January 2019 National City Rent Report

Welcome to the January 2019 National City Rent Report. National City rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the National City rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

National City rents decline sharply over the past month

National City rents have declined 12.7% over the past month, and are down sharply by 11.2% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in National City stand at $1,030 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,340 for a two-bedroom. National City's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 0.3%, as well as the national average of 0.9%.

Rents rising across the San Diego Metro

While rent prices have decreased in National City over the past year, the rest of the metro is seeing the opposite trend. Rents have risen in 8 of the largest 10 cities in the San Diego metro for which we have data. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

  • Other cities across the state have seen rents slightly increase, with California as a whole logging rent growth of 0.3% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 3.7% in San Jose, 2.4% in San Francisco, and 1.5% in Los Angeles.
  • National City's median two-bedroom rent of $1,340 is above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 0.9% over the past year compared to the 11.2% decline in National City.
  • While rents in National City fell sharply over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Austin (+3.4%), Phoenix (+3.3%), and New York (+2.7%).

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.
