City Guide
Huntsville
Are apartments readily available? What should I know before signing a lease?

Generally, yes, apartments are easy enough to find in Huntsville (renters make up 35 percent of the population), although availability differs from ‘hood to ‘hood. Certain neighborhoods (Meadow Mills, Meridianville, Chapman Heights) consist almost entirely of single-family, mortgaged homes, while residents of other areas (Northside Acres, Greenwycke Village) move so infrequently that rental units rarely become available.

The good news is, there’s a revolving door of tenants at many Huntsville apartment complexes. Waiting lists are nearly unheard of throughout much of the city, and most landlords offer both long-term and month-to-month leases.

When you’re ready to sign a lease, make sure you bring along the basics, including identification, rental history, proof of income, and banking info.

Also, don’t blow off the move-in checklist that most landlords in Huntsville ask leasers to fill out. Because the turnover rate at many properties is high, apartment managers don’t always have the chance to make sure every nook and cranny of your new pad is up to par. Make a note of any imperfection you notice (no matter how minor!), as you don’t want to lose your deposit over a blemish that was already there before you moved in.

So which neighborhood is right for me?

Harvest: The Harvest neighborhood in the city’s northeast quadrant is a popular pick. The area is walker-friendly, and serves up plenty of medium-sized, single family homes for rent in the $600-$700 range.

Jones Valley Estate: It’s mostly grandiose single family homes in this tranquil, scenic ‘hood. A few apartments and high rises are available as well. Homes are sometimes available for rent as well; just don’t plan to spend less than $3,000.

Whiteburg Estates: Apartments and condos generally go in the $700-$800 range and many units rank among the most spacious in Huntsville.

Willowbrook: Prices on lofts and apartments can be found in the $900-$1100 range.

West Huntsville: Apartment seekers with limited budgets can find a surplus of available apartments in West Huntsville. More than 20 percent of West Huntsville properties are vacant, and apartments can often be scored for less than 4 bills.

What about public transportation? And how’s the traffic situation?

What public transportation? And what traffic?

Huntsville is quite the anomaly in one regard: virtually all residents (97 percent) commute to work via car each morning, yet traffic is practically nonexistent. Parking is rarely a problem, either, and commuters average a meager 18-minute drive to work each morning.

Unfortunately, public transportation is simply impractical in Huntsville, where shopping centers, banks, restaurants, and offices are so spread out that your only viable option is the good ole’ gas guzzler. Many parts of town lack adequate sidewalks as well, so plan your running routes accordingly.

How’s the nightlife?

There are a few hotspots, live music joints, and theater/concert venues.

For those who prefer fun in the sun rather than madness under the moon, however, you won’t be disappointed. Huntsville boasts a variety of museums (U.S. Space and Rocket Center Museum, most notably), parks, rec centers, minor-league sports franchises, arts festivals, and golf courses.

Best of luck, and happy hunting in Huntsville!

December 2018 Huntsville Rent Report

Welcome to the December 2018 Huntsville Rent Report. Huntsville rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Huntsville rental market, including comparisons to similar cities nationwide.

Huntsville rents increased moderately over the past month

Huntsville rents have increased 0.3% over the past month, and have increased slightly by 1.8% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Huntsville stand at $650 for a one-bedroom apartment and $780 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in September. Huntsville's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.5%, as well as the national average of 1.3%.

Huntsville rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have increased slightly in Huntsville, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more quickly. Huntsville is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Huntsville's median two-bedroom rent of $780 is below the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.3% over the past year compared to the 1.8% increase in Huntsville.
  • While Huntsville's rents rose slightly over the past year, the city of Seattle saw a decrease of 0.4%.
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Huntsville than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,100, which is nearly four times the price in Huntsville.

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.
