City Guide
Moving to Town

Before moving to Herndon, save up those funds. With Washington, D.C. so close by, prices are pretty high compared to some areas of the state. 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.

Neighborhoods... Or Not 

Neighborhoods in Herndon are pretty much divided up by housing subdivision. When it comes to apartment rentals, units are located all throughout the town, though not so much in distinguishable neighborhoods.

Occupying yourself in Herndon

When living in rental apartments in Herndon, travel to Washington, D.C. for entertainment isn’t necessary. Plenty of ways exist for the town residents to entertain themselves. There’s the ominous-for-the-animals-named Frying Pan Farm Park, where visitors become educated in the workings of a 1920s-era farm that offers wagon rides and comes complete with a country store. History buffs should visit Herndon Train Depot, home to railroad memorabilia and information about good ole’ Commander Herndon. The town is also no stranger to celebrations and festivals, like the Labor Day Jazz Festival and the four-day Herndon Festival with games, fireworks, food and live entertainment among other things. Now that you have all this information, you can impress your new Herndon neighbors with area trivia.

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.


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.
