City GuideSanta Rosa
Imagine a city in California’s bay area that is close enough to San Francisco’s bustling urban lifestyle to be convenient, but far enough away to be surrounded by the beauty of the mountainous west coast terrain. Lay a blanket of suburban comfort over it, nestle it into the southern tip of Sonoma wine country, and you’ve got yourself Santa Rosa, California. Once a tiny homestead settlement, Santa Rosa became a trading post and incorporated in 1868. It remained a slow-grow Northern California ...
What You’ll Find

Santa Rosa has some typical pricing for California, in general, but compared to most other cities in the bay area, renting is really pretty cheap. Buying is a different story, but we’ll save that for another time.

In With The New

Due to the population boom, it’s easiest to find new construction or renovated townhouses, duplexes, and larger apartment or condominium communities that are being rented out rather cheaply. These places can be a good deal because of their updated interiors and looks.

Rental homes or detached houses are pretty common, as well, but don’t expect them to be spacious lots or have large yards, especially in newly developed areas. They really try to make the most of the indoor space, assuming that you’ll go for a walk downtown or take a hike over at Annadel State Park or whatever if you’re looking to spend some time outside.

In With The Old, Too…

Santa Rosa has quite a few historic districts in town. Most commercial buildings were destroyed in the 1906 earthquake, but oddly enough, most of the houses survived and are still standing to this day (Take THAT, plate tectonics). These tend to be owner occupied, but it’s always worth keeping an eye out if that’s your thing. Historic houses may not be quite as modern (obviously), but they’re a lot more spacious and many of them are in gorgeous, charming neighborhoods.

Quality and Price

Smaller and older town houses and apartments can be found pretty cheaply (again, we’re going by California standards, so don’t get too excited) in the $600 - $1500 range depending on size and location. On the other hand, a larger house or apartment in a nicer place could set you back upwards of $2,300 a month. That’s a pretty generous price range, so let’s just say that, on average, don’t expect to find a lot of places for less than $1,000 a month. These places aren’t pits, though; most of them have spacious interiors, updated appliances, and convenient amenities, not to mention the gorgeous scenery. One thing you’re sure to find in a lot of these places though: carpeting.

Utilities and Extras

In single-family homes, you’re less likely to find any utilities included in your rent. With other types of housing, however, it varies depending on your landlord. Also with apartment-like housing, you’d be hard-pressed not to find water included. For almost all types of housing, expect to have some sort of access to a garage or parking lot, especially with houses and town homes. As for the issue of pets, that’s another thing you’ll have to do some asking about before you rent. Santa Rosa has many pet-friendly places, but there may be restrictions as to the type of pet, or a hefty fee tagged on to your damage deposit.

Getting Familiar with the Area

The neighborhoods of Santa Rosa come in many flavors. Some are official historic districts, while others are simply colloquially recognized blocks or neighborhood associations that knit the community together.

Two major highways divide the city into four basic quarters. This will make navigation a little easier when you’re trying to find your ‘hood. Since Santa Rosa has about 30 or so smaller neighborhoods, let’s give you an overview of the city by quadrants to get you familiar:

Downtown: Ok, we lied a little. There’s a fifth “quadrant” in Santa Rosa: downtown. It’s at the center of the four, so it doesn’t quite fit into one entirely, but it was too important not to include. Right in the center of the city is Santa Rosa Plaza, a large mall with chain stores for most your shopping needs. Both major highways that split the city meet in this spot, so it’s easily accessible. East and west of the plaza are more classically “downtown” areas with locally owned businesses, eateries and entertainment. The western portion is historic Railroad Square, which is a quaint little area of old buildings and businesses. Downtown housing is a split between historic districts with large, beautiful houses, pockets of new construction, and many smaller neighborhoods of single-family homes. Good for those who like to be in the center of everything, and easily walkable to whatever you may need.

Northwest: The most typically “suburban” quadrant of the city. Subdivisions, parks and residential neighborhoods full of houses both big and small. Some smaller shopping centers, as well as recreational areas are scattered throughout. This is a great place for those who desire a tree-lined street.

Northeast: Certainly one of the most historic parts of the city. Closer to downtown you’ll see gorgeous 19th century homes. Further out in all directions, new housing lines winding streets surrounded by gorgeous mountain views and California scenery.

Southeast: Speaking of scenery, the gorgeous outdoors you’ll find winding through the northeast side hit their stride on the southeast. Further out from the city you’ll find Annadel State Park, Hood Mountain Regional Park, and many other great areas for recreation, hiking, and general appreciation of nature. The housing here comes in all styles, from packs of bungalows to brand new cookie-cutter town homes and condos. With the beauty if nature so close, this part of Santa Rosa is more distant and spread-out. As you near downtown, expect smaller dwellings, lower prices interspersed.

Southwest: A more rural area of the city. This quadrant has some more affordable neighborhoods. While technically not part of Santa Rosa proper, the village of Roseland is nestled curiously close to downtown.

More Knowledge for the “Santa Rosa” File in your Brain

Here are a couple other important tips and fun facts about the city of Santa Rosa.

The Transport

The only part of the city to live in where it’s feasible not to have a car is the downtown area, but even then you’re at a bit of a disadvantage if you want to get anywhere else in town. Santa Rosa does have a bus system, The Santa Rosa CityBus, which has 17 fixed routes around the city but isn’t heavily used. To ease up some traffic congestion, a train line between other suburbs and cities in the bay area that runs through Santa Rosa (SMART/Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit) is currently under construction, scheduled for completion in 2014.

The Environment

If there’s one thing I know you’re looking forward to in SR, it’s the weather. Like much of California, summers are hot, dry and brimming with sunshine. Winters are mild, wet and rarely include even a flake of snow. The only hazardous “weather” condition to be aware of is the possibility of earthquakes. Even though they’re not an everyday worry, Santa Rosa sits along the Hayward-Rodgers Creek fault system, and so is susceptible to a shake, rattle and/or roll every now and then, but this isn’t Virginia, so most quakes are slept through anyways. The fault may be to blame for a bit of mayhem in the past, but also a lot of beauty. The city is watched over by hilly nearby mountains, and its borders are abundant with (mostly) undisturbed nature, including the previously mentioned parks and preserves on the east side. Wildlife is a common sight here, in neighborhoods and even downtown.

Santa Rosa is often referred to as a suburb of San Francisco, since it’s only about 50 miles north via the Golden Gate Bridge. San Fran may be easily accessible, but the city is by no means dependent on it. Santa Rosa is its own independent city with its own unique features. So now that you know the lay of the land, it’s time to get out in the sunshine and get looking!

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released Santa Rosa's results from the first annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. The survey, which drew on responses from over 18,000 renters, provides new insights into what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the 105 million American renters nationwide.

"Santa Rosa renters are somewhat dissatisfied with the Sonoma County city, but show high confidence in the local economy," says Andrew Tam, Vice President of Data Science at Apartment List. "The US renter population is at its highest level in 20 years, and while Santa Rosa renters generally agree that the economy is on the right track, they did express concern about safety and local crime rates."

Key findings in Santa Rosa include the following:

  • Renters gave Santa Rosa a C overall, ranking the city near the bottom one-third of our study.
  • Renters are extremely bullish about the local economy ranking Santa Rose #3 in the nation, good for an A+ grade.
  • Santa Rosa also earned an A for future homeownership, which is not surprising for this community of young families. 71% of respondents saying they plan to purchase an apartment or home in the future.
  • Santa Rosa also earned an A for quality of schools, with 71% of respondents reporting satisfaction.
  • Like many California cities, the lowest grade for Santa Rosa was a C- for state and local taxes, with only 29% of respondents reporting that they are satisfied.
  • Among Northern California cities in our study, San Francisco topped the list for overall satisfaction with an A+ followed by Sacramento (A-), San Jose (B+), Hayward (C+), Santa Rosa (C), Vallejo (C), Oakland (C-), and Modesto (D).
  • The top rated cities nationwide for city satisfaction were Plano, TX; Boston, MA; Arlington, VA; Austin, TX; and Torrance, CA. The lowest rated cities were Newark, NJ; New Haven, CT; Bridgeport, CT; Hartford, CT; and Columbia, SC.
