Here are the median rents for one bedroom, two bedroom, three bedroom and four bedroom residences

If you are looking for a rental unit in Livermore, be prepared to pay between $1,200 and $2,000 a month, depending on what you need.

The median monthly rent right now in Livermore for all sizes of condominiums and homes listed through real estate agencies is about $1,460, according to the multiple listing sources that local agents use. It does not include owner listings on sites such as craigslist.

Here are the median rents in Livermore for different size residences.

1 Bedroom:  $1,250
2 Bedroom:  $1,485
3 Bedroom:  $2,000
4 Bedroom:  $2,000

An example on the higher-priced side is a duet at 1101 Tokay Common. The 1,107-square-foot residence is listed as renting for $2,200 a month.

Rachael Hand, a broker associate with Coldwell Banker, said rents are on the rise in part because people who have gone through short sales and foreclosures are renting because they cannot currently qualify for a home loan.

I know you got this information from someone else, but you should double source your information. I don't think there is a median price in Livermore, because there is basically no inventory. All you have to do is go to Zillow, or Wilson Properties. 1 bed with 560sqft normally is running about 1200 a month. What you list for a 2 bed is roughly correct for something in the 700-1000sqft arena 3 beds is where the disparity comes in. A 3 bed with around 1000 sqft will run about 2000 per month. However a 3 bed with roughly 1500 sqft will run you closer to 2400/2500 per month. And a 4 bed is more in the 2800 dollar range up to 3500 per month. Personally I think people who lost their houses to foreclosure or short sales should never be able to buy another house. They stole from us all! Some people had unfortunate instances, but the rest were irresponsible.

Paisely, I agree with your comments on the rental rates...try to find a decent rental in Livermore these days is a joke...go look at some of the properties..it's a real eye opener. Regarding your comment on folks who lost their homes to short sale or foreclosure, I disagree. Why should all people have to deal with the consequences of the irresponsible? It is the government and the economy that has brought this on. Imagine how you would feel if you lost your job, your income and can't find employment...which results in losing the home you love and all the memories. Only our government is the one stealing from the people...but it's ok...we are going to pardon the illegal and permit them to stay...taking away from you, me and the rest of the citizens. We should be taking care of our own first!
