City Guide
Concord
Isn’t Concord, like, an extension of San Francisco?

First things first: If you want to get the full San Francisco experience, there’s only one way to do it: Move to San Francisco. Concord is its own city, with its own allure and its own drawbacks. Like other East Bay cities, Concord boomed over the years as northern Californians sought out less crowded stomping grounds in the Bay area.

So what is Concord’s appeal, anyway?

Well, for one thing, the city lies in the backyard of Mt. Diablo, which is not only one of the American West’s most picturesque mountains but also lays claim to the coolest name of any land mass anywhere (with Alaska’s Mount Powder Top coming in a close second, of course). Because of its scenic views and paradise-perfect weather (even in the “coldest” days of winter, you’ll barely need a windbreaker), Concord has emerged as one of the Bay’s most outdoorsy areas. Tons of quality golf courses can be found throughout the city, while other attractions include a mega-sized water park, amusement park, and farmer’s market.

The best part about Concord, though, is its affordability. The average rental unit costs less than $1200, and unlike other parts of the Bay area, you’ll actually have some room to kick your feet up: Most rental units cover 800-900 square feet, so can enjoy a spacious West Coast domicile at a modest, Midwest-like price tag.

How do I get around town?

Your options for bumming around town are limitless (if, that is, your idea of “limitless” is two). The good old gas guzzler is king of the road in Contra Costa County, and because the bulk of the area’s shops, banks, parks, and residential locations are so spread out, your best bet for navigating the streets of Concord is via your own wheels. If you live and work downtown, though, you can rely on the County Connection buses ($2 for a one-way, $60 for a monthly pass) or the courtesy of your own two feet to get around.

Ironically, using public transit to get out of Concord is a lot more convenient than using it to traverse within the city itself. Concord residents who work in San Francisco can simply hop aboard the BART and touch down on the Embarcadero in about 45 minutes. The subway also makes numerous stops in Oakland, as well as America’s official Bastion of the Bizarre, Berkeley (so you don’t have to worry about getting stuck in traffic while commuting peacefully to the revolution of your choice).

How do I get started on my apartment hunt?

Well, first you should accept some basic truths about becoming a property renter in Concord, such as:

  • You have the power. Empowering though, huh? To say there is no shortage of rental properties in Concord is a bit of an understatement. City planners have kept their pace (and then some) with incoming residents when it comes to available housing, so whether you want to live in the Northern, Southern, or Valley District, you’ll have plenty of digs to pick from. Waiting lists are pretty much unheard of, and landlords are constantly conjuring up new incentives to lure leasers in. So take your time and explore all your options before signing the dotted line.

  • Go West, young renter, go West. The western and southwestern districts primarily consist of apartments and condos, and you’re likely to find the most affordable renting options there (often for less than a grand).

  • Or don’t go West. Go East. Go downtown. Or someplace else. Immediately north and east of downtown are several older neighborhoods where leasers can often find free-standing houses for rent (expect to spend anywhere between $1200 and 2 grand, depending on the property and amenities). The Walnut Creek downtown area, meanwhile, is home to a handful of brand-spanking-new high rises and lofts that are always available, so if you don’t mind bucking up a few more greenbacks (usually $1500 or more for a 1BR unit), you can live in the lap of luxury (with killer amenities and views).

  • Be prepared. Landlords in Concord have different expectations of potential renters in terms of income, renting history, and the duration of the lease, but you should be prepared, no matter where you rent, to show a bank account statement, paycheck stubs, and two forms of I.D. Also, Concord property managers often run background checks (usually at the leaser’s expense) before offering a contract.

And now you’re all set to begin the search for a super-sweet Concord crash pad. So welcome to the East Bay, and happy hunting!

July 2017 Concord Rent Report

Welcome to the July 2017 Concord Rent Report. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Concord rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Concord rents increase sharply over the past month

Concord rents have increased 0.7% over the past month, and are up sharply by 8.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Concord stand at $2,390 for a one-bedroom apartment and $3,000 for a two-bedroom. Concord'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 San Francisco Metro

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Concord, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the San Francisco metro, 9 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.

  • Concord has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 8.3%. The median two-bedroom there costs $3,000, while one-bedrooms go for $2,390.
  • Over the past year, San Francisco proper has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with decline of 0.6%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $3,040, while one-bedrooms go for $2,420.
  • San Mateo has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the San Francisco metro, with a two-bedroom median of $4,330; rents were up 0.3% over the past month and 3.8% over the past year.
  • Oakland has the least expensive rents in the San Francisco metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,150; rents grew 1.2% over the past month and 2.8% over the past year.
  • Looking throughout the rest of the state, San Jose is the most expensive of all California's major cities outside the San Francisco metro, with a median two-bedroom rent of $2,570; of the 10 largest California cities that we have data for, all have seen rents rise year-over-year, with Sacramento experiencing the fastest growth (+8.2%).
  • Sacramento, Santa Ana, and Fresno have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (8.2%, 6.4%, and 5.5%, respectively).

Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Concord

As rents have increased in Concord, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Compared to most large cities across the country, Concord is less affordable for renters.

  • Concord's median two-bedroom rent of $3,000 is above the national average of $1,150. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.9% over the past year.
  • While Concord's rents rose over the past year, the city of Miami saw a decrease of 1.1%.
  • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Concord than most large cities. Comparably, Phoenix has a median 2BR rent of $1,020, where Concord is nearly three times that price.

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.

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released results for Concord from the second annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. The survey, which drew on responses from over 30,000 renters, provides insight into what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the 105 million American renters nationwide.

“Concord renters expressed very low satisfaction with the city overall,” says Andrew Woo, Director of Data Science at Apartment List. “Most categories received below-average scores.”

Key findings in Concord include the following:

  • Concord renters give their city an F overall for satisfaction.
  • The highest-rated category for Concord was the weather, which received an A.
  • Renters were also satisfied with access to public transit (A-).
  • Some areas of concern for Concord renters were local job and career opportunities (C) and the quality of local schools (C-).
  • Renters seemed most dissatisfied with safety (D), access to parks and community events (D), and affordability (F).
  • Renter satisfaction in Concord is much lower than nearby cities Berkeley (A-) and Walnut Creek (A+), but was on par with Oakland (F).
  • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction included Arlington, VA; Lincoln, NE; Pasadena, CA; Boston, MA; and Madison, WI. The lowest rated cities included Newark, NJ; Bronx, NY; Bridgeport, CT; Baltimore, MD; and Salinas, CA.
