While you can find a range of corporate-owned apartment complexes, there are also rentals available from private owners. Whether luxury apartments or budget-friendly places are your style, Herndon has something for you. Expect to show proof of employment and submit to a credit check at most big complexes. This offers the exciting opportunity to show off your squeaky clean record. They might even give you a gold star.

Public transportation is consists of buses at this point, but if you can wait it out until 2017 (more like 2100 if it follows the usual pace of construction), the Metrorail’s Silver Line is scheduled to reach Herndon. If you’re driving to D.C. or the surrounding area for work or play, the Dulles Toll Road connects to I-495, which feeds into multiple options including I-66 and I-95.

    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 about the methodology on our blog.

    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.

    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.

    November 2020 Herndon Rent Report

    Welcome to the November 2020 Herndon Rent Report. Herndon rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Herndon rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

    Herndon rents decline sharply over the past month

    Herndon rents have declined 2.2% over the past month, and have decreased sharply by 4.5% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Herndon stand at $1,462 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,829 for a two-bedroom. This is the sixth straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in April. Herndon's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of -2.7%, as well as the national average of -1.4%.

      Rents falling across the DC Metro

      Rent prices have been decreasing not just in Herndon over the past year, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities in the DC metro for which we have data, 8 of them have seen prices drop. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

      • Frederick has the least expensive rents in the DC metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,607; the city has also experienced the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 4.7%.
      • Over the past year, DC proper has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 11.6%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,656, while one-bedrooms go for $1,637.
      • Arlington has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the DC metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,154; rents decreased 2.6% over the past month and 10.6% over the past year.

      Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Herndon

      As rents have fallen sharply in Herndon, a few large cities nationwide have also seen prices fall, in some cases substantially. Compared to most large cities across the country, Herndon is less affordable for renters.

      • Virginia as a whole has logged -2.7% year-over-year decline, while other cities across the state have seen rents significantly on the rise. For example, rents have grown by 6.7% in Virginia Beach and 2.4% in Norfolk.
      • Herndon's median two-bedroom rent of $1,829 is above the national average of $1,101. Nationwide, rents have fallen by 1.4% over the past year compared to the 4.5% decline in Herndon.
      • While rents in Herndon fell sharply over the past year, many cities nationwide also saw decreases, including San Francisco (-23.4%), New York (-17.0%), and Boston (-15.9%).
      • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Herndon than most large cities. For example, Norfolk has a median 2BR rent of $1,094, where Herndon is more than one-and-a-half times that price.
