As of April 2015, prices for a four-bedroom apartment or house in Silicon Valley range from around $3,500 to over $10,000 a month. This variation mainly results from the desirability of certain locations, but property facilities and improvements also affect the rental price.
Listings for four-bedroom homes in and around Silicon Valley vary significantly in price. Knowing which area the renter wants to live in and how long a commute is acceptable is key to finding a more accurate estimate of costs. Commuter areas such as Morgan Hill, which are outside the main Silicon Valley area, cost less than one-third as much as properties in the heart of the region.
