Welcome to the far North Bay, the Flats and also Jelly Belly Land! That's right you lucky new Bay Area resident, your new neighbor, the Jelly Belly factory, is the leading manufacturer of adorable mammal-shaped Easter candies! Now let's find you an equally adorable apartment!

Fairfield may be most desired for its proximity to other more populous California cities, as it is equidistant to both San Francisco and Sacramento. Fairfield does have its fair share of local activities and amenities, including a row of restaurants, bars and shops in the old downtown area, and the Westfield Solano Mall, which is chock full of the traditional chain stores and restaurants.

Guess what! Fairfield is also really close to other things! (Seriously, when is Fairfield going to change its motto to "Live here to go elsewhere!"?) The scenic Napa Valley is a little over 15 miles from town and a short drive south will put you at the many nature preserves found along Grizzly Bay. So go ahead and get sloshed on some wine then hike around in your new hometown!

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.

Rent Report
Fairfield

December 2020 Fairfield Rent Report

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

Fairfield rents increase sharply over the past month

Fairfield rents have increased 0.6% over the past month, and are up significantly by 5.6% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Fairfield stand at $1,501 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,630 for a two-bedroom. This is the fifth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in June. Fairfield's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of -5.2%, as well as the national average of -1.3%.

    Rents falling across cities in California

    While rent prices have increased in Fairfield over the past year, other cities across the state are seeing the opposite trend. Rents have fallen in 1 of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in California. The state as a whole logged rent growth of -5.2% over the past year. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the state.

    • Looking throughout the state, San Francisco is the most expensive of all California's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $2,377; of the 10 largest California cities that we have data for, 6 have seen rents fall year-over-year, with San Francisco experiencing the fastest decline (-25.5%).
    • Fresno, Bakersfield, and Sacramento have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (7.3%, 6.9%, and 2.9%, respectively).

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Fairfield

    As rents have increased significantly in Fairfield, other 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 $1,630 is above the national average of $1,095. Nationwide, rents have fallen by 1.3% over the past year compared to the 5.6% rise in Fairfield.
    • While Fairfield's rents rose significantly over the past year, some cities nationwide saw increases as well, including Phoenix (+3.9%) and Detroit (+2.9%).
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Fairfield than most large cities. For example, Detroit has a median 2BR rent of $885, where Fairfield is more than one-and-a-half 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 about the methodology on our blog.

    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.

    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.

      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 about the methodology on our blog.

      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.
