Stuff You Need to Know When Considering a NB Move

The aforementioned lower ends of the rent spectrum are those that, natch, are the most difficult to locate. Now, I don’t mean to salt NB’s game, but even if you snag one of the cheaper apartments, rents are rising at almost 6 percent each year, so plan on a rent hike when your lease is up. Apartments may be hard to find. The vacancy rate is low, with over 95 percent of rentals occupied. Finally, although studio apartments are the cheapest to rent, they’re tiny – with an average size of 510 square feet. This makes the average studio apartment rent, $1,134, the most expensive price-per-square-footage in the OC.

So, How Expensive IS Newport Beach?

Portfolio.com chose NB as “America’s Wealth Center” in 2010. Money magazine chose NB as the number one city to “Live in if You’re Rich and Single.” Empty out the investment accounts to make the move to Newport Beach. Renting is pricey and security deposits are high.

How to Choose Your Spot in Newport Beach

Decide first if you want a quiet area or a partying area. These two considerations seem to determine the environments around NB, at least according to locals. Although the median age of a NB local is 41 years, there are lots of college students that either live or come here to party.

Your Neighbors

Your new neighbors in NB will most likely be single – less than half of the residents are married. He or she is employed because, although the city did feel the pinch of the recession, Newport Beach employees fared quite well. The city’s unemployment rate is half that of the state of California. Not only is your new neighbor employed, she makes over $100k a year, and works in the science, tech, finance or real estate industries. You’ll be relatively safe in Newport Beach, with a violent crime rate that is one-third the national average and has decreased in the past couple of years.

Although it’s possible to enjoy life in Newport Beach if you’re at the high end of the 99 percent, if you’ve got the money to rent a sweet place on the beach, life in Newport Beach just doesn’t get much better.

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.
