City GuideFairfax
A history dating back to the 18th century gives the city of Fairfax, Virginia a “sense of place,” even though it is located within one of the most heavily populated areas in the east.

Considered separate from Fairfax County, the city nevertheless serves as the county seat. With Washington, D.C. just a short drive away, Fairfax offers a combination of opportunity and growth while retaining its historical charm. The Fairfax Museum and Visitor’s Center showcases the city’s Civil War-era heritage and provides a doorway to other sites in the region, including Manassas and Skyline Drive. Civil War re-enactments, historical sites, art shows, theatrical performances, and various festivals ensure that there's always plenty to do in Fairfax.

Finding an Apartment in Fairfax

Being prepared well in advance of starting your search for places to rent in Fairfax will make the process go much more smoothly. Try going to meet with a landlord empty-handed, and you won't be signing any apartment lease. Instead, have a recent credit report, rental history, references, and proof of income available for prospective landlords. While housing in this region is more expensive than in most, the benefits of life in the productive and charming city of Fairfax is worth the price.

Property rentals here come in all shapes and sizes, including townhouses, condominiums, single homes, and apartments. You'll find everything from basic studio dwellings to premier apartments that come complete with furnishings and on-site swimming pools. This is a popular place to live and work, so start the search for a new home early. It's also not for the faint of wallet, with real estate being among the most expensive in the country. If you do find a suitable place within your budget, have all your papers and money in order--you may have to pounce!

Fairfax Neighborhoods

The city encompasses a number of neighborhoods with a wide range of places for rent. Here's a speedy insider's guide to the various 'hoods:

Mantua: Found in the northeast corner of the city, the prices here are mid-range to high. Eakin Community Park offers trails and woodlands for hiking and outdoor fun. $$$$-$$$$$

City Center: This area is just what it says. It's located in the heart of the city, with Fairfax Boulevard running through its center. Housing for rent is more affordable than in some other areas of the city, and the central location offers easy access to dining and shops downtown. $$$$

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released Fairfax’s results from the third annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. This survey, which drew on responses from over 45,000 renters, provides insight on what states and cities must do to meet the needs of 111 million American renters nationwide.

"Fairfax renters expressed general satisfaction with the city overall," according to Apartment List. "However, ratings varied greatly across different categories, indicating that even though renters love Fairfax, some aspects can be better."

Key findings in Fairfax include the following:

  • Fairfax renters gave their city a B overall.
  • The highest-rated categories for Fairfax were jobs and career opportunities, safety and low crime rate and quality of local schools, which all received A+ grades.
  • The areas of concern to Fairfax renters are commute time and state and local taxes, which both received F grades.
  • Fairfax ranks high for renter satisfaction, as do Arlington, VA (A) and Alexandria (A).
  • Fairfax earned similar scores to other cities nationwide, including Portland, OR (B), Atlanta, GA (B) and Dallas, TX (B).

  • "Love the schools, entertainment and career opportunities. Hate the cost of living and the traffic." – Tim W.
  • "Very expensive, but clean and safe." – Carolina A.
  • "The schools and parks are wonderful. There are plenty of trails to wander. The area and surrounding cities are not very affordable, but it beats commuting an hour or more to work." - Shannon
