Finding an Apartment in Elk Grove

The typical vacancy rate in Elk Grove is 1.9%. If you don't have the time to walk everywhere, it would be pretty smart to hire a realtor to play "home finder" for you. The catch is that you have to pay for their services, but in certain situations, they are the only link between you and that house you wish to own. If really motivated, they can get you an apartment to rent even in the bleakest circumstances.

*When to rent *

There isn't an ideal time to rent apartments here, but the best way to ensure success is to start when you have enough money to pay for the deposit and subsequent rent. The housing demand here is not seasonal, but certain neighborhoods have extremely low vacancy rates, so be ready to shake hands on the spot.

What you will need

To comfortably get a house in this city, you need to impress prospective landlords. Prove to them that you are that elusive tenant for which they have been looking. Arm yourself with a good credit score, a favorable employers referral letter, and (if you are in good books with your current landlord) get a referral letter from them as well. Not all landlords will go this extra mile to let you rent their houses, but it does make it easier in case they pull a fast one on you by asking nail-biting questions.

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.


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.
