Apartments here aren’t short on amenities as most feature swimming pools, breakfast bars, running trails, pet parks, fitness centers, wi-fi, some paid utilities, and in unit washer and dryers. For those academic residents, one-bedroom apartments in college/off-campus housing will run about $585 (separate bedroom, shared common space) and have study areas, individual leases, fitness centers and wi-fi.

June 2017 Charlottesville Rent Report

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

Charlottesville rents increase sharply over the past month

Charlottesville rents have increased 1.2% over the past month, and are up significantly by 4.2% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Charlottesville stand at $1,070 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,240 for a two-bedroom. This is the third straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in February. Charlottesville's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.7%, as well as the national average of 2.6%.

Rents rising across cities in Virginia

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Charlottesville, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Virginia, all of them have seen prices rise. Virginia as a whole has logged a 1.7% 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, Arlington is the most expensive of all Virginia's major cities outside the Charlottesville metro, with a median two-bedroom rent of $2,030; of the 10 largest Virginia cities that we have data for, all have seen rents rise year-over-year, with Virginia Beach experiencing the fastest growth (+2.3%).
  • Virginia Beach, Newport News, and Richmond have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (2.3%, 2.2%, and 1.9%, respectively).

Charlottesville rents more affordable than many other large cities nationwide

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

  • Charlottesville's median two-bedroom rent of $1,240 is above the national average of $1,150. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.6% over the past year.
  • While Charlottesville's rents rose over the past year, some cities nationwide saw decreases, including Miami (-1.3%) and San Francisco (-1.0%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Charlottesville than most comparable cities. Comparably, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,020, which is nearly two-and-a-half times the price in Charlottesville.

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.
