Silverdale
If you've never been to a Naval Undersea museum, you've haven't lived--or, at least, lived in Silverdale, Washington.
If you've never been to a Naval Undersea museum, you've haven't lived--or, at least, lived in Silverdale, Washington.

Silverdale is a census-designated place in Kitsap County, Washington. It’s located on the Kitsap Peninsula, basically tucked into the quiet nowhereness of Washington State that epitomizes bucolic charm (our fancy and cool way of saying a rustic, countryside vibe). An inlet connects the town to Bremerton, and Puget Sound connects it up to the Pacific Ocean. It’s a tiny place that packs a big punch.

Neighborhoods

Silverdale’s neighborhoods have greatly different appeals. Depending on whether you prefer a coastal setting or enjoy the woods and greenery of an inland location, you can choose an apartment that suits exactly your needs.

Bangor: This neighborhood is a bit more expensive than the rest but has wonderful single-family homes and apartments for rent. The vacancy rate is low, however, but if you’re lucky enough to find a coastal home, snatch it up right away! $$$$

Scandia: Much less than Bangor, homes here are still competitively priced. The area has quite a few apartment complexes and also some mobile homes for folks who like to be a little kinder to their wallets. $$$

Town Center: This is the place to look when scoping out decently priced apartment complexes. It’s a young neighborhood and has a beautiful waterfront component to it. $$$

Lobelia: This is a neighborhood of young commuters who work in nearby towns for the most part. It’s mostly residential with lots of homes dating back to the '70s. $$

December 2020 Silverdale Rent Report

Welcome to the December 2020 Silverdale Rent Report. Silverdale rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Silverdale rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Silverdale rents have declined 0.9% over the past month, and are down significantly by 2.1% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Silverdale stand at $1,469 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,722 for a two-bedroom.

    While rent decreases have been occurring in the city of Silverdale over the past year, cities in the rest of the state are seeing the opposite trend. Rents have risen in 6 of the largest 10 cities in Washington for which we have data. The state as a whole logged rent growth of -6.0% 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 $2,037; of the 10 largest cities in Washington that we have data for, Seattle, Bellevue, and Renton, where two-bedrooms go for $1,739, $2,037, and $1,849, respectively, are the three major cities in the state besides Silverdale to see rents fall year-over-year (-16.4%, -8.2%, and -0.3%).
    • Vancouver, Spokane, and Tacoma have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (4.9%, 4.3%, and 3.5%, respectively).

    • Silverdale's median two-bedroom rent of $1,722 is above the national average of $1,095. Nationwide, rents have fallen by 1.3% over the past year compared to the 2.1% decline in Silverdale.
    • While rents in Silverdale fell significantly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.9%) and Detroit (+2.9%).
    • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Silverdale than most large cities. For example, Detroit has a median 2BR rent of $885, where Silverdale is nearly twice that price.

    For more information check out our national report. You can also access our full data for cities and counties across the U.S.

    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 about the methodology on our blog.

    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.

    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.

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 about the methodology on our blog.

      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.

      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.
