City Guide
Newport News
Weather:

All four seasons happen in Newport News. Though the summers can be hot, Newport News is pretty mild in terms of heat and is nowhere near as uncomfortable as some of the other cities of the south. This could be due to its location near the Harbor, but no matter the reason you will be grateful. Those moving here for a bit of winter will delight in the fact that it does indeed get cold enough to snow here but you will not have to spend the entire winter shoveling your driveway or street. For all of these weather reasons, it is important to make sure your rental comes with A/C and heat and that your car is well prepared for icy bridges and slippery roads.

So, you see, a city with history and plenty of museums to show for it, doesn’t have to be boring or sleepy. Instead, it can have a bustling City Center, plenty of local shopping and access to boating, fishing and sailing. To live here is to love here. After all, isn’t Virginia for lovers?

December 2018 Newport News Rent Report

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

Currently, median rents in Newport News stand at $840 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,010 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in September. Newport News' year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.8%, as well as the national average of 1.3%.

Throughout the past year, rents have remained steady in the city of Newport News, but other cities across the entire state have seen rents increase. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Virginia, 8 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 1.8% 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, Arlington is the most expensive of all Virginia's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $2,080; of the 10 largest cities in Virginia that we have data for, Portsmouth and Norfolk, where two-bedrooms go for $930 and $950, are the only two major cities in the state to see rents fall year-over-year (-0.6% and -0.1%).

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.

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released Newport News’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.

"Newport News renters expressed general dissatisfaction with the city overall," according to Apartment List. "Some categories received average scores, and many received below average scores."

Key findings in Newport News include the following:

  • Newport News renters gave their city an F overall.
  • The highest-rated categories for Newport News were weather (A-), affordability (B) and public transit (B).
  • The areas of concern to Newport News renters were recreational activities (F), jobs and career opportunities (D), quality of local schools (D) and pet-friendliness (D).
  • Newport News did relatively poorly compared to other cities in Virginia, including Virginia Beach (A-), Norfolk (B) and Alexandria (A).
  • Newport News did relatively poorly compared to other cities nationwide, including Austin, TX (A-), Denver, CO (B+) and Seattle, WA (B+).
  • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction include Scottsdale, AZ, Irvine, CA, Boulder, CO and Ann Arbor, MI. The lowest rated cities include Tallahassee, FL, Stockton, CA, Dayton, OH, Detroit, MI and Newark, NJ.

Renters say:

  • "I like being surrounded by the military, colleges and that it’s close to bigger cities. But I don’t like the lack of employment opportunities and salaries aren’t comparable to the cost of living." – Karla P.
  • "I love that the city is diverse and that the cost of living isn’t too high. But the costs for registering older vehicles are unreasonable." – Natasha E.
  • "Love the weather, people, restaurants, activities. But I hate housing income restrictions, cost of living and traffic." – Florence M.
  • "Close access to malls and restaurants but the crime rate is high." – Anon.
