City Guide
Salem
Salem. Not the One With the Witches. Not the One in North Carolina Either.

Just like the rest of Oregon, there’s NO SALES TAX. Unlike in the rest of Oregon, housing prices are still fairly reasonable. Just like the rest of Oregon, you’re super close to beaches and skiing. Just like the rest of Oregon, you aren’t allowed to pump your own gas.

Most Salem apartments, duplexes and single-family home rentals are well-maintained. You’ll find many rental property ads banding about the “mid-century modern” descriptor, but the phrase is used in the loosest terms possible. Palm Springs, this aint.

Most rental properties accept pets (with deposit) and many offer month-to-month leases, which means deals for those willing to commit to a longer stay. The market isn’t nearly as cut-throat in Salem as it is in Portland or Eugene; so those willing to do a bit of research and spend a bit of extra time looking will undoubtedly discover the Salem home or apartment of their dreams.

Well, Now I’m Here - Where Should I live?

West Salem Most of the apartment rentals in this area offer the basics you’d expect: onsite laundry facilities, fitness centers, etc. Home rentals run the gamut from older neighborhoods (Chatnika Heights, Kingwood Hills) to newer construction (Brush College) Oh, and the views in this part of town are none too shabby.

South Salem Ranging from older apartments to cottages, to duplexes, to golf course living - depending on budget and needs there’s literally something for everyone in South Salem.

East Salem Looking for cheap? Welcome to East Salem. Easy access to I-5? Well, that’s just an added bonus.

Central/North Salem Ranging from apartments to condos, this area is a great place to look at!

January 2018 Salem Rent Report

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

Salem rents declined significantly over the past month

Salem rents have declined 0.5% over the past month, but have increased sharply by 8.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Salem stand at $810 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,070 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in October. Salem's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.5%, as well as the national average of 2.8%.

Rents rising across cities in Oregon

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Salem, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Oregon, 9 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 1.5% 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, Hillsboro is the most expensive of all Oregon's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,980; of the 10 largest cities in the state that we have data for, Portland, where a two-bedroom goes for $1,320, is the only major city to see rents fall year-over-year (-1.6%).
  • Salem, Gresham, and Bend have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (8.3%, 6.9%, and 6.1%, respectively).

Salem rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have increased sharply in Salem, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly. Salem is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Salem's median two-bedroom rent of $1,070 is below the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.8% over the past year compared to the 8.3% increase in Salem.
  • While Salem's rents rose sharply over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.8%), Seattle (+3.0%), and Dallas (+2.2%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Salem than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,010, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Salem.

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.
