Olympia, WA

Welcome to Olympia, the scenic Washington state capital, the home to the haven for higher education at The Evergreen State College and a wonderful place. If you’re in the market for a great apartment but don’t know where to start, you’ve come to the right place. Let’s find you that rental so you can start living here!

Whether you’re looking for great outdoor activity, interesting art, or live bands, Olympia has really got it all. Outdoorsy types enjoy the proximity to beautiful forests, state parks and lakes, while art and music lovers can enjoy Olympia’s status as one of the Puget Sound’s cultural capitals. Evergreen State keeps the city lively, so there’s also plenty of nightlife to keep your after hours filled. Keep in mind, though, that the Pacific Northwest rains are no joke. Prepare to pack away your sunglasses for a solid five or so months of the year.

The rental market in Olympia is, well, competitive. Because Olympia is a fairly affordable and desirable city, locals snatch up many of the best rentals as soon as they hit the market, and you may have to go on a mile-long waiting list for the apartment of your dreams. Olympians love the locals, so if you have references in town you’ll be more likely to secure an apartment.

Many of the city’s apartment rentals are located to the north of the city center close to The Evergreen State College’s campus. Student demand has made many of these rentals more expensive.. However, if you’re looking for flexible leases and studio apartments for rent, this will be the best area for you. One bedrooms in this area generally range from $600-$800.

The neighborhoods to the east and west of the city center have a number of inexpensive apartments for rent in various types of buildings. Olympia is hemmed in to the south by the cities of Tumwater and Lacey and to the north by the Sound. The further south on the east side of town, the more suburban-type rentals you’ll find. Many of these places have amenities such as gyms and clubhouses. Rents here typically range from $700-$900 for a two bedroom.

Living in southern Olympia on the west side will put you close to the Capital State Forest, with 91,000-acres of protected land. Northwest Olympia is also a highly desirable area with several available rental homes. These neighborhoods tend to be more settled and dominated by homeowners. However, you can occasionally find great rental homes for $1200-$1400.

With so much to do outdoors, and so many animal-lovers, it’s no big surprise that finding a pet-friendly apartment in Olympia will be no sweat. Big, small and all sizes in between are generally welcome at most area rentals.

Welcome to Olympia! Though you may have to put up a good fight to secure your wonderful rental, there will be plenty in town to make you love your new home once you do. Good luck and happy hunting!

Rent Report

May 2018 Olympia Rent Report

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

Olympia rents declined marginally over the past month

Olympia rents have declined 0.2% over the past month, but have increased significantly by 4.0% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Olympia stand at $980 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,220 for a two-bedroom. Olympia's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 2.2%, as well as the national average of 1.5%.

    Rents rising across cities in Washington

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Olympia, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Washington, all of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 2.2% 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, Bellevue is the most expensive of all Washington's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $2,300; of the 10 largest Washington cities that we have data for, all have seen rents rise year-over-year, with Federal Way experiencing the fastest growth (+6.8%).
    • Kent, Tacoma, and Vancouver have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (4.3%, 4.0%, and 3.9%, respectively).

    Olympia rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

    As rents have increased significantly in Olympia, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Olympia is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

    • Olympia's median two-bedroom rent of $1,220 is slightly above the national average of $1,170. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.5% over the past year compared to the 4.0% increase in Olympia.
    • While Olympia's rents rose significantly over the past year, the city of DC saw a decrease of 0.2%.
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Olympia than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,060, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Olympia.

    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.
