in Fresno since 2016. What does it cost to rent here?

The average cost to rent an apartment in Fresno rose slightly between August and September, as the city remained one of the least-expensive California cities in which to rent.

At $1,089 per month, the average apartment rent reported this week by RentCafe.com for the Fresno market was the sixth-lowest price among 79 cities in the state for which apartments represent a significant share of the housing. In fact, all nine of the California cities with the lowest average rental prices are in the central and southern San Joaquin Valley.
