Middletown Apartments

Located in the middle of Connecticut, in the middle of dozens of lakes, in the middle of a handful of rivers and streams, and in the middle of suburban life, this city is the Malcolm In The Middle of Connecticut suburbs: unbelievably brilliant, yet underappreciated and overlooked. We're already dangerously close to limit for the word "middle" in this here apartment guide, so let's get right down to it.

Located in the middle of Connecticut, in the middle of dozens of lakes, in the middle of a handful of rivers and streams, and in the middle of suburban life, this city is the Malcolm In The Middle of Connecticut suburbs: unbelievably brilliant, yet underappreciated and overlooked. We're already dangerously close to limit for the word "middle" in this here apartment guide, so let's get right down to it.

Neighborhoods

Central: Main Street and Route 66 form the central triangle that encompasses Middletown's three most popular attractions: historic downtown, Wadsworth Falls State Park, and the prestigious Wesleyan University. The neighborhoods around downtown have a variety of rental types, and the number of places with great river views make it very tempting for both city slickers and nature lovers alike. There are new townhouses and condo rentals, high-rise apartments, renovated multi-family houses, historic homes converted into duplexes and fourplexes, as well as a few old fashioned single-family home rentals.

Wherever you end up renting, you will be surrounded by culture, education, breathtaking natural beauty, and historic architecture. The university brings neighbors together with community collaborations, such as open jam sessions, open mic nights for writers and poets, as well as other programs.

The Coginchaug River, which stretches over to the western edge of central Middletown, is just one of the natural formations that’ll gladly take your breath away, especially the Wadsworth Falls State Park. Seriously, try to remember how to breathe whenever you see the stunning Big Falls, the Little Falls, and the fresh water-swimming hole that are especially fun in the summer and simply beautiful when they freeze over in the winter.

Northwest: On the eastern border of this area, you have the Mattabesett River, which eventually flows into the Connecticut River. On the western border is a mountainous ridge traversed by hiking trails that weave around Lamentation Mountain, Silver Lake, Guiffrida Park, and the Hunter Memorial Golf Course. And, in between is a picture-perfect snapshot of small town, suburban living. Most of the winding, circling, cul-de-sac streets are all owner-occupied, making for great neighborhoods.

There is also a small neighborhood known as West Lake that is just for you. It is clustered living at its finest, with very nice apartments, green common areas, and access to some great bike trails running between shopping areas, rivers, and downtown. It is a very dynamic and peculiar lifestyle, where suburban views meet urban living, and where a fun-loving apartment dweller can reside among house dwellers.

Southeast: Do you enjoy the quiet intimacy of a secret swimming hole? How about the loud, yet infectious laughter of neighbors having an awesome day on the lake? Or, for the surrealist-thrill-seekers, how about mountain biking to the top of Indian Hill as the sun rises over the Connecticut River? Well, if any of these sounds like your cup of tea, then this is the area for you.

In the tree-covered southeast side of town, miles of hiking trails, creeks, ponds, lakes, and the Connecticut River make up the city's most expansive year-round playground. This area is also home to two hospitals and Middlesex Community College, making the commutes times fairly low. There are some affordable apartments here. However, you can also find some amazing duplexes renovated from historic homes that sit on large, open plots of land or fork over the big bucks for aluxurious Tudor rental home surrounded by woods and walking trails, and miles away from noisy urban areas.

September 2020 Middletown Rent Report

Welcome to the September 2020 Middletown Rent Report. Middletown rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Middletown rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

Middletown rents increased moderately over the past month

Middletown rents have increased 0.3% over the past month, and have increased moderately by 3.2% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Middletown stand at $1,034 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,295 for a two-bedroom. This is the sixth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in February. Middletown's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 0.5%, as well as the national average of 0.3%.

    Rents falling across cities in Connecticut

    While rent prices have increased in Middletown over the past year, other cities across the state are seeing the opposite trend. Rents have fallen in 1 of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Connecticut. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 0.5% 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 $1,942; of the 10 largest Connecticut cities that we have data for, 6 have seen rents fall year-over-year, with Meriden experiencing the fastest decline (-3.4%).
    • Middletown, Danbury, and New Britain have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (3.2%, 1.9%, and 1.3%, respectively).

    Middletown rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

    As rents have increased moderately in Middletown, other large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Middletown is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

    • Middletown's median two-bedroom rent of $1,295 is above the national average of $1,195. Nationwide, rents have held steady over the past year.
    • While Middletown's rents rose moderately over the past year, some cities nationwide saw increases as well, including Phoenix (+1.7%) and Detroit (+0.8%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Middletown than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $2,956, which is more than twice the price in Middletown.

    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.
