City Guide
Los Gatos
Living in Los Gatos

Maybe no one is Walking in L.A., but in pedestrian-oriented downtown Los Gatos, it's encouraged. Trails for mountain biking and horse riding meander into the hills to get you that longed-for adrenaline fix. Still, it's not all wine and roses. Renting Los Gatos apartments isn't as expensive as in San Francisco, which is less than an hour north, but rents are going to set you back more than $1,000 a month for a comfortable one-bedroom. Living in paradise comes at a price--bummer! With an occupancy rate well over 95 percent, be prepared to spend some time finding your perfect Los Gatos apartment. 

Consider Your Commute

It's an easy drive to the roadside fruit and veggie markets as you head toward Watsonville. The beaches of Santa Cruz and the attractions of the Monterey Bay Peninsula are in easy reach. Renting an apartment in Los Gatos may make it seem that you have fallen into the perfect small town. This isn't Mayberry, however. There's an arts scene, fine restaurants, and unique shops. Los Gatos is a city that still managed, for the most part, to hold on to its historic downtown right on the edge of urban sprawl. 

One Part Research, Two Parts Patience

Finding the perfect apartment in Los Gatos might take some work. Start researching the area as soon as you begin tossing around the idea of moving here. Identify your favorites, and if necessary, get on that dreaded waiting list. Don't be too discouraged if your search has to take you into surrounding communities. Identify your price range and try to stick to it. Remember to consider properties offering bonuses like free cable or Internet or access to fitness areas. 

Small Neighborhoods

It's small relative size means Los Gatos isn't split into sharply different neighborhoods. It's more accurate from a searcher's point of view to consider the entire town a distinct neighborhood in the greater Bay Area and proceed along those lines.

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.
