City Guide
Richmond
Location, Location, Location

For those who fall in the "Dont Know Anything About East Bay" category, its located in California, in the north, across from San Francisco. It has excellent public transportation, some of the best in the nation, which includes Ferry Service, Amtrak and BART, or Bay Area Rapid Transit. Buses are also common sights. Whats especially nice about Richmond's location, as opposed to the city of SF or more southern destinations, is the weather. Oh goodness, the weather. SF suffers from heavy, dense fog year round, but Richmond, while foggy in the southern parts, is Mediterranean in climate. Warm, sunny and mild.

One more notable advantage of Richmond's position in the bay: it has the most waterfront adjacent areas of any Bay Area city. Take that, murder rate naysayers!

The heady entertainments of The City (SF) are really quite close by, and if you cant bring yourself to make it the 20-30 minutes via public transit, there are oodles of things to do in Richmond itself. So calm down, you.

Future Perfect

If youre thinking of settling here for a good long while, whether renting or owning or both or neither or whatever, then you should know this place is moving forward full speed ahead. Housing is being built by the dozens of units (every kind of home: apartments, townhomes, houses).

There are as many renters as owners, so regardless of what you pick, youre in good company. Theres just one itty bitty, tiny, hardly worth mentioning microscopic issue: low vacancy rates. But theyre building housing all over the darn place, so that will free up shortly.

Neighborhoods

There are five main neighborhoods, more or less, in Richmond and each of them can be broken down further into smaller divisions. The late improvements happening in Richmond mean more neighborhoods are developing defined qualities and generating more interest. Any future buyers or renters should get on the ground and explore more thoroughly if possible.

Central/East Richmond: There are lots of parks and walkable areas.

North Richmond: Inexpensive area and neighborhood.

Point Richmond/Marina: The Point, as its known locally, is home to all the best stuff, from parks, museums and bike trails to small town feels.

Hilltop: If you like row houses, townhomes and other smaller, cuter accommodations like two bedroom apartments, this is your jam spot. It has walkable districts and a decent vacancy rate. Its also fairly affordable for these parts.

Richmond, obviously, is a fascinating town on the bay. Richmond is poised to have and do great things in the next few years and/or decades, and you could be there when it happens.

Rent Report

April 2018 Richmond Rent Report

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

Richmond rents increased significantly over the past month

Richmond rents have increased 0.6% over the past month, and have increased significantly by 5.1% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Richmond stand at $2,100 for a one-bedroom apartment and $2,640 for a two-bedroom. This is the sixth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in September of last year. Richmond's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 2.9%, as well as the national average of 2.0%.

Rents rising across the San Francisco Metro

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Richmond, 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.

  • Oakland has the least expensive rents in the San Francisco metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,270; the city has also experienced the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 6.6%.
  • Over the past year, Berkeley is the only city in the metro that has seen rents fall, with a decline of 4.1%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $2,540, while one-bedrooms go for $2,020.
  • San Mateo has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the San Francisco metro, with a two-bedroom median of $4,330; rents were up 1.3% over the past month and 1.9% over the past year.

Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Richmond

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

  • Rents increased significantly in other cities across the state, with California as a whole logging rent growth of 2.9% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 3.1% in Los Angeles, 3.1% in San Jose, and 2.8% in San Diego.
  • Richmond's median two-bedroom rent of $2,640 is above the national average of $1,170. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.0% over the past year compared to the 5.1% increase in Richmond.
  • While Richmond's rents rose significantly over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+2.9%), Dallas (+1.8%), and Seattle (+1.3%).
  • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Richmond than most large cities. For example, Phoenix has a median 2BR rent of $1,030, where Richmond 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.

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released results for Richmond from the second annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. The survey, which drew on responses from over 30,000 renters, provides insight into what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the 105 million American renters nationwide.

“Renters in Richmond expressed very low satisfaction with their city,” says Andrew Woo, Director of Data Science at Apartment List. “They gave below-average scores across the board.”

Key findings in Richmond include the following:

  • Richmond renters give their city an F overall for satisfaction.
  • The highest-rated category for Richmond was the weather, which received a B-.
  • Renters seem somewhat concerned with affordability (C+) and access to public transit (C).
  • Categories like local job opportunities, safety, commute times, and the quality of local schools all received scores of F from renters.
  • Renter satisfaction in Richmond is much lower than nearby cities Berkeley (A-) and Walnut Creek (A+), but was on par with Concord (F) and Oakland (F).
  • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction included Arlington, VA; Lincoln, NE; Pasadena, CA; Boston, MA; and Madison, WI. The lowest rated cities included Newark, NJ; Bronx, NY; Bridgeport, CT; Baltimore, MD; and Salinas, CA.
