"Growing up in northern California has had a big influence on my love and respect for the outdoors. When I lived in Oakland, we would think nothing of driving to Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz one day and then driving to the foothills of the Sierras the next day." - Tom Hanks

Having trouble with Craigslist Oakland? Can't find that special apartment for rent on Apartment Finder or Zillow? Apartment List is here to help!

Enjoy the East Bay Life

Many people move to San Francisco without ever venturing into the wonderfully local vibe of Oakland. But doesn’t that just make your new home that much better? Everything is a little more chill on the east bay, and much more affordable. This, I think you will enjoy.

Transportation. Car owners beware! Traffic and parking will become a great source of stress.Traffic gets really bad around downtown, Lake Merritt, 580, and the Bay Bridge. So when that rush hour highway begins to look like an insane asylum with turn signals, just settle into an apartment near the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit). The BART is a heavy rail commuter system, which is just fancy talk for subway. It runs through Oakland, Berkeley, San Francisco, and the east bay communities. For those without a car, there are Zipcars available throughout the downtown area. You just pay an annual fee and get a card, which you use to unlock your zipcar from the nearest location. This service is much less expensive than owning or renting a car, and it’s great for getting groceries, or going on a beer run after dark.

“Creative Types”. Do you define yourself as an interactive artistic revolutionary, or maybe just a humble dharma bum? Find salvation in creative collaborations with other artists, musicians, street performers, eccentric techies, and the like. Search craigslist and the classifieds for shared live/work warehouses. Rent is much less when split between a group of like-minded people, and the environment will be like an incubator of creative inspirations.

The Hills $$$$$

Welcome to sunshine and lollie pop land. Here, the neighborhoods are quiet.

  • Montclaire. Scenic, and an easy commute. If you can afford it, you will love it!

  • Piedmont. Slightly more affordable, and experiencing a little renaissance.

  • Rockridge. Upscale, with quirky shops, a burgeoning art scene, and just a few blocks to BART.

The Lower Hills

The lower hills are a great middle ground. Here you’ll find the bridge to the upscale. Here, you can find both quiet neighborhoods and areas of young singles seizing the day, night, and early morning.

  • Grand Lake. Right by the lake and jam-packed with joggers.

  • Trestle Glen. Tight-knit and walkable.

  • Glenview. Absolutely charming.

  • Oakmore. A quiet haven for the upper middle class.

  • Diamond District. Everything you need within walking distance: groceries, bank, park, and bus.

  • Lincoln Highlands. Nice and family-oriented.

  • Adams Point. Seriously affordable for the hills, seriously close to Lake Merritt and downtown, and seriously interesting things going on all the time. Seriously.

  • Redwood Heights. Hilltop views, upscale diversity, and family-oriented neighbors… all bordered by Highway 13, which is a straight shot to Berkeley.

The Flatlands

  • Uptown. Great nightlife scene and home to Oaksterdam University.

  • Downtown. Urban-hipster-land.

  • Old Oakland. A quirky neighborhood, an awesome farmers market, and walking distance entertainment.

  • Chinatown. Exactly how it sounds, plus walking distance to downtown… just spring for a cab ride home at night.

  • Jack London Square. High-rise living with bayside dining, jazz, and a funky weekend Artisan Marketplace.

  • Lake Merritt. Lots of fun, and many cultures blended together beautifully.

  • Fruitvale. A community of renaissance people.

  • West Oakland. A gem in transition: diverse projects, luxury condos, and work/live spaces with delightfully eccentric neighbors.

April 2020 Oakland Rent Report

Welcome to the April 2020 Oakland Rent Report. Oakland rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Oakland rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Oakland rents increased over the past month

Oakland rents have increased 0.1% over the past month, but are down significantly by 2.4% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Oakland stand at $1,760 for a one-bedroom apartment and $2,211 for a two-bedroom. Oakland's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.8%, as well as the national average of 1.9%.

    Rents rising across the San Francisco Metro

    While rent prices have decreased in Oakland over the past year, the rest of the metro is seeing the opposite trend. Rents have risen in 7 of the largest 10 cities in the San Francisco metro for which we have data. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    • Richmond has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 4.9%. The median two-bedroom there costs $2,799, while one-bedrooms go for $2,228.
    • Over the past year, Concord has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 3.6%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $3,040, while one-bedrooms go for $2,420.
    • Oakland has the least expensive rents in the San Francisco metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,211; rents grew 0.1% over the past month but decreased 2.4% over the past year.
    • San Mateo has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the San Francisco metro, with a two-bedroom median of $4,491; rents were up 0.3% over the past month and 2.0% over the past year.

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Oakland

    As rents have fallen significantly in Oakland, many large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Compared to most large cities across the country, Oakland is less affordable for renters.

    • Other cities across the state have seen rents slightly increase, with California as a whole logging rent growth of 1.8% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 1.9% in San Jose, 1.1% in San Diego, and 0.5% in Los Angeles.
    • Oakland's median two-bedroom rent of $2,211 is above the national average of $1,197. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.9% over the past year compared to the 2.4% decline in Oakland.
    • While rents in Oakland fell significantly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Austin (+3.5%), Phoenix (+3.4%), and New York (+2.7%).
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Oakland than most large cities. For example, Phoenix has a median 2BR rent of $1,106, where Oakland is nearly twice that price.

    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.

    Overview of Findings

    Apartment List has released Oakland’s results from the third annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. This survey, which drew on responses from over 45,000 renters nationwide, provides insight on what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the country’s 111 million renters.

    "Oakland renters expressed general dissatisfaction with the city overall," according to Apartment List. "Some categories received above average scores, but many received below average scores."

    Key Findings in Oakland include the following:

    • Oakland renters gave their city a D overall.
    • The highest-rated categories for Oakland were public transit and weather, which both received scores of A.
    • The areas of concern to Oakland renters are quality of local schools and safety and low crime, which both received F grades.
      • Oakland did relatively poorly compared to nearby cities like San Francisco (B+), San Jose (C) and Sunnyvale (A).
    • Oakland earned similar scores compared to other cities nationwide, including Riverside (D), Tucson (D) and Tulsa (D).
    • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction include Scottsdale, AZ, Irvine, CA, Boulder, CO and Ann Arbor, MI. The lowest rated cities include Tallahassee, FL, Stockton, CA, Dayton, OH, Detroit, MI and Newark, NJ.

    Renters say:

    • "In Oakland, everything I could possibly need is nearbyL public transportation, grocery stores, restaurants, shopping, and parks." -Stephanie P.
    • "I love the diversity, proximity to other big cities, and the culture. But I dislike the crime, high cost of living, and the lack of parking options." -Rachael N.
    • "There’s a lot to do here and there’s easy access to other places. Oakland has a lot of character, great shops and food, and great people." -Katrina G.
