About Spokane Valley

Okay, so even though they share a name, Spokane and Spokane Valley are very different places. In fact, the original Valley settlement predates the larger and more well-known Spokane by several years. Valley people have always maintained an independence from the larger city, even during the suburban flight of the 1950s that transformed the area into a city by its own rights. Despite this, Spokane Valley remained unincorporated until 2003.

So yes, Spokane Valley, with its large amounts of new development and tract houses, does feel considerably more suburban than its larger neighbors, Spokane and Coeur d'Alene. However, recent development has created a push for a more urban, or community-oriented, city. For instance, the recently developed Mirabeau Park is a great green space with an adjacent community center.

The suburban feel of Spokane Valley does, however, manifest itself in area shopping. Most of the shopping is centered around the Spokane Valley Mall, which is located in the eastern portion of town. This highly-concentrated commercial area is where people from town and the city of Spokane proper come to do their shopping or enjoy a night out at one of the restaurants or the mall's movie theater.

Spokane Valley Industry

Once populated by apple orchards and farms, Spokane Valley is now an industrial center that employs thousands of residents at its paper and cement mills. If you think an industrial town makes for one rotten apple in the bunch, you're wrong.

Newer development, completed mostly in the 1970s, has provided the city with a lot of highly desirable residential space and cute neighborhoods. Additional new developments of apartment and condo complexes completed in the last couple of decades have been made to accommodate the large influx flocking to the Spokane Valley.

Neighborhoods

Much like its larger neighbor Spokane, the Valley area is fairly mixed throughout most of its neighborhoods. Types of rentals and rental prices don't vary too greatly in the town proper. Instead, rental rates are based predominately on the quality and type of the rental. For instance, a newer luxury rental in a complex with onsite amenities will cost more than a basic apartment located in the same area.

The majority of Spokane Valley is laid out along Interstate 90 which runs east-west through town and connects the city to both Spokane and Coeur d'Alene. Sprague Avenue is the main thoroughfare, and also runs east-west through the city of Spokane into Spokane Valley. Off this main thoroughfare lie many developments and apartment complexes.

South The neighborhoods south of the downtown, especially south of East 16th Avenue have newer homes. You will enjoy this convenient neighborhood.

North The northern reaches of Spokane Valley have their perks as well. The closer you get to Broadway, the less the neighborhoods seem like lots composed of cookie cutter tract homes. Additionally, several new buildings around the Spokane Valley Mall offer great rentals, as there are more amenities, and you'll be located closer to entertainment.

Regardless of where you settle, you should be able to find an affordable and attractive two bedroom in Spokane Valley for between $600-800.

Rental Tips

When in the suburbs, do as the suburbanites do! Unlike nearby Spokane, the sprawl of the Valley means that you'll have a lot more options--and space!--when it comes to rental homes. In general, Spokane Valley single-family rental homes tend to be newer in construction, better maintained, larger and have bigger yards.

If space isn't a concern and you like the amenities of large apartment buildings, be sure to visit several complexes before committing. Because of all the recent development, most apartment complexes and condos will offer special deals, including first month and credit check waivers, or move-in bonuses. Not all of these complexes will be right for you, however, so don't fall for a quick and cheap apartment, when you may be able to find a better deal long-term.

Apartment rentals in town can generally be found easily without the aid of a real estate agent. Check on online apartment search engines, or use the classifieds of the local newspaper, The Spokesman. Expect to pay between $25-50 as an application fee and about one month's rent as the deposit. One-year leases are generally the most commonly found for all Spokane Valley rental properties.

Transportation

Because Spokane Valley is located right on Interstate 90, commuting into and out of the city at any time shouldn't be too much of a hassle. Yes, traffic may be heavier during the prime of rush hour commute, but it won't be bumper-to-bumper anywhere along your journey into either Spokane or Coeur d'Alene.

The Spokane Valley is also serviced by the Spokane Transit Authority, which operates several fixed route bus lines around town and into the city of Spokane. The Village Transit Center, located downtown on the corner of East 4th Avenue and University Road is where all the bus lines connect, making it easier to get to different parts of town.

Your life (and awesome) apartment in scenic Spokane await. Happy hunting!

Instead, rental rates are based predominately on the quality and type of the rental. For instance, a newer luxury rental in a complex with onsite amenities will cost more than a basic apartment located in the same area.

The majority of Spokane Valley is laid out along Interstate 90 which runs east-west through town and connects the city to both Spokane and Coeur d'Alene. Sprague Avenue is the main thoroughfare, and also runs east-west through the city of Spokane into Spokane Valley. Off this main thoroughfare lie many developments and apartment complexes.

South The neighborhoods south of the downtown, especially south of East 16th Avenue have newer homes. You will enjoy this convenient neighborhood.

North The northern reaches of Spokane Valley have their perks as well. The closer you get to Broadway, the less the neighborhoods seem like lots composed of cookie cutter tract homes. Additionally, several new buildings around the Spokane Valley Mall offer great rentals, as there are more amenities, and you'll be located closer to entertainment.

Regardless of where you settle, you should be able to find an affordable and attractive two bedroom in Spokane Valley for between $600-800.

Rental Tips

When in the suburbs, do as the suburbanites do! Unlike nearby Spokane, the sprawl of the Valley means that you'll have a lot more options--and space!--when it comes to rental homes. In general, Spokane Valley single-family rental homes tend to be newer in construction, better maintained, larger and have bigger yards.

If space isn't a concern and you like the amenities of large apartment buildings, be sure to visit several complexes before committing. Because of all the recent development, most apartment complexes and condos will offer special deals, including first month and credit check waivers, or move-in bonuses. Not all of these complexes will be right for you, however, so don't fall for a quick and cheap apartment, when you may be able to find a better deal long-term.

Apartment rentals in town can generally be found easily without the aid of a real estate agent. Check on online apartment search engines, or use the classifieds of the local newspaper, The Spokesman. Expect to pay between $25-50 as an application fee and about one month's rent as the deposit. One-year leases are generally the most commonly found for all Spokane Valley rental properties.

Transportation

Because Spokane Valley is located right on Interstate 90, commuting into and out of the city at any time shouldn't be too much of a hassle. Yes, traffic may be heavier during the prime of rush hour commute, but it won't be bumper-to-bumper anywhere along your journey into either Spokane or Coeur d'Alene.

The Spokane Valley is also serviced by the Spokane Transit Authority, which operates several fixed route bus lines around town and into the city of Spokane. The Village Transit Center, located downtown on the corner of East 4th Avenue and University Road is where all the bus lines connect, making it easier to get to different parts of town.

Your life (and awesome) apartment in scenic Spokane await. Happy hunting!

December 2020 Spokane Valley Rent Report

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

Spokane Valley rents increase sharply over the past month

Spokane Valley rents have increased 0.6% over the past month, and are up sharply by 11.2% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Spokane Valley stand at $929 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,081 for a two-bedroom. This is the ninth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in February. Spokane Valley's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of -6.0%, as well as the national average of -1.3%.

    Rents rising across cities in Washington

    Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Spokane Valley, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Washington, 7 of them have seen prices rise. 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 to see rents fall year-over-year (-16.4%, -8.2%, and -0.3%).
    • Spokane Valley, Vancouver, and Spokane have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (11.2%, 4.9%, and 4.3%, respectively).

    Spokane Valley rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

    • Spokane Valley's median two-bedroom rent of $1,081 is slightly below the national average of $1,095. Nationwide, rents have fallen by 1.3% over the past year compared to the 11.2% rise in Spokane Valley.
    • While Spokane Valley's rents rose sharply over the past year, some cities nationwide saw increases as well, including Phoenix (+3.9%) and Detroit (+2.9%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Spokane Valley than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $2,377, which is more than twice the price in Spokane Valley.

    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.
