City Guide
Montgomery
How hard will it be to score my dream home … er, apartment … in Montgomery?

Easy as pie. Montgomery has no shortage of available living spaces (twenty-five percent of residential buildings are small apartments or high rises), so don’t rush into an apartment unless you’re sure it’s right for you. The turnover rate for apartments is high, and new units are constantly opening up.

During the mid to late summer months, occupancy rates tend to spike so don’t hesitate too long to begin your search if you’re relocating in the heart of summer. Even then, though, renters rarely end up on waiting lists.

When filling out a renter’s application, you’ll need the basics, including identification, proof of income, and a respectable renting history. Month-to-month leases are available at many locations after the renter has completed an initial six-month or one-year lease.

So which part of Montgomery is best for me?

The answer to that question depends on a number of factors, including how much you can afford to spend, whether you prefer a rural, suburban, or urban-based domicile, and what your transportation situation is. Generally speaking, the expensive neighborhoods lie in the central and eastern sections of the city, while the western and southwestern districts offer apartment dwellers lower-rent options. East Montgomery is the fastest growing part of the Capital of the South, but most of the residences on the east side are single-family homes rather than rental properties.

What are some things I should know before taking the Montgomery plunge?
  • Get your motor runnin’ … No matter which of Montgomery’s 50 neighborhoods you choose to live in, you’ll need to drive to get from points A to B. With wide lanes and ample parking in most districts, Montgomery is a driver-friendly city. The good news for non-vehicle owners is that public transportation is generally reliable and inexpensive (a one-way city bus ride only costs a buck and 35 bucks will get you a monthly pass).

And always remember: if you have questions about life in Montgomery, don’t hesitate to ask the locals. The folks in the Capital of the South love, love, love to chat it up, and they won’t hesitate to point you in the right direction. Happy hunting!

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.
