Rents are soaring across America — and the monthly rates at the most expensive properties make buying a home look downright cheap.
RentCafe, the apartment-finding website, compiled a list of the most expensive rentals in each state. Of course, the numbers are not perfect. Some of the most expensive properties are not listed publicly and are only available as "whisper listings" by high-end brokers. Yet these rentals and their rates are nonetheless among the most expensive in the country.
The most expensive rental in the country, according to RentCafe, is in Miami. The 13,000-square-foot eight-bedroom, 8½ bathroom modern glass mansion in Miami Beach is available for $300,000 a month. It's got a heated pool, 186 feet of waterfront and views of downtown.
The most expensive rental in California also has water views. The 6,067-square-foot home in Malibu has five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, an elevator for easy access to all three floors, a tea house with kitchen and gym, and sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean.
