City GuideVista
While Vista may just be a road sign for commuters between L.A. and San Diego, the few and the smart have chosen to make this city their permanent home. Not ready for the commitment? That's o.k. That's what apartments are for... and duplexes, and fourplexes, and rental homes, and garage apartments. There are tons of rental options in a variety of locations with their own unique characteristics.

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

Apartment Hunting Tips

Transportation. Vista has public transportation, but no one uses it. A ten minute drive to the beach takes at least an hour by bus. You could get there quicker on a bike. In fact, Vista is such a small city, you can get just about anywhere on a bicycle. So, save your bus fare money and hop on your bicycle. It's always a nice ride in this sunny southern California weather.

Neighborhood Breakdown

North

Look for apartments in the northern neighborhoods if you’re a fan of camping, fishing and horseback riding at the nearby Guajome County Park. It's a large, beautiful park with marshes and lakes, campsites, and green, grassy hills for day time picnics. There is also a bit of a night life at the neighborhood bars. You can shoot some pool at Jim's Vista Lounge, or try some handcrafted brews at the Prohibition Brewing Company.

Central

Here you can spend your days watching live theater under the stars, enjoying the Wave Waterpark, meandering through the shops and eateries of the city center, and enjoying a relaxing walk through one of the neighborhood parks. Enlighten your body with yoga and dance classes by day, and then hop between karaoke bars and brewpubs by night. For bowling, dancing, laser light shows, arcade games, beers, and cocktails, check out the Vista Entertainment Center.

South

On the south side, you can find the big and beautiful Buena Vista Park, as well as a country club, a shopping center, and tons of live music just a little farther south in the City of San Marcos.

East

There are few apartments on the east side of Vista. It's a very suburban area, with a few gated communities, a country club to the north, and tons of open space. Look for rental homes in these neighborhoods, and be sure to take frequent visits farther east to Dixon Dam, Hellhole Canyon Preserve, and way out to the Palomar Mountain State Park.

West

Live on the west side for a location near the San-Shi Judo classes, and the live music and beaches in nearby Oceanside, Carlsbad, and Encinitas. Not feeling the Zen lifestyle? Well, head south to Majestic Farms for some horseback riding.

Whether you are moving from across town, the state, the country, or the border, there are plenty of apartments ready and waiting to be your new home.

August 2019 Vista Rent Report

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

Vista rents have remained flat over the past month, however, they are up slightly by 1.1% year-over-year. Currently, median rents in Vista stand at $1,439 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,867 for a two-bedroom. Vista's year-over-year rent growth is level with the state average of 1.1%, but lags the national average of 1.6%.

    Rents rising across the San Diego Metro

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Vista, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the San Diego metro, all of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

    • Chula Vista has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 1.8%. The median two-bedroom there costs $2,166, while one-bedrooms go for $1,670.
    • Over the past month, Encinitas has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 1.9%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $2,447, while one-bedrooms go for $1,886.
    • National City has the least expensive rents in the San Diego metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,349; rents were up 1.1% over the past month but remained flat year-over-year.
    • Carlsbad has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the San Diego metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,486; rents decreased 0.9% over the past month but were up 1.7% over the past year.

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Vista

    As rents have increased slightly in Vista, a few large cities nationwide have also seen rents grow modestly. Compared to most large cities across the country, Vista 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 1.5% in San Jose, 1.2% in San Francisco, and 0.5% in Los Angeles.
    • Vista's median two-bedroom rent of $1,867 is above the national average of $1,191. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.6% over the past year compared to the 1.1% rise in Vista.
    • While Vista's rents rose slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.7%), Austin (+3.3%), and Dallas (+2.1%).
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Vista than most large cities. For example, Phoenix has a median 2BR rent of $1,085, where Vista is more than one-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.
