City Guide
Norwalk
Norwalk, Connecticut

Do you like the beach, art and entertainment, and living within an hour of New York City? We sure hope you do, because by the look of things, you’re considering moving to Norwalk, Connecticut. If you’re not, why not take some time to learn about this popular New York town located in highly desirable Fairfield County. Now, let's find you the apartment of your dreams!

What to Expect

It's probably easiest to understand Norwalk's general vibe by understanding what it's not in relation to nearby cities.

Norwalk is Not New York Though Norwalk has been connected to New York City via commuter train for over 100 years, the development of the city was largely centered on oyster farming, particularly during the late 19th and early 20th century. Lucky for you and your apartment search, Norwalk is not New York, so rent will be cheaper, and apartments larger than your average broom closet are much easier to find!

Norwalk is Not New Canaan Norwalk's neighbor, New Canaan has large estates and golf courses prevail in this area.

But It’s Also Not Bridgeport Bridgeport has been home to some large-scale renovations, similar to the development in South Norwalk.

Neighborhood Breakdown

SoNo As the nickname for South Norwalk may suggest, this is the premier neighborhood with chic rentals, shopping and nightlife. SoNo has undergone many renovations since the 1970s, including the development of the ocean-view loft, townhouse and condo complexes. SoNo is generally considered to be anything south of the Connecticut Turnpike on the central coast. In addition to being an area with lots of stylish rentals, SoNo has the added benefit of being near the beach!

Central and North Central Norwalk encompasses the commercial districts of downtown and midtown Norwalk, north of the Connecticut Turnpike.

The further north you go, the more rural-feeling Norwalk becomes. The town of Silvermine is located directly north, with portions of town located in Norwalk proper. Silvermine was a former arts colony that has a charming, small town atmosphere. There are a few single-family homes available for rent in the Silvermine-Norwalk area.

East While both eastern and western Norwalk have a more suburban feel than central Norwalk and SoNo, West Norwalk has very limited options for rentals. You'll have a much easier time finding apartments, condos and townhouses in East Norwalk, particularly in the area between the Norwalk and Westport Metro-North stations, along Westport Avenue. Here, developments surrounding large shopping centers will put you in close proximity to everything you need.

Rental Tips

Finding an apartment in Norwalk will definitely be easier than finding one in the “Big Apple." Rentals are listed on several online apartment-hunting sites and can also be found through real estate agents. If you plan on using an agent, however, be prepared to pay a fee. Start your apartment search at least 90 days before your move-in date to guarantee that you find the apartment of your dreams.

Commuter Living

While Norwalk does have a significant business district, many Norwalkers are New York ex-pats who moved for the larger rentals outside the city. Commuting by car to anywhere in the Fairfield County area can be challenging. Rush hour headed southwest into New York begins around 7:00 in the morning and lasts until at least 9:00am. In addition to traffic headed into the city, you have to deal with traffic headed out of every Fairfield County city southwest of you. Do yourself a favor and take the train.

Okay, about that train. Metro-North! Metro-North will reliably get you into Grand Central from about a million stations in Norwalk proper and the surrounding towns in a little over an hour. Most stations in the city have parking available to commuters, too. Additionally, you can take the Norwalk Transit District buses to all of the stations, as well as around town, and even into nearby Fairfield County cities.

So welcome to Norwalk! Enjoy the arts, culture, beach and New York proximity that have made Norwalk a great city!

October 2018 Norwalk Rent Report

Welcome to the October 2018 Norwalk Rent Report. Norwalk rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Norwalk rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Norwalk rents increase sharply over the past month

Norwalk rents have increased 0.8% over the past month, and have increased significantly by 5.0% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Norwalk stand at $1,410 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,780 for a two-bedroom. This is the third straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in June. Norwalk's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.1%, as well as the national average of 0.9%.

Rents rising across cities in Connecticut

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Norwalk, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Connecticut, 9 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 1.1% 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, Stamford is the most expensive of all Connecticut's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,900; of the 10 largest cities in the state that we have data for, Meriden, where a two-bedroom goes for $1,240, is the only major city to see rents fall year-over-year (-1.0%).
  • Manchester, Norwalk, and West Haven have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (8.2%, 5.0%, and 2.3%, respectively).

Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Norwalk

As rents have increased significantly in Norwalk, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Compared to most large cities across the country, Norwalk is less affordable for renters.

  • Norwalk's median two-bedroom rent of $1,780 is above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 0.9% over the past year compared to the 5.0% increase in Norwalk.
  • While Norwalk's rents rose significantly over the past year, the city of Seattle saw a decrease of 1.6%.
  • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Norwalk than most large cities. For example, Detroit has a median 2BR rent of $890, where Norwalk is nearly twice 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.
