2006 Rental Housing Complex Analysis

The number of rental housing units in Fairfax County declined by 1.76 percent in the past year, according to the county’s 2006 Rental Housing Complex Analysis. As of January 2006 there were 62,156 rental units. According to the report:

  • The decrease from January 2005 to January 2006 of 1,113 units was the result of conversion of rental apartment complexes to condominiums and fewer new rental apartments being built. A total of 2,594 units were converted to condominiums during the past year.
  • The vacancy rate for all rental complexes providing data is 6 percent, a decrease of 0.8 percentage points from the January 2005 vacancy rate of 6.8 percent.
  • The average monthly rent in the county for complexes without subsidies was $1,247 in January 2006. This is higher than that reported in January 2005, but in two planning districts, Baileys and Rose Hill, the average rent decreased. The average monthly rent for units in subsidized rental housing complexes was $1,001 in January 2006.

The rental housing analysis supplies data as of January 2006 on the number of rental units, vacancy rates and monthly rental costs of all Fairfax County rental housing complexes containing five or more units. No subsidized complexes are included in the calculation of rental costs. Housing units that are leased to renters by individual owners are not included in this report.

The report summarizes data for the county as a whole and for each supervisory and planning district. Data is also summarized by age of complex, type of structure and type of unit where appropriate. The total inventory of units includes all of the complexes included in the analysis. The number of rental units for the towns of Herndon and Vienna are included in their respective county supervisory districts.

Additional copies of the Department of Systems Management for Human Services 2006 Rental Housing Complex tables are available through the maps and publications sales department at the Fairfax County Government Center. The report also is available on the Fairfax County Web site as a PDF file at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/demogrph/housebut.htm.
