City GuideSanta Clara
A hub for technology, a home for sports teams (soccer and football) and a city set on reducing its carbon footprint, Santa Clara is located in the Silicon Valley at the tip of the San Francisco Bay. About 45 minutes from San Francisco, Santa Clara is often referred to as the “mission city” and its mission seems to be providing residents with environmentally friendly living.

Being green is a big thing in Santa Clara. The city has its own greenhouse, features many solar powered homes and has more plans for energy efficiency up its sleeves. But it has much more to offer than earth-friendly policies. It is home to the 49ers headquarters/practice facilities (and soon their new stadium), as well as the San Jose Sharks soccer team. Golf, tennis, skate parks, a theme park, museums, shopping and business all coexist here—along with some pretty awesome palm trees! Welcome to Santa Clara, it seems as though the only thing missing is you. Let's find you an apartment!

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

Neighborhoods:

The pricing in Santa Clara, as with much of California, is a bit higher than other areas in the region - but relative to the cost of living in the area.

Agnew (95054): Agnew is an established neighborhood. The homes and complexes here were built in either the 1970s-1994 or 1995 and later. The area is comprised of apartments, condos, and single-family homes (3-5 bedrooms). Apartments around here range from average to luxury, with some offering penthouse options. Living here means about a 15 minute commute to work if you're heading into downtown Santa Clara.

El Camino Real:/The Alameda: Great walkability and a lot of character. Single-family homes (built in the ‘40s-‘60s, some even earlier), apartments, and condos make up the dwellings here. It is a growing neighborhood with residents who can walk to work, entertainments and eateries. The apartments here tend to lean a bit toward luxury and the area is close to parks, and shopping at Santana Row.

Lawrence (95051): This is what some would call an “Urban Suburbia.” Made up of studios, apartments, and small single-family homes. Many of the houses here were built between 1940-1960s (some between 70s and 1994). Most units have a washer/dryer included, as well as fitness centers and other state of the art amenities for their renters.

Downtown/City Center (95050): The area features apartments and single family homes. There are some older/historic homes here to choose from (largely Victorians) as well as newer, luxury apartments. Arguably the best part of living downtown is its proximity to everything and the availability of activities. From here it's also easy to hop on the freeway and make your way toward San Francisco or the neighboring city of San Jose. Other nearby recreation includes golf courses, historic walking tours, parks, & farmers' markets on the weekends.

Santa Clara Renting Tips:

Renting in Santa Clara means saving money on your utility costs. As a renter you can look forward to saving 30-40 percent on electricity payments. Santa Clara prides itself on offering the lowest utility costs across the board, compared to the surrounding areas.

If you are moving with a four-legged friend or are looking forward to purchasing a pet when you move, Santa Clara is the place to live. Most pets are allowed at the majority of rental communities. Of course some buildings will require you to pay extra for certain weights and breeds, but overall Santa Clara loves pets.

The weather here is virtually (high tech!) perfect for the most part. It does get hot between June and August but average temperatures are in the 70s and winters are moderate compared to elsewhere-USA. That being said, be sure your apartment has A/C and heat, but don’t be surprised if you spend days/nights with your windows open.

Transportation:

Getting around town in Santa Clara is largely done by car. The good thing is that Santa Clara is perfectly located near many major freeways and expressways, enabling you to get to San Francisco in 45 minutes, San Jose in 15, Oakland in about 50 or any other ‘ol place your little heart desires.

There are a few options as far as public transportation in Santa Clara. The ACE has morning and evening trains for commuters going to and from areas like Stockton and San Jose. For a quick trip to San Francisco or San Jose, hop on CalTrain. It stops at virtually every city between Santa Clara and those two destination points and operates seven days a week. This is great for commuters or for those who are heading into San Francisco for entertainment, art or shopping. The VTA (Valley Transportation Authority) is a bus and rail service that operates in and around Santa Clara and the Silicon Valley. The light rail service comes in quite handy for theme park days, as it has a stop right outside of Great America, as well as a stop at the Convention Center. For those looking to go a bit further, there is an AMTRAK station which leaves seven times a day with various end points.

The center of the Silicon Valley, Santa Clara is the perfect spot for the person who wants it all in one little town. Santa Clara offers something for everyone. Make it your mission to get here as fast as you can.

August 2019 Santa Clara Rent Report

Welcome to the August 2019 Santa Clara Rent Report. Santa Clara rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Santa Clara rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Santa Clara rents increased significantly over the past month

Santa Clara rents have increased 0.4% over the past month, and are up slightly by 1.7% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Santa Clara stand at $2,265 for a one-bedroom apartment and $2,839 for a two-bedroom. This is the eighth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in November of last year. Santa Clara's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.1%, as well as the national average of 1.6%.

    Rents rising across the San Jose Metro

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Santa Clara, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the San Jose 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.

    • Gilroy has the least expensive rents in the San Jose metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,351; the city has also seen rents fall by 0.2% over the past year, the biggest drop in the metro.
    • Cupertino has the most expensive rents in the San Jose metro, with a two-bedroom median of $5,273; the city has also seen rent growth of 1.3% over the past month, the fastest in the metro.

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Santa Clara

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

    • Rents increased slightly in other cities across the state, with California as a whole logging rent growth of 1.1% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 1.2% in San Francisco, 0.5% in Los Angeles, and 0.5% in San Diego.
    • Santa Clara's median two-bedroom rent of $2,839 is above the national average of $1,191. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.6% over the past year compared to the 1.7% rise in Santa Clara.
    • While Santa Clara's rents rose slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Austin (+3.3%), Boston (+2.4%), and Dallas (+2.1%).
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Santa Clara than most large cities. For example, Dallas has a median 2BR rent of $1,134, where Santa Clara 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.
