City Guide
Huntington Beach
“Chillax, brah. You’ll find a place… eventually!”

Sound familiar? Tell that Beach Boy it ain’t gonna happen without a little elbow grease—but that’s why we’re here. Who, us? Yeah. Us. Think of us as that wee French crab in The Little Mermaid. Except, instead of orchestrating your first kiss (you’re on your own there!), we’ll help you get yer arse off the surf instructor’s couch and into the sea of possibility. Apartment style, yo. Check it.

Ahh, tips for success…

Come to apartment appointments prepared. You know how many folks are planning on moving to Huntington Beach right this second? Us neither. But it’s lots—trust us. That means you gotta be up on your game. When you meet with potential landlords, have handy copies of the following: pay stubs, driver’s license (or passport if you hate fossil fuel, and therefore America), and checkbook to write out a deposit (at least $400) if necessary. Ooh, and did we mention there’s usually an application fee ($40) and required renter’s insurance ($200/year)? Keep your eyes peeled for specials like one month free or no deposit required with a yearlong lease.

Do your homework. Heaps of residents equate to heaps of complexes—and not all are created equal. Google has a great “reviews” component in Maps now; and Yelp! has been accruing reviews for a few years. Read up on the apartment complexes and managing companies you’re interested in to narrow your search.

Find a complex with a garage. If you’re a Cali native, you don’t need someone to tell you that cute lil’ VW Bug of yours can turn GE Convection Oven in no time, if left out in the sun. Apartment owners know this, too, and many offer garage parking at no extra cost. If they do want to charge for it, just keep hunting—there’s bound to be a similar complex in the neighborhood that doesn’t.

Neighborhoods and Pricing

The closer you are to the beach, the more expensive it gets (No kidding, huh?). For more exact quotes, see the breakdown below.

Main St./Oceanfront As you probably gathered from the neighborhood name, Oceanfront is, quite intuitively, by the ocean. Prepare to pay $1400/month for 1BR townhomes on Beach Blvd., however one can usually find 2BR equivalents for around $1600/month in the same area. If you can pay the fee, might as well take the single, but as far as your wallet is concerned, you should consider all the possibilities having roommates can offer.

Adams is your more residential pick. There are a lot of the tract houses and condos that dot the cityscape. Single bedroom apartments will usually run you about $600-800/month, depending on how fancy the digs are. 1BR/1BA apartments fall somewhere around $1300/month. Add a bedroom (or a few hundred square feet) and it’s sure to go up from there.

Fountain Valley/Newland is sometimes not considered Huntington Beach proper, but you’re sure to find some 2BR/1BAs out here for under $1300/month. Single apartments and studios generally run around $700/month. (Don’t fret: it’s not the Palm, but those frilly trees are still on every corner.)

Reviews of Regency Palms Apartments tout the gorgeous grounds as part of the reason they decided to call this Huntington Beach apartment complex home. It's easy to love where you live, when where you live is surrounded by spacious parks.

Wait for it… wait for it… OK paddle paddle paddle!! Rockin’ party wave, brah. Where will it take you? 1BR? 2? Beachside or 405-bound? Just send us a postcard—that’s all we ask. Make sure you shake the sand off before you send it though, that stuff is hard to get out of the carpet!

October 2017 Huntington Beach Rent Report

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

Huntington Beach rents increase sharply over the past month

Huntington Beach rents have increased 0.8% over the past month, and have increased moderately by 2.8% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Huntington Beach stand at $1,850 for a one-bedroom apartment and $2,380 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in July. Huntington Beach's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 4.3%, but is in line with the national average of 2.8%.

Rents rising across the Los Angeles Metro

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Huntington Beach, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Los Angeles metro, 9 of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

  • Santa Clarita has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 6.6%. The median two-bedroom there costs $2,500, while one-bedrooms go for $1,940.

  • Rents also increased significantly in other cities across the state, with California as a whole logging rent growth of 4.3% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 4.4% in San Diego, 2.5% in San Jose, and 1.6% in San Francisco.

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.
