Having trouble with Craigslist Kirkland? Can't find that special apartment for rent on Apartment Finder or Zillow? Apartment List is here to help!
Kirkland, WA

An Eastside classic, Kirkland is the land of waterfront parks, small-town downtown diversions, and brilliant feats of local culture. It's a Seattle suburb worth scoping out, preferably from your paddleboard on a gorgeous summer day. Without further ado, let's find you some property to rent! But first, a few notes...

Transportation

For those reliant on public transportation, Metro Transit and Sound Transit can get Kirklanders just about anywhere they need to go. Pedestrians and cyclists are in luck as well, with miles of lakeside trails, plenty of nice, wide bike lanes, sidewalks, and a central district full of amusing rest stops.

Traffic

When fighting through traffic in the Kirkland area, there are a few rules of thumb to keep in mind: • If at all possible, avoid commuting North-South.

• The traffic before 8:15 a.m. and after 6:30 p.m. is much, much easier.

• Steer clear of I-405. Don't look at it, don't think about it, don't even acknowledge its existence.

• If you have to go to Seattle, take the train. Just about every neighborhood has a Park & Ride close by.

• If you have to have your car in Seattle, then take the I-90 bridge.

• Put simply: There are no good shortcuts. Traffic on the highways will be the same as moving through slow streets and sitting at stop lights. So, plan ahead and always give yourself an extra 10 minutes to get to where you are going.

Summer Rush

Between the cool waters of Lake Washington, the unique lakeside downtown, and the beach parks, this is a city that gets heavily congested during the warmer summer months. Between people toting their kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards around and kids running throughout the grassy areas like little energizer bunnies full of nitrous oxide, things get pretty crowded pretty quickly. So, if you're looking for some lakeside peace and quiet during the summer, then head away from the city center.

Neighborhood Guide: North To South

Oskams Corner: A less dense, lower rent neighborhood, with plenty of trees, streams, and open park space. $$ - $$$

Finn Hill: On the lake, Finn Hill is a neighborhood of wealthy, sophisticated businessmen and Microsoft programmers sipping wine from their upscale waterfront mansions, and farther inland, a neighborhood of college students and young families living cheap in real estate from the 70's. $$ - $$$$$

Sweetbriar: This is a relatively small neighborhood of suburban homes on the outskirts of town. Be sure to take a scenic bike ride over to the nearby Chateau Ste. Michelle, a beautiful winery with concerts in the summer. $ - $$

Juanita: The neighborhood for people who want to have it all: awesome lakeside parks, lakefront houses and condos for rent, affordable apartments and town-homes for rent, easy access to the Sounder Rail, plenty of places to shop, drink, and eat... you get the idea, it’s got most everything. Speaking of eating, you’ll surely eat well with food from Thailand, China, Japan, Mongolia, the Mediterranean, and some good ol' greasy American-fried fish and chips. Be sure to check out the Juanita Friday Market for local fruits, flowers, and the like. $ - $$$$$

Totem Lake: Car dealerships, tire stores, strip malls, discount gun sales, pawnshops, and the classic 24-hour Denny's. You'll find some cheap apartments here, and it’s little wonder why. $

Rose Hill: Some amazing apartments for rent on Forbes lake, some equally amazing trails to the wilderness of the Sammamish Valley, and plenty of apartments for students going to the nearby Lake Washington Technical College. $ - $$$

Market: Million dollar waterfront homes next to downtown. Good luck finding a rental here, and good luck paying for it if you do. $$$$$

Highlands: Next to downtown, with some stylish house rentals and just a couple of apartments. $$$ - $$$$$

Norkik: Next to downtown, with lots of park space on the water and a couple of nearby Park & Rides. $$$ - $$$$

Downtown: A lively waterfront downtown, complete with outdoor cafes, art galleries, neat little boutiques, symphonies, operas and other sophisticated indulgences. For those who prefer a less sophisticated lifestyle, stop by the Wilde Rover for some live foot-stomping, beer-swilling Irish music. For those too young to enjoy having too much to drink, there are plenty of places to have too much to think, such as the public library (ZING!). Another option is Peter Kirk Park where music stages, a recording studio, a darkroom, year-round activities and programs challenge young minds. $$ - $$$$$

Moss Bay: Just south of downtown, this is another neighborhood of pricey waterfront condominiums and rental homes, affordable apartments, beautiful parks full of public art, paddle boarders, and crazy kids, as well as some of the best coffee on the eastside. $$ - $$$$$

Everest: A busy neighborhood of college students and young urbanites in between downtown and I-405. Here, you can find some of the cheapest apartments right next to downtown, with instant access to public transportation and Northwest University. $ - $$$

Lakeview: Southwest of Northwest University, we have another great neighborhood for students, with plenty of lakefront parks, some great eateries on the water at Carillon Point, and a couple of marinas with boat rentals. The annual classic car show, Kirkland Concours d'Elegance, takes place in this neighborhood as well. $$$

Bridle Trails: Besides the amazing Brazilian coffee, chocolates, groceries, and hair products at Kitanda Brazilian Espresso, the main attraction here is the expansive Bridle Trails State Park. Here, you will find some of the last horseback riding trails around, as well as the annual Party in the Park, a popular old fashioned county fair filled with old timey bluegrass, horse shows, and a bunch of kids having a freakin' awesome time. $$$

Houghton: Adjacent to Northwest University and Bridal Trails State Park, this neighborhood is a local favorite. Seahawks fanatics need to stop by the hometown favorite, Sarducci's, for some great subs and a wall full of Seahawk autographs from when the training camp was still nearby. $$$

So, whether you are looking for mountain views, lake views, Seattle skyline views, or just want to view your T.V. all day, Kirkland has the rentals you are looking for. Good Luck!

June 2020 Kirkland Rent Report

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

Kirkland rent trends were flat over the past month

Kirkland rents have declined 0.1% over the past month, but have increased moderately by 3.5% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Kirkland stand at $1,769 for a one-bedroom apartment and $2,204 for a two-bedroom. Kirkland's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.1%, as well as the national average of 0.8%.

    Rents rising across the Seattle Metro

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Kirkland, 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.

    • Lakewood has the least expensive rents in the Seattle metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,508; the city has also experienced the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 2.4%.
    • Bellevue has seen rents fall by 0.5% over the past month, the biggest drop in the metro. It's also the most expensive city in the Seattle metro with a two-bedroom median of $2,422.

    Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Kirkland

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

    • Rents increased slightly in other cities across the state, with Washington as a whole logging rent growth of 1.1% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 1.6% in Spokane and 0.7% in Vancouver.
    • Kirkland's median two-bedroom rent of $2,204 is above the national average of $1,194. Nationwide, rents have grown by 0.8% over the past year compared to the 3.5% increase in Kirkland.
    • While Kirkland's rents rose moderately over the past year, many cities nationwide saw decreases, including San Francisco (-1.0%), Denver (-0.4%), and Boston (-0.4%).
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Kirkland than most large cities. For example, Spokane has a median 2BR rent of $904, where Kirkland is nearly two-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.
