October 2017 Palm Harbor Rent Report

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

Palm Harbor rents declined moderately over the past month

Palm Harbor rents have declined 0.3% over the past month, but have increased moderately by 3.6% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Palm Harbor stand at $1,050 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,300 for a two-bedroom. Palm Harbor's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 3.5%, as well as the national average of 2.8%.

Rents rising across cities in Florida

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Palm Harbor, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Florida, 9 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 3.5% 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, Pembroke Pines is the most expensive of all Florida's major cities, 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 (-0.3%).
  • Orlando, Port St. Lucie, and Tampa have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (6.6%, 6.4%, and 5.4%, respectively).

Palm Harbor rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

  • Palm Harbor's median two-bedroom rent of $1,300 is above the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.8% over the past year compared to the 3.6% increase in Palm Harbor.

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.


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.

Palm Harbor
Moving to Palm Harbor


Florida is not called the Sunshine State because its overcast. This is the state where visitors come from all over the country to turn that shade of bronze that can only be accomplished by spending several hours in the company of the universe's brightest star. Though Palm Harbor is far removed from the throngs of tourists who visit the state each year, the weather and pristine beaches that attract them are practically right next door. Depending on where you live, they may be as close as your own backyard. Needless to say, it gets warm here and preparations should be taken when moving to ensure the best experience. Central air is considered a luxury in some regions of the country; here it is a necessity. Check with your apartment complex or landlord while youre looking and ensure that cooling yourself in your new home is going to be hassle-free.


Most of the people who live in this region commute to work. This means a short trip down the interstate to St. Petersburg or Tampa. Public transit does exist in the form of buses; however, this is mostly for within the city limits. With the abundance of local attractions, including beaches, parks and even Disney World, you will want to drive your own vehicle if you can--even with the imminent threat of traffic looming overhead. Things are not as close together as they are in some of the bigger cities, and the added convenience of being able to drive to where youre going is well worth it. Palm Harbor is north of Clearwater and Tampa Bay, and Hwy 19 makes for convenient access to both cities, via route 60 and I-275.


In all seasons, Palm Harbor loves to throw a good festival. This is an outdoor community with a lot going on so be ready to jump in! The Citrus Festival, which is held annually in April, features carnival rides, a dance competition, a bake-off and more, with free admission. The celebration is a memorial of the towns heritage. Two local events offer opportunities to taste samples from local restaurants. The specialty of the house is generally seafood, of which there is plenty to be had, often extremely fresh. The First Friday event offers children's rides and games for family-oriented fun. Want even more community excitement? The Taste of Palm Harbor is held in October, offering live music and entertainment.

Neighborhoods in Palm Harbor

Its hard to say that there are any bad neighborhoods in Palm Harbor. Everywhere you look there are palm trees, beautiful beaches, waterfront property, and ranch-style Spanish-inspired adobe houses. Complete with red tile roofs, this is a paradise tucked away in the undiscovered western coast of Floridas mainland. To the west is St. Josephs Sound and a string of keys whose splendor rivals that of their more famous neighbors to the south, and without the long drives or excessive traffic delays.

Ozona/Crystal Beach:Believe it or not, even though this is prime real estate in Palm Harbor, Ozona and Crystal Beach boast a much lower rental average than the rest of the state. There are plenty of good deals to be had for those savvy enough to search for them. During the off season, vacancy rates are at their highest, and more than enough one bedroom apartments and even up to three bedroom houses are available to go around. The area is a popular marina for fishermen and yacht enthusiasts in the area, and it is not uncommon to come upon more than a few sail boats dotting the horizon. Ahoy!$$$$

Innisbrooke:Glorious Spanish colonial mansions and miles of uninterrupted riverfront make up a large portion of this neighborhood. There are also apartment homes and patches of well kept residential establishments. This area is very seasonally sensitive. During mid-season, there is a large number of vacancies due to the temporary nature of many of the residents. Like most college towns and tourist areas, the best deals are to be had when the locals are home and the out-of-towners are, well, out of town. Swoop in and catch a sweet pad for a low price with the right timing. $$$

Town Center:As the name implies, this is the center of it all for Palm Harbor. Restaurants of all kinds, especially seafood and southern cooking, are around every corner. From fried oysters to fried chicken to baked salmon, its all here. This is the commercial center for the city. Start your apartment search here for 1 bedroom apartments and, if youre lucky, all bills paid buildings. If you venture into the neighborhoods you may even find a few three bedroom houses for rent. The streets are quiet and the houses are off the street, nestled among groves of palm trees and various citrus plants. Picture well kept medians and laid back lifestyles. $$

Curlew:This is the perfect neighborhood for families. Larger houses with modern designs are the most common sight. Sticking with traditional Spanish-themed Florida architecture, you will find a lot of two and three bedroom single family homes with garages and their own driveways. This is the kind of place where children play on the street before dusk and the smell of barbecues in backyards fills the air in the springtime. This is a very peaceful and relaxing place to call home. Home prices are slightly higher here than surrounding areas, but for the benefits it is definitely worth it. You will be surrounded on all sides by commercial districts that make shopping and daily routines very convenient. $$$$

Living in Palm Harbor

Life in Palm Harbor is like life in any near-tropical, small-town, suburban neighborhood. There are palm trees, cool gulf breezes and magnificent sunsets every day. The temperature generally hovers around the 60s in the winter and averages to the high 80s in the summer, though it can get a lot warmer in July. Citrus trees are plentiful everywhere in the state. If youre lucky enough to have one in your own yard (which a lot of people are) you will have enough home-grown fruit to supply you for the better portion of the year. Better get that juicer out! If you live away from such amenities, farmers' markets can be found with very little effort, all offering the best quality locally grown produce at much more reasonable rates than most chain stores.
