Neighborhoods

Main Street/Center Street: The Main Street/Center Street area, smack dab in the center of the town, is one of the more historic areas, with only a few residences being built after 1970. This is a great area for affordable, character-filled apartments, as a majority of the area has either homes broken up into separate apartments, or small apartment buildings. It is also one of the more urban parts of Manchester, so if you don't want to drive everywhere it's a good place to have walking access to restaurants and shops.

Buckland Hills/Oakland: This area is filled with luxury communities. These communities are usually a separated area of 20 or more two- to three-floor apartment homes, often with attached garages. Enjoy amenities like fitness centers, swimming pools, clubhouses, and in-apartment washers and dryers. They have granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances, and central air and heat. This area is perfect for being close to the mall, the highway, and everything else you could possibly need.

Highland Park: Anticipate a long real estate process if you want to move to Highland Park, as there are very few home vacancies—it's such a desirable area of Manchester that all the beautiful single-family homes are taken up!

Bush Hill Road/Keeney Street: If you're in the market for a new construction home, one that you can possibly even customize as it's built, then check out the new communities being built west of Keeney Street. Although the houses are close together, you won't be able to find more beautiful homes for the price they are selling at. Don't wait, because the quicker you decide to buy here the more say you'll have in the construction! Just imagine the walk-in closet, granite countertops, and crown molding opportunities!

S. Main Street/I-384: If you go east of S. Main Street you will find a lovely, reasonable area to live in. A huge draw of this particular neighborhood is Case Mountain, with the widely used Carriage Path fire road that leads to the summit of Lookout Mountain and offers panoramic views of the area. Go fishing, ride a horse, or hike the trails and see nature's beauty on the weekends, while enjoying modest homes and kind neighbors. Also enjoy the golfing and other perks that Manchester Country Club, which straddles Main Street, has to offer.

November 2018 Manchester Rent Report

Welcome to the November 2018 Manchester Rent Report. Manchester rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Manchester rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Manchester rents increase sharply over the past month

Manchester rents have increased 0.8% over the past month, and are up sharply by 8.5% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Manchester stand at $1,220 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,530 for a two-bedroom. Manchester's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.3%, as well as the national average of 1.1%.

Rents rising across cities in Connecticut

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Manchester, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Connecticut, 8 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 1.3% 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, Stamford is the most expensive of all Connecticut's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,900; of the 10 largest cities in Connecticut that we have data for, Meriden and Hartford, where two-bedrooms go for $1,240 and $1,090, are the only two major cities in the state to see rents fall year-over-year (-1.1% and -0.1%).
  • Norwalk, East Hartford, and Waterbury have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (4.4%, 3.4%, and 3.0%, respectively).

Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Manchester

As rents have increased sharply in Manchester, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Compared to most large cities across the country, Manchester is less affordable for renters.

  • Manchester's median two-bedroom rent of $1,530 is above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.1% over the past year compared to the 8.5% rise in Manchester.
  • While Manchester's rents rose sharply over the past year, the city of Seattle saw a decrease of 1.3%.
  • Renters will generally find more expensive prices in Manchester than most large cities. For example, Detroit has a median 2BR rent of $890, where Manchester is more than one-and-a-half times that price.

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.
