“It shows there’s plenty of demand,” says Joshua Howard, executive director of the California Apartment Association’s Tri-County Division. “With the lack of homes available for sale, more people are renting. And with home prices going up, some consumers are figuring out it’s less expensive to make a rent payment.”

Despite high demand, occupancy dropped slightly in the Silicon Valley, something Howard attributes to the recent completion of a number of apartment projects.

And more apartment development is on the way, including upwards of 15,000 units in the region. Howard tells KTVU.com.

“There is relief in sight,” he says.
