The Master Plan

Unlike many Southern California communities, which grew and spread unchecked like wildfire throughout the decades, Thousand Oaks (along with neighbor Newbury Park) is a master planned city. What does this mean for Thousand Oaks residents? Well, for one, it means that once the city is officially full (which it now is – according to the almighty master plan), it cannot continue to spread outward. Hence, the never-ending sprawl, pollution, and congestion issues that plague so many other SoCal cities don’t affect Thousand Oaks. In fact, residents are able to enjoy more than 15,000 acres of nature reserves without having to worry about someone paving paradise and putting up a parking lot (sorry, Joni Mitchell, we couldn’t resist…)

A Thousand Reasons to Settle in Thousand Oaks

Actually, we only have a few reasons, but they might be worth a thousand. Thousand Oaks is undeniably one of California’s most visually stunning cities; an oak tree-lined Shangri-La that features both mountain and ocean views and rarely – if ever – climbs above 80 degrees or below 50. The city also boasts numerous parks, cycling paths, horse trails, hiking hotspots, beaches, and recreational centers. The nightlife scene is equally impressive, and you will have your pick of numerous art gallery/live music venues, wine, beer, and martini bars, and headliner-worthy comedy clubs.

Rent Report
Thousand Oaks

December 2020 Thousand Oaks Rent Report

Welcome to the December 2020 Thousand Oaks Rent Report. Thousand Oaks rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Thousand Oaks rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Thousand Oaks rents increased slightly over the past month

Thousand Oaks rents have increased 0.2% over the past month, and have increased moderately by 2.4% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Thousand Oaks stand at $2,069 for a one-bedroom apartment and $2,389 for a two-bedroom. This is the sixth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in May. Thousand Oaks' year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of -5.2%, as well as the national average of -1.3%.

    Rents falling across cities in California

    While rent prices have increased in Thousand Oaks over the past year, other cities across the state are seeing the opposite trend. Rents have fallen in 1 of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in California. The state as a whole logged rent growth of -5.2% over the past year. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the state.

    • Looking throughout the state, San Francisco is the most expensive of all California's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $2,377; of the 10 largest California cities that we have data for, 6 have seen rents fall year-over-year, with San Francisco experiencing the fastest decline (-25.5%).
    • Fresno, Bakersfield, and Sacramento have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (7.3%, 6.9%, and 2.9%, respectively).

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Thousand Oaks

    As rents have increased moderately in Thousand Oaks, other large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Compared to most large cities across the country, Thousand Oaks is less affordable for renters.

    • Thousand Oaks' median two-bedroom rent of $2,389 is above the national average of $1,095. Nationwide, rents have fallen by 1.3% over the past year compared to the 2.4% increase in Thousand Oaks.
    • While Thousand Oaks' rents rose moderately over the past year, some cities nationwide saw increases as well, including Phoenix (+3.9%) and Detroit (+2.9%).
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Thousand Oaks than most large cities. For example, Detroit has a median 2BR rent of $885, where Thousand Oaks is more than two-and-a-half times that price.

    For more information check out our national report. You can also access our full data for cities and counties across the U.S.

    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 about the methodology on our blog.

    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.

    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.

      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 about the methodology on our blog.

      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.

      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.
