City Guide
Burbank
Know Your Neighbors

Like most cities in Los Angeles County, Burbank's borders and overall feel generally changes based how close you get to the borders of its neighbors. You and Burbank, however, have some pretty great neighbors.

North Hollywood is located to the southwest of Burbank and is an up-and-coming area with some decent nightlife. Yes, okay. Additionally, the NoHo Arts District keeps things creative and fresh.

To the east, Burbank is bordered by Glendale, which is a friendly LA suburb.

What this means for Burbank is that it has a good reputation with a slightly cheaper rental market than Glendale and LA proper. Burbank is a suburb of epic proportions, meaning that most public life exists in manufactured outdoor shopping malls and entertainment centers.

Wildlife

Burbank isn't all shopping malls and movie studios, however. The city is bordered to the south by Griffith Park, one of the largest municipal parks in the country with over 4,000 acres of land. Additionally, the large expanse of Angeles National Forest lies just east of the city.

Neighborhoods in Burbank

Burbank proper is considered a Valley city, which means that its located between the foothills of the Verdugo Mountains and the flat area of the San Fernando Valley. Because of its proximity to Angeles National Forest and Griffith Park, housing and development is concentrated in the western and northern reaches of town.

Downtown Burbank is home to the Media Center shopping, dining and entertainment area. Located within this pocket of development are several condos, duplexes and apartment buildings with a variety of amenities. Rentals in this area generally go for between $1200-1400 for a one bedroom.

Northern and Western Burbank have a similar feel to the downtown, though slightly less bustling. Many of Burbank's outdoor malls and shopping centers are located in these portions of the city. The primary development in this area is the Burbank Empire Center. Apartments in this area are quite desirable. One bedrooms in northern and western Burbank generally go for between $1300-1500, though more expensive rentals exist throughout these neighborhoods.

Rental Tips

Most Burbank rentals are done through the on-site property managers of large developments and complexes. If you are interested in living in a development--and hopefully you are because these buildings dominate the rental market--check out a few before you settle. On paper, many of these buildings have similar amenities, including laundry facilities, swimming pools and community centers, but various rental options distinguish them.

Most large apartment complexes offer flexible lease options. Six and twelve month leases are fairly commonplace, though many management companies offer leases for shorter than six months with a short-term fee tacked on to your rent. Deposits and application fees for these rentals generally add up to be about $50-100 more than one month's rent.

A few private rental houses do exist in certain parts of the city and these are mostly offered through the owners. Private homes will not have the amenities or flexible lease options of larger developments, but they offer a sense of privacy that can sometimes be lacking in planned communities.

Getting Around

There are a surprising number of public transportation options for the Burbank commuter. Express and local buses operated by LA's Metro will get you into Glendale, Hollywood and downtown Los Angeles.

Another option for the car-less commuter is the Metrolink train. The Ventura County Line has a stop at the Bob Hope Airport, and the Antelope Valley Line stops in downtown Burbank. Though this can be quite costly, the Metrolink is the fastest public transportation into Los Angeles's Union Station.

So, welcome to the Valley new Burbank resident! You'll be sure to find a comfortable apartment in Burbank's many new developments!

August 2017 Burbank Rent Report

Welcome to the August 2017 Burbank Rent Report. Burbank rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Burbank rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Currently, median rents in Burbank stand at $1,540 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,970 for a two-bedroom. This is the sixth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in January. Burbank's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 4.2%, as well as the national average of 2.9%.

Rents rising across the Los Angeles Metro

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Burbank, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Los Angeles metro, all of them have seen prices rise, and this trend can be seen throughout other areas in the state, as well. California as a whole has logged a 4.2% year-over-year growth. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro, as well as the rest of the state.

  • Sacramento, Chula Vista, and Fresno have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (8.9%, 6.6%, and 6.1%, respectively).

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

Methodology:

Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
