City Guide
Pittsburg
Pittsburg, California

Nobody’s quite sure why, but one of the founders of Pittsburg (no h) originally named it New York of the Pacific (that's like naming Hoboken the LA of the Atlantic – just sayin). A little over 30 years later it was renamed Black Diamond because they found coal in them thar hills (and forgot that coal is worth less than diamonds). Finally, when a big steel company moved into town, it was again renamed and, obviously, this time the name stuck. That is, until another big company moves to town (let's hope it's a funny name like Fuddruckers or Weinerschnitzel).

So, if you’re thinking of renting an apartment in Pittsburg, you have yourself your first piece of local trivia. You’re welcome.

Now, on to a not-so-trivial pursuit – finding you an apartment to rent in Pittsburg.

The Klondike Bar of Apartment Info

The Klondike Bar was invented in the other Pittsburgh, but it's still a delicious ice cream novelty on the other side of the nation. Pittsburg has tons of rentals to choose from: apartment complexes, townhouses, condos and duplexes. The median gross rent is $1,269. In California terms, that is pretty standard, so whether you choose a 1 BR condo or a 3 BR townhome, you'll have no trouble settling in.

Locals say you ought to try to snag a place south of the BART station in the Oak Hills neighborhood. Tree-lined streets and lots of parks make this ‘hood one of the most popular in Pittsburg. Plus, if you commute to The City (Fog City, SFO, City by the Bay, JUST NOT FRISCO), BART’s right there.

Pittsburg, like most California cities, has a higher cost of living than the average U.S. city of its size. It got hit hard during the recession and had one of the highest unemployment rates in the country. That said, apartments in Pittsburg may run rent specials to help out with the move-in cost, so be sure to check with the leasing office.

Crime rates in Pittsburg are actually improving, showing a steady decline over the past few years. The city’s crime rate is lower than the U.S. average – in fact, sleepy Petaluma in the North Bay has a higher number of violent crimes than they do in Pittsburg (plus Winona Ryder, from Petaluma, shoplifts).

So, stay out of Antioch

Nearby Antioch, with 36,000 more people, has over five times the amount of violent crime as Pittsburg, according to FBI statistics. The property crime rate, on the other hand, is higher than the state’s average. Overall, though, it’s a pretty safe little city.

Pittsburgians are right proud of Old Town, the redeveloped downtown area

The usual California-style weekly farmer’s market takes place in Old Town. You can also hobnob with folks from all over the Bay Area at the annual Pittsburg Seafood Festival held in Old Town. Since Pittsburg sits right alongside the Delta it’s a great town for boat owners. The Pittsburg Marina, also remodeled a couple of years ago, has guest slips and security cameras. It's also a great place for pet lovers to find pet-friendly apartments.

Life in Pittsburg is a little more laid back than some of the other cities in the Bay Area, and folks that live there like it that way. We think you will too. Good luck in your Pittsburg apartment hunt!

February 2018 Pittsburg Rent Report

Welcome to the February 2018 Pittsburg Rent Report. Pittsburg rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Pittsburg rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Pittsburg rents declined over the past month

Pittsburg rents have declined 0.8% over the past month, but are up moderately by 2.5% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Pittsburg stand at $2,350 for a one-bedroom apartment and $2,950 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in November of last year. Pittsburg's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 4.1%, as well as the national average of 2.6%.

Rents rising across the San Francisco Metro

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Pittsburg, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the San Francisco metro, 9 of them have seen prices rise. 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 6.2%. The median two-bedroom there costs $2,600, while one-bedrooms go for $2,070.
  • Over the past year, Berkeley is the only city in the metro that has seen rents fall, with a decline of 3.2%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $2,590, while one-bedrooms go for $2,070.
  • San Mateo has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the San Francisco metro, with a two-bedroom median of $4,220; rents were up 2.2% over the past year but remained flat month-over-month.
  • Oakland has the least expensive rents in the San Francisco metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,160; rents increased 1.0% over the past month and 1.5% over the past year.

Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Pittsburg

As rents have increased moderately in Pittsburg, a few large cities nationwide have also seen rents grow modestly. Compared to most large cities across the country, Pittsburg is less affordable for renters.

  • Rents increased significantly in other cities across the state, with California as a whole logging rent growth of 4.1% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 3.0% in San Diego, 2.6% in San Jose, and 2.0% in Los Angeles.
  • Pittsburg's median two-bedroom rent of $2,950 is above the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.6% over the past year compared to the 2.5% rise in Pittsburg.
  • While Pittsburg's rents rose moderately over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.6%), Seattle (+2.4%), and Dallas (+2.2%).
  • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Pittsburg than most large cities. For example, Phoenix has a median 2BR rent of $1,020, where Pittsburg is more than two-and-a-half times 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.
