City Guide
Auburn
You know what really grinds my gears?

The daily grind is a big pain in the rump when driving Auburn's major highways around rush hour. Facing the nightmarish traffic daily will drain energy, time, and sanity, so finding an apartment that avoids problem areas is key. Roads to avoid during rush hour are the highways and the major north/south routes, such as Auburn Way and A Street. The train tracks also make east-west travel less than efficient. As in most cities, you will want to live and work on the same side of town to avoid traffic jams and potential mental breakdowns of frustration and traffic-based rage.

For public transit commuters, there are several bus routes; however, you will need to find a home in the valley, or within walking distance of one of the very few bus stops that exist outside of the city center. For Seattle commuters, the Sounder Station in downtown is the key to traffic-less travel, with an easy-breezy train that's very nice, although the service schedule is somewhat limited. Pedestrians and cyclists can also enjoy over 23 miles of trails that run through parks, along the river, as well as through urban areas.

Caveat Emptor!

Trains, planes, and traffic create a very noisy environment throughout the city center. Some people enjoy the sounds of urban life, and the nostalgic noise of trains blowing their whistles and hustling down the tracks. However, if you want some peace and quiet then look to the hills for pleasantly boring, yet scenic suburban neighborhoods. It should also be noted that, in a city with two major rivers and dozens of lakes, there are quite a few flood-prone areas. In most cases, apartments are not responsible for anything that gets damaged in a flood, so renters in the valley should consider purchasing renter's insurance. Don't worry, it's not expensive.

Land of Opportunity

Before you get all fearful and apprehensive though, you should know that Auburn is a great city. Seattle’s star is about as high as it can go right now, but unfortunately so is its cost of living. Auburn provides a great respite from both the chaos of Seattle and the price point. It’s got all the amenities you need, plenty of culture and no shortage of simple, quiet streets on which you can walk the dog, practice cartwheels or revive your old lemonade stand business. Now it's time to get into the swing of things! Good luck in your hunt to you new residents, as well as ye olde ones. Auburn awaits.

Rent Report
Auburn

January 2018 Auburn Rent Report

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

Auburn rents declined marginally over the past month

Auburn rents have declined 0.1% over the past month, but are up significantly by 4.7% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Auburn stand at $1,320 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,640 for a two-bedroom. Auburn's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 3.7%, as well as the national average of 2.8%.

Rents rising across the Seattle Metro

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Auburn, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Seattle metro, all of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

  • Kent has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 6.4%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,740, while one-bedrooms go for $1,400.
  • Over the past month, Seattle proper has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 1.4%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,640, while one-bedrooms go for $1,310.
  • Lakewood has the least expensive rents in the Seattle metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,390; rents rose 5.1% over the past year but remained flat month-over-month.
  • Bellevue has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Seattle metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,260; rents fell 0.4% over the past month but rose 2.8% over the past year.

Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Auburn

As rents have increased significantly in Auburn, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Compared to most large cities across the country, Auburn is less affordable for renters.

  • Rents increased significantly in other cities across the state, with Washington as a whole logging rent growth of 3.7% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 7.3% in Vancouver and 2.9% in Spokane.
  • Auburn's median two-bedroom rent of $1,640 is above the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.8% over the past year compared to the 4.7% rise in Auburn.
  • While Auburn's rents rose significantly over the past year, the city of DC saw a decrease of 0.3%.
  • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Auburn than most large cities. For example, Spokane has a median 2BR rent of $870, where Auburn is more than one-and-a-half times that price.

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.
