City GuideFresno
Sitting at the base of three national parks: Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia, is a city that calls itself the “best little city in America.” Fresno doesn’t see this so much as tooting its own horn but as advertising to visitors and future residents exactly what’s in store.
Sitting at the base of three national parks: Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia, is a city that calls itself the “best little city in America.” Fresno doesn’t see this so much as tooting its own horn but as advertising to visitors and future residents exactly what’s in store.

Located between Los Angeles and San Francisco, Fresno is nestled in California’s San Joaquin Valley and is home to over 480,000 residents. While it doesn’t have the fast paced lifestyle of L.A. or the note-worthy city landscape of San Francisco, it is home to arts and culture and a large number of late 20, early 30-somethings. Residing in Fresno means you don’t have to choose between the fun of cultured city life or the appeal of the great outdoors. It has everything in one central location. You can hike (Fresno is the closest city to Yosemite National Park) by day and take in the diverse cuisine and downtown music scene by night.

Neighborhoods:

The Big Raisin: New York may be the “Big Apple” but Fresno is holding it down for the more shriveled of fruits. With its ample farmland, The Big Raisin has a lot to offer in terms of fresh fruit including local wineries like those on the Madera Wine Trail.

Neighborhoods: Deciding which neighborhood to live in is as easy as pinpointing your personality. Downtown areas offer culture, coffee shops and nightlife while northern areas are more suburban. The beauty of Fresno is that you can rent here for a fraction of what it would cost elsewhere in California and there’s always something to do or see.

North Fresno: Perhaps the biggest selling point for the North Fresno area is that while it’s close to shopping, restaurants, and dog parks, there remains a small town feel. Many of the communities in this area (Woodward Lake, Dominion Heights, Van Ness Extension, Old Fig Garden) are a bit more progressive but keep their suburban appeal with a mix of older, ranch-style homes on large lots, newly constructed modern homes and an array of apartment homes. Those who like to stroll the farmer’s market or take in a holiday parade will adore living in this area of Fresno. Rental prices here can range between $450 and $900 a month, making it a relatively affordable option.

Tower District: About 2 miles north of downtown, sits an eccentric little neighborhood called the Tower District. Living in the Tower District means having your choice of early 20th century older homes such as bungalows and Craftsman style homes, as well as one-story apartment homes with small yards that feel a bit more suburban than urban. Living here also means that you can enjoy a bit of nightlife, shopping at antique shops, and the sipping of coffee at a local café or two. This area is home to many active 30-somethings and remains a little urban retail haven for residents who thrive on the culture and eccentricity of a more mainstream “city” life. The cost of living here is fairly reasonable, as studios in the Tower District can be rented for as low as $450 for all you singletons looking to relocate.

Huntington Blvd. : You’ll have no trouble finding this neighborhood thanks to its large, ivory plaque. It's the historic homes lining the wide, old-fashioned streets, however, that’ll really draw you in. Boasting old-style bungalow homes amidst large, historic houses, this part of town is very friendly. This street also boasts the largest Christmas tree in town, which is a tourist attraction every holiday season. Huntington is, in many ways, a quintessential “Americana” neighborhood. Rentals here are typically single-family homes with 2 bedrooms or more.

Arts District: Fairly new and still emerging, the Arts District is located between Downtown and the Tower District. Apartment living is what this area is all about. In fact, newer, upscale & gated apartments are very popular here, as well as lofts and “live/work” spaces. Sometimes called the “Mural District” this area caters to the arts community in Fresno and is home to some of the city’s museum and performing arts centers. While some smaller family units (couples with one child) reside here, this area is home to young professionals, artists and those who enjoy “downtown” living. *Many of the apartment rentals around town offer either covered parking (garages or driveways) or parking spaces.

A Town For All Seasons:

For those who love the great outdoors, Fresno is the perfect town to reside in due to its proximity to mountains, lakes, rivers, forests. Because of the different terrain, weather in Fresno can vary a lot. It doesn’t really stay too hot or too cold here. In the summer, the daytime high may be 90 while the night time temperature drops back down to the 50s. In the winter months, the temperature does dip to about 30 degrees and rain is expected. Living here means having the ability to participate in outdoor activities year-round.

Life is NO highway:

Fresno is the largest city in California that is not directly linked to an Interstate. Locals rely on neighborhood streets and main, city roads, such as State Road 99 and State Road 168, to get around town and to connect to the Interstate for commuting purposes. While there is public transportation, the FAX (Fresno Area Express) that serves the greater metro area, residents rely on their own means of transportation to get around.

Fresno has survived the gold mining boom, the fad of dancing cartoon raisins (YouTube it.) and a resurgence of its downtown area. Through it all it has remained diverse, both in culture and in landscape, and stayed true to its agricultural roots. With no airs about it and no need to keep up with its fast-paced, big city neighbors, Fresno is the perfect spot for those looking for a lily in the middle of a valley.

While some smaller family units (couples with one child) reside here, this area is home to young professionals, artists and those who enjoy “downtown” living. *Many of the apartment rentals around town offer either covered parking (garages or driveways) or parking spaces.

A Town For All Seasons:

For those who love the great outdoors, Fresno is the perfect town to reside in due to its proximity to mountains, lakes, rivers, forests. Because of the different terrain, weather in Fresno can vary a lot. It doesn’t really stay too hot or too cold here. In the summer, the daytime high may be 90 while the night time temperature drops back down to the 50s. In the winter months, the temperature does dip to about 30 degrees and rain is expected. Living here means having the ability to participate in outdoor activities year-round.

Life is NO highway:

Fresno is the largest city in California that is not directly linked to an Interstate. Locals rely on neighborhood streets and main, city roads, such as State Road 99 and State Road 168, to get around town and to connect to the Interstate for commuting purposes. While there is public transportation, the FAX (Fresno Area Express) that serves the greater metro area, residents rely on their own means of transportation to get around.

Fresno has survived the gold mining boom, the fad of dancing cartoon raisins (YouTube it.) and a resurgence of its downtown area. Through it all it has remained diverse, both in culture and in landscape, and stayed true to its agricultural roots. With no airs about it and no need to keep up with its fast-paced, big city neighbors, Fresno is the perfect spot for those looking for a lily in the middle of a valley.

September 2020 Fresno Rent Report

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

Fresno rents increased slightly over the past month

Fresno rents have increased 0.2% over the past month, and have increased slightly by 1.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Fresno stand at $851 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,063 for a two-bedroom. This is the eighth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in December of last year. Fresno's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 0.1%, as well as the national average of 0.3%.

    Rents rising across cities in California

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Fresno, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in California, 6 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 0.1% 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 $2,956; of the 10 largest California cities that we have data for, 4 have seen rents fall year-over-year, with San Francisco experiencing the fastest decline (-5.6%).
    • Sacramento, Fresno, and Bakersfield have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (1.7%, 1.3%, and 1.1%, respectively).

    Fresno rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

    As rents have increased slightly in Fresno, other large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more quickly. Fresno is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

    • Fresno's median two-bedroom rent of $1,063 is below the national average of $1,195. Nationwide, rents have held steady over the past year.
    • While Fresno's rents rose slightly over the past year, some cities nationwide saw increases as well, including Phoenix (+1.7%) and Detroit (+0.8%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Fresno than most large cities. For example, New York has a median 2BR rent of $2,466, which is more than twice the price in Fresno.

    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.

      "Fresno renters expressed general satisfaction with the city overall," according to Apartment List. "They gave most categories average scores."

      Key findings in Fresno include the following:

      • Fresno renters gave their city a B- overall.
      • The highest-rated categories for Fresno were quality of local schools (B+) and commute time (B).
      • The areas of concern to Fresno renters are safety and crime rate (D) and pet-friendliness and state and local taxes, which both received F grades.
      • Fresno earned similar scores to other cities in California, including Los Angeles (C+), San Jose (C), and Sacramento (C).
      • Fresno performed well compared to other similar cities nationwide, including Tucson, AZ (D), Albuquerque, NM (C), and Oklahoma City, OK (C+).
      • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction include Scottsdale, AZ, Irvine, CA, Boulder, CO and Ann Arbor, MI. The lowest rated cities include Tallahassee, FL, Stockton, CA, Dayton, OH, Detroit, MI and Newark, NJ.

      Renters say:

      • "I like it’s because it’s not really big. But there’s not a lot to do, either." – Esperanza C.
      • "I love the environment, Grizzly Stadium and the new stores everywhere. The city is working to restore downtown and to build a high-speed rail to connect us to other cities." – Anon.
      • "Love the convenient access to Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks. There’s lots of bike paths, restaurants and outdoor malls. And the school system is one of the best." – Laura H.
      • "I love the small town vibe. The freeway system could be better, but at least it doesn’t take long to go from Fresno to Clovis." – Cassandra S.
