Moving to Folsom (With Rover!)

Some of the most beautiful house rentals in Folsom welcome the cats and dogs in your family. Expect to pay an extra deposit for your kitties and doggies that is roughly equal to the rental deposit before moving in.

You can find modern, new apartments on the lower end of the rental scale that include pool access. Luxury apartments are about double the cost of a mid-range apartment, but they are newer and offer more spacious interiors. Premier apartments also offer their residents access to more facilities, such as on-site tennis courts, larger swimming pools, and even private pools. Though there is a wide range of prices in Folsom depending on what you're looking for, expect to pay a bit more than you would in the nearby capital city.

Getting Around Like a Local

The Gold Line is the light rail service that runs from Sacramento to Folsom and back. The light rail is the most convenient and environmentally-friendly way to take longer trips throughout Folsom or to and from the bigger city of Sacramento. For the more adventurous and athletic Folsom residents, there are many dedicated bicycle trails that offer fantastic views of the town and surrounding area. You can find many apartments for rent or larger homes near these bike trails if you want to take advantage of the bike-friendly setup.

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.
