Top 10 most expensive rental homes in America

The ten biggest price tags

2012 is easily the year of the landlord as rental prices are on the rise and vacancy rates and days on market are on the decline. While many people are deal hunting, there are yet others who are seeking top of the line rentals – sometimes for short term use, and other times for their primary residence. Below, we have taken a look at the most expensive real estate listing for rent in each of America’s ten largest cities. The only city missing is New York City as the wild west of real estate in the area often features off-market listings as their most expensive, making verification far more difficult.

That said, to get an idea for the most expensive rentals in America, take a peek at these ten luxury listings, and click any image to visit the actual listing online (and for our extra snarky readers, you will get a kick out of the poor photo quality in #2 below – that is an unedited screenshot of the actual listing):

10. Jacksonville, FL – $5,500

9. San Antonio, TX – $6,000

8. San Jose, CA – $6,400

7. Houston, TX – $7,500

6. Philadelphia, PA – $10,000

5. Phoenix, AZ – $13,000

4. Dallas, TX – $16,000

3. Chicago, IL – $26,000

2. San Diego, CA – $70,800

1. Los Angeles, CA – $195,000

All data above has been collected via search and deemed to be as accurate as possible as of time of publication.
