City Guide
Fairfield
Neighborhoods

When deciding where you want to settle in the Fairfield area, it's important to keep in mind that the borders amongst Bay Area sprawl are blurred. As Fairfield slips into Suisun City to the south, the neighborhoods in Fairfield proper tend to resemble this neighboring town.

Westfield Solano Mall Area Since the purchase and redevelopment, a number of new constructions have sprung up, many of which offer quality living spaces.

North and South Fairfield Fairfield is bordered to the north by Vacaville and to the south by Suisun City. Apartments located in the northern reaches of Fairfield tend to be nicer, have more amenities, and, of course, cost more. South Fairfield, along the borders of Suisun will have cheaper rentals.

Prices With the exception of the northern and southern regions of Fairfield, pricing throughout the city is predominately determined by the quality and condition of the rental in question. Decent two bedrooms will range from $850-1000 throughout town. Similar northern Fairfield rentals generally cost between $900-1100, while southern Fairfield apartments bottom out in the low $800s.

Rental Tips

Many of Fairfield's new construction properties are rented through private management companies. These apartments are best found on online apartment search websites, rather than through real estate agents. (Heyy, look at you!)

Commuting

Fairfield and Suisun Transit, cleverly acronymed FAST, operates several fixed route and express buses around most neighborhoods, including an express bus through Vacaville and as far out as Sacramento. Additionally, several FAST bus lines connect with BART stations, providing quick transportation into San Francisco proper.

So welcome to Fairfield! Wherever you end up going from here, you're guaranteed to find an affordable rental nearly anywhere in town!

August 2017 Fairfield Rent Report

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

Currently, median rents in Fairfield stand at $1,280 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,610 for a two-bedroom. This is the sixth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in January. Fairfield'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 cities in California

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Fairfield, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in California, all of them have seen prices rise. 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 state.

  • Looking throughout the rest of the state, San Francisco is the most expensive of all California's major cities outside the Vallejo metro, with a median two-bedroom rent of $3,060; of the 10 largest cities in the state that we have data for, San Francisco, is the only major city to see rents fall year-over-year (-0.0%).
  • Sacramento, Santa Ana, and Fresno have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (8.9%, 6.2%, and 6.1%, respectively).

Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Fairfield

As rents have increased in Fairfield, 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, Fairfield is less affordable for renters.

  • Fairfield's median two-bedroom rent of $1,610 is above the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.9% over the past year.
  • While Fairfield's rents rose over the past year, some cities nationwide saw decreases, including Miami (-0.8%) and DC (-0.4%).

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.
