Property values in Los Angeles County increased by 6.13 percent in 2015 ó the largest jump since 2010, the assessor reported on Thursday, June 16, 2015. The median price of a single-family home in L.A. County increased 7.9 percent, to $480,000 last year. The average price was $780,000.

Apartment rents increased 6.4 percent in 2014. In the city of Los Angeles, the average rent for a two-bedroom apartment last year was $2,591 per month.
