What percentage of home in Bay area are rental unit?

Is there a good data point that suggest single family homes in given zipcode are rental property ? Also how many homes are owned by foreign investors .

Check US Census data for the first question. There’s no reliable data for the second.

It’s hard to find the percentage of SFR rental for a particular zip code or city.

Why is this question so important? The percentage has increased since 2008 due to high number of foreclosures, but I guess it may go down now due to high price which makes landlording less attractive

I’m surprised city-data doesn’t seem to have it:


Nextdoor neighborhood profiles has homeowner percentage. See Old PA Nextdoor.
