Sunnyvale, California Renter's Guide

Located in the Silicon Valley, this suburban enclave is home to a eclectic culture. Getting by in Sunnyvale is challenging, however, with a strong will, an adaptable attitude, and these renting tips, you will have all you need to live a happy, well-rounded life.

Tips for Renting in Sunnyvale

Getting Around. All you need to get around in this city is your own two feet. It is easily walkable, with plenty of wide sidewalks, parks, walking trails, and a greenbelt. Bicycles come in handy when travelling between different neighborhoods. The comprehensive transportation system, which includes the Caltrain into San Francisco, makes travelling between cities a breeze. Just one word of advice: if you are going into downtown San Francisco, feel free to bring a six pack for the ride, drinking is allowed. And, you can also bring your bicycle, which is nice since it takes about twenty minutes to walk to downtown from the landing station.

Weather. The weather is always pleasant in the Silicon Valley, however temperatures can vary greatly between neighboring cities. While it may be 80 degrees when you leave Sunnyvale on a warm summer afternoon, the temperature is likely to drop to 60 degrees once you hit San Francisco. These huge differences are most common in the summer, so if you are more warm-natured, pack a light jacket when travelling to nearby cities.

Neighborhoods

Downtown. Restaurants, some bars for nightlife, weekend farmer's market, live music, festivals, and pet parades.

Sunnyarts. Sooooo much going on here: theater, arts festival, bluegrass jams, pottery, painting, dance, acupuncture, soccer, shopping, and a neighborhood bar... just to name a few. This neighborhood really brings the whole community of Sunnyvale closer.

Ortega Park. Variety of nearby parks

Morse Park. A lovely greenbelt, shopping center, and an eclectic little neighborhood bar.

Snail. Convenient for commuters, with a neighborhood park and affordable rent.

Birdland. Best neighborhood for food: dessert shop, bakery, pizza and more! Plus, two great shopping centers within walking/biking distance.

Panama Park. Close to everything: shopping, nightlife, parks, and the Sunnyarts neighborhood.

Ponderosa Park. Golf course, fish market, parks, and quick access Lawrence Expressway and Camino Real.

Stratford Gardens. An affordable neighborhood with tons of great food spots, plus within walking distance to the library and the Sunnyarts neighborhood.

Cherryhill. Beautiful and convenient location next to Sunnyarts, this neighborhood comes with its own park, cherry orchard, and tennis courts.

Gavello Glen. Great, affordable location right next to Sunnyarts.

Good Luck!

It may be a challenge to get by here, but it is well worth it. Just be sure to relieve some stress every once in a while by getting out of the apartment for a day at the beach, in the nearby mountains, or in the creative incubator that is San Francisco. Days spent like this make it all worth the effort.

    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 Sunnyvale’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.

    "Sunnyvale renters expressed general satisfaction with the city overall," according to Apartment List. "With expensive rents in tech hubs, it comes as no surprise that cost of living is a source of dissatisfaction in Sunnyvale."

    Key Findings in Sunnyvale include the following:

    • Sunnyvale renters gave their city an A overall.
    • The highest-rated categories for Sunnyvale were jobs and career opportunities, weather, and safety and low crime rate, which all received scores of A+.
    • The areas of concern to Sunnyvale renters are social life and affordability, which received F and D grades, respectively.
    • Sunnyvale earned similar scores compared to other cities in California like San Francisco (B+) and San Diego (A-), but earned higher marks than Los Angeles (C+), San Jose (C) and Sacramento (C).
    • Sunnyvale did relatively well compared to cities nationwide, including Philadelphia (C+), Chicago (B-) and Miami (C+).
    • 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.
