Spokane-Do!

Waaaay over on the eastern edge of Washington, Spokane is the largest non-Seattle city in the state, smallest city ever to host a World’s Fair, and the first place to celebrate Father’s Day. And it must smell terrific. Why else would they call it The Lilac City? So what do you need to know to move in?

And it must smell terrific. Why else would they call it The Lilac City? So what do you need to know to move in?

The Basics

It’s a good time to rent in Spokane. You might hear from an individual landlord that it’s best to jump on a deal in his or her part of town, but if you pull back and look at the city as a whole, you’ve got a wide range of choices from single family home rentals, duplexes, multi-unit complexes, and Victorian flats. One year leases are typical and you can expect to be asked for first month’s rent up front in addition to a deposit. Things are sluggish in the rental market, though, so don’t be shy about negotiating terms regarding lease length, utilities, or pet deposits.

Size Matters

If you’ve ever wanted to live large, this might be the time to start. Vacancy rates in Spokane are highest in units with three or more bedrooms and, frankly, it’s getting to the point where some landlords not only want, but need to move people in. Play your cards right, you might get a three bed for just a whisper more than a two.

North and Northwest

Spokane is divided into north and south by the Spokane River. The North is almost entirely residential to one degree or another. Chances are good you’ll find your new neighborhood up here, especially if you’re on any kind of budget. Here are some tips for this half of town.

Garland is a Rose

Locals and visitors alike often complain that the North side of Spokane is not particularly walkable. Garland is an exception, and only seems to be gaining momentum as a hub for pubs, entertainment, food, and people watching. You’ll pay 10% more than elsewhere on the north side to live here, but may find it worth the cost.

Rent Report
Spokane

September 2020 Spokane Rent Report

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

Spokane rents increased slightly over the past month

Spokane rents have increased 0.2% over the past month, and are up marginally by 0.5% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Spokane stand at $687 for a one-bedroom apartment and $910 for a two-bedroom. This is the eighth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in December of last year. Spokane's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of -0.6%, as well as the national average of 0.3%.

    Rents rising across cities in Washington

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Spokane, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Washington, 6 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of -0.6% 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 $2,368; of the 10 largest Washington cities that we have data for, 4 have seen rents fall year-over-year, with Bellevue experiencing the fastest decline (-2.3%).
    • Kent, Everett, and Renton have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (1.8%, 1.1%, and 0.7%, respectively).

    Spokane rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

    • Spokane's median two-bedroom rent of $910 is below the national average of $1,195. Nationwide, rents have held steady over the past year.
    • While Spokane's rents rose over the past year, some cities nationwide saw increases as well, including Phoenix (+1.7%) and Detroit (+0.8%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Spokane than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $2,956, which is more than three times the price in Spokane.

    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.

      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.

      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.

      • The highest-rated categories for Spokane were public transit and jobs and career opportunities, which both received B+ scores.
      • The areas of concern to Spokane renters are social life (F), pet-friendliness (D), weather (D), commute time (D) and safety and low crime (D).
      • Spokane earned similar scores compared to other cities in Washington like Tacoma (C+) and Vancouver (D), but earned lower marks than Seattle (B+), Bellevue (A+) and Renton (A+).
      • Spokane did relatively poorly compared to cities nationwide, including Dallas (B), Chicago (B-) and Charlotte (A-).
      • 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.
