City Guide
Victoria
Victoria, Texas

Welcome to Victoria, a Texas town with a lot of history, a diverse population, and as many residents boast, big city amenities with a small town vibe. Now, let’s get started on your apartment hunt!

A Beginner’s Guide to Victoria

Victoria has a long colonial history, as settlers from France and Spain have inhabited the region since the late 17th-century. Much of Victoria’s history has been preserved in the city’s historic districts as well as museums and sites dedicated to the forts and settlements supporting American expansion. Though the area has a sordid reputation in terms of racism and discrimination, a large portion of Victoria is Hispanic (almost 50%), and the city remains fairly committed to diversity.

The city is one the largest in the region, and has many amenities that its neighboring towns don’t. Victoria has all of the box stores, chain restaurants and strip malls that you’ll need. There are even some independently owned restaurants and stores sprinkled throughout town.

However, this is East Texas we’re talking about, so don’t expect any cushy East Coast liberal or California hippie things in Victoria, like for instance, sushi, organic food stores, or cinemas that show R rated movies.

Instead, take up hunting, fishing and other East Texas outdoor activities at nearby Lake Texana. Being just 30 miles from the beach, you’ll have easy access to water sports and swimming. In addition, Victoria’s Riverside Park is home to the Texas Zoo that has over 200 species of plants and animals that are indigenous to Texas.

Health-wise you’ll be totally set in Victoria. There are two well-regarded hospitals in town that have specializations in a number of different conditions, including orthopedic surgery and heart disease.

Weather and Other Concerns

Victoria is known for its hot, humid summers, with average temperatures generally going above 90 degrees in June, July, and August. Because of the humidity and high temperatures, allergy season can be intense in this region, so if you’re a hay fever sufferer be sure to pack plenty of tissues.

Because Victoria is located 30-miles from the coast, it is generally out of range of the major brunt of hurricane systems that pummel the Gulf Coast of Texas. But be prepared for wind and rain when these hurricanes make landfall.

Neighborhoods

South Victoria

South Victoria is where you’ll find the historical districts that connect Victoria to its past. Beginning in the historical downtown area, neighborhoods with an urban feel extend southwards. Here, homes on the National Register of Historic Places have been renovated by residents to something of their original splendor. While there are not as many rentals in the historical areas, some duplexes can be located amongst renovated blocks.

The southeastern portion of Victoria is home to the University of Houston-Victoria and Victoria College, both of which share a campus. Here there are many rentals available in houses and apartment complexes that are close to shopping, dining, and entertainment. Unlike rentals near many other colleges, the area surrounding theses schools is quite safe and moderately quiet.

The rest of south Victoria is also fairly old when compared to the northern portions of town. While the reputation of south Victoria is fairly spotty, you can find pockets of great neighborhoods amongst some of the older homes and rentals, particularly in the areas of restored historical homes. Two bedrooms in this area generally range from $500-800.

North Victoria

North Victoria is by and large newer and better regarded by Victoria residents. Here there are a number of developments with apartments, duplexes and condos for rent, as well as some houses located in suburban developments. All of the north side has a good safety record, but is generally slightly more expensive than the south side, with two bedrooms going for between $650-800.

Rental Tips

When choosing between the north and south sides, consider the make-up of the neighborhoods. The new construction and development on the north side means a more suburban feeling neighborhood that is not easily walkable, but is in close proximity to the city’s mall, box stores, and chain restaurants. The south side has a more urban feel and is close to public transportation, but is considered slightly more dangerous.

While most of the Victoria housing market is dominated by homeowners, many rentals throughout town can be found without the aid of a realtor through online apartment searches or in the classifieds of the local paper, the Victoria Advocate.

Prospective renters will generally be subject to a credit check, application fee of up to $30, and may also have to provide proof of income documentation. Deposits for most Victoria rentals are generally less than one month of rent.

Getting Around

While public transportation in Victoria is readily available, most Victoria residents, particularly those that live in the northern reaches of town, will benefit from having a car. A strong highway system and that small town feel contribute to an overall pleasant rush hour with few delays.

Victoria Transit operates buses throughout the city, approximately every 30 minutes from the downtown transit center.

So welcome to Victoria, Texas! Enjoy your new residence in one of Texas’s big, small towns!

April 2018 Victoria Rent Report

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

Victoria rents declined moderately over the past month

Victoria rents have declined 0.3% over the past month, and are down significantly by 3.2% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Victoria stand at $740 for a one-bedroom apartment and $920 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in January. Victoria's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 2.1%, as well as the national average of 2.0%.

Rents rising across cities in Texas

While rent decreases have been occurring in the city of Victoria over the past year, cities in the rest of the state are seeing the opposite trend. Rents have risen in all of the largest 10 cities in Texas for which we have data. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 2.1% 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, Plano is the most expensive of all Texas' major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,410; of the 10 largest Texas cities that we have data for, all have seen rents rise year-over-year, with Arlington experiencing the fastest growth (+5.4%).
  • Houston, Laredo, and Plano have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (2.8%, 2.6%, and 2.3%, respectively).

Victoria rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have fallen significantly in Victoria, many large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Victoria is also more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Victoria's median two-bedroom rent of $920 is below the national average of $1,170. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.0% over the past year compared to the 3.2% decline in Victoria.
  • While rents in Victoria fell significantly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+2.9%), Atlanta (+2.2%), and Denver (+1.9%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Victoria than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,060, which is more than three times the price in Victoria.

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.
