City Guide

Emeryville
Emeryville is home to Shellmound, which is a huge deposit of shellfish and other animal remains left over from the meals of ancient Native Americans. This archaeological marvel was formed by a settlement that is thought to have begun more than 2,800 years ago. Adding to Shellmound with your own leftovers is frowned upon.

Emeryville is often considered a neighborhood in Oakland, but is actually its own city. With its San Francisco Bay coastline and easy access to the Bay Bridge, University of California and Berkeley, Emeryville is not like most small towns. Though having only 10,080 people in the 2010 census, the city is growing fast, and is home to an impressive list of nationally known businesses, including Jamba Juice, Peet's Coffee and Tea, Clif Bar, Novartis and Pixar Animation Studios.

Moving to Emeryville

The listing prices for homes in Emeryville will be shocking if you're coming from most anyplace else in the country. But you can make yourself feel like a bargain shopper by glancing over the prices in some of the other zip codes in Alameda County, let alone nearby San Francisco or Sausalito.

What You'll Need

Moving to the Bay Area is like having a tooth canal and a colonoscopy at the same time, unless you're lucky enough to encounter a rich old hippie who's renting out the basement in his mansion at 1972 prices to any drifter who passes through town. Emeryville might be a bit more relaxed than San Fran itself, but expect to supply a mountain of personal info when you apply for an apartment here. You'll need an excellent credit report, criminal background check, rental history, references, proof of income, first and last months' rent and a sizable deposit before you move into any type of rental properties in Emeryville. Applications fill inboxes, so apply early and often, starting at least 5-6 weeks ahead of time. The good news is that, like the rest of the Bay Area, the weather in Emeryville is mild year round, so seasonal blizzards, tornadoes and hurricanes won't affect your moving schedule.

October 2020 Emeryville Rent Report

Welcome to the October 2020 Emeryville Rent Report. Emeryville rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Emeryville rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Emeryville rents decline sharply over the past month

Emeryville rents have declined 2.9% over the past month, and have decreased sharply by 10.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Emeryville stand at $2,550 for a one-bedroom apartment and $3,549 for a two-bedroom. This is the sixth straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in March. Emeryville's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of -4.6%, as well as the national average of -1.4%.

    Rents falling across the San Francisco Metro

    Rent prices have been decreasing not just in Emeryville over the past year, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities in the San Francisco metro for which we have data, all of them have seen prices drop. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    • Over the past year, San Francisco proper has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 20.4%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $2,592, while one-bedrooms go for $2,240.
    • San Mateo has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the San Francisco metro, with a two-bedroom median of $3,007; rents went down 3.7% over the past month and 11.9% over the past year.
    • Oakland has the least expensive rents in the San Francisco metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,092; rents fell 2.1% over the past month and 9.3% over the past year.

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Emeryville

    As rents have fallen sharply in Emeryville, a few large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Compared to most large cities across the country, Emeryville is less affordable for renters.

    • With cities across the state seeing rents both rising and falling, California as a whole has logged -4.6% year-over-year decline. For example, rents have fallen by 1.4% in San Diego.

    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.

    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.
