Santa Cruz becomes most expensive California county for rent

San Francisco is no longer the most expensive California county for renters, according to a recent national report.

The Out of Reach report shows that a full-time worker would have to earn more than $63 per hour to afford a two-bedroom apartment in Santa Cruz.

Santa Cruz County tops the national list, and San Francisco is still second-highest in the country.

Santa Clara, Monterey, and Santa Barbara round out the most expensive counties in California.

The report ranks California as No. 1 for the most expensive state based on a two-bedroom housing wage.
