City Guide
What will it Take to Call this City Home?

At the risk of stating the obvious, youll need to budget for the advance rent. You’ll need a months rent as well as a deposit to snag an apartment here. Most 2-3 bedroom apartments here cost significantly more than the rest of the country. Additionally, you'll need to prepare the necessary documents to get the rental application going. No fancy paperwork is usually required here: most landlords will just ask for a credit history or background check, proof of income, and reference from your previous landlord.

Looking for the perfect home? You have to find the perfect neighborhood first. To help you make the right decision, here’s an overview of the various Martinez neighborhoods and their relative costs of living.

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.
