City Guide
Gainesville
Get to Know Gainesville

The city has been ranked as one of National Geographic Adventure's "Best places to live and play" (emphasis: play). Affordable housing, great music and nightlife, and lots of arts and cultural events.

Go to Gainesville in August, close your eyes and spit, and chances are it'll land on an apartment that is affordable and has a flexible lease. With the predominance of move-in bonuses around this time of year, landlords are literally paying tenants to take property off their hands. Yes, there will be close to 10,000 other people blindly spitting around town, but by and large, the early fall rental market in Gainesville is approximately the same as shooting fish in a bottle.

Newer developments frequently described as "luxury," regardless of their location, have a more rigorous application process and are more heavily managed. Keep this in mind when settling at these establishments.

Transportation

Great public transportation--including reliable city transit. Gainesville is also incredibly bike and foot friendly, making alternative transportation easy, popular and fun.

Driving around town is also pretty easy-peasy. I-75 lies to the west of town, running from the mall south, and remains pretty clear throughout the day. Though Gainesville is subject to any small city's rush hour, you can generally commute to and from anywhere in the metropolitan area in 30 minutes or less.

So welcome home to Gainesville.You'll benefit from the fun, cultural vibes of this north-central Florida city!

June 2017 Gainesville Rent Report

Welcome to the June 2017 Gainesville Rent Report. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Gainesville rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Gainesville rents increase sharply over the past month

Gainesville rents have increased 1.2% over the past month, and are up significantly by 5.1% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Gainesville stand at $780 for a one-bedroom apartment and $950 for a two-bedroom. This is the fifth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in December of last year. Gainesville's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 2.7%, as well as the national average of 2.6%.

Rents rising across cities in Florida

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Gainesville, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Florida, 9 of them have seen prices rise. Florida as a whole has logged a 2.7% year-over-year growth. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the state.

  • Looking throughout the rest of the state, Pembroke Pines is the most expensive of all Florida's major cities outside the Gainesville metro, with a median two-bedroom rent of $2,390; of the 10 largest cities in the state that we have data for, Miami, where a two-bedroom goes for $1,350, is the only major city to see rents fall year-over-year (-1.3%).
  • Pembroke Pines, Port St. Lucie, and St. Petersburg have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (5.3%, 4.7%, and 4.2%, respectively).

Gainesville rents more affordable than many similar cities nationwide

As rents have increased in Gainesville, a few comparable cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Gainesville is still more affordable than most other large cities across the country.

  • Gainesville's median two-bedroom rent of $950 is below the national average of $1,150. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.6% over the past year.
  • While Gainesville's rents rose over the past year, the city of San Francisco saw a decrease of 1.0%.
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Gainesville than most comparable cities. Comparably, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,020, which is more than three times the price in Gainesville.

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.
