City Guide
New Britain
What’s so special about New Britain, anyway?

Well, for one thing, the basketball maneuver of dribbling was invented in New Britain in the late 19th century. Before then, there were a lot of “traveling” calls in B-ball games, we suppose. Is that special enough for you? Yes, it is.

What about availability? Is there a good chance I’ll get stuck on a waiting list?

Probably not. Waiting lists are rare no matter what time of year you begin your apartment hunt. Leasers outnumber homeowners by about 12 percent in New Britain, and many complexes – which are readily available – offer more than 1000 square feet of living space (which is extremely rare for East Coast rentals) and feature amenities like private ponds, swimming pools, and fitness centers.

Any other apartment hunting advice?

Arm yourself with the basics, including proof of income, banking info, identification, and a list of previous residences. If you have any dark skeletons in your renting history, you might need a co-signer to score your New Britain dream pad. Likewise, those without a job or a rental history will need a reputable co-signer to score a lease.

Also, if you’re new to the Eastern Seaboard, you should know that most New England cities, including New Britain, are characterized by well-established (pre-1970) and historic (pre-1940) neighborhoods. Hopefully, in other words, you appreciate an apartment with plenty of old-school character (less than one percent of all housing units in New Britain were built post-1995). Because older units often have some issues that newer ones don’t, be especially studious when completing your move-in checklist. Make sure the heating and cooling units function efficiently, the pipes, sinks, shower heads, and toilets don’t drip, run, or leak, and your appliances, light switches, and ceiling fans are up to par. Also, mark down even the most minor blemishes on your move-in checklist, as landlords will only refund your security deposit if you play nice with your new humble abode.

Is there anything to do for fun in New Britain?

New Britain’s tree-lined avenues are dotted with art, history, museums, theaters, performance art venues, golf courses, and 1200 acres of parks, helping make New Britain an attractive living locale. For night owls, meanwhile, bars, bars, and a few more bars can be found, while most of the outlying ‘burbs have dive bars at most corners as well.

Do I need my own set of wheels to bum around New Britain?

Not necessarily, but the easiest way to work, play, and just plain live conveniently is with your own car. The city bus system is extremely limited, so we definitely recommend bucking up for a gas guzzler of your own while living in New Britain.

One last thing: Which part of town should I live in?

To be sure whether or not a neighborhood is right for you, though, spend plenty of time there (during both day and night) to see if you’re comfortable with its ambiance.

So … can we get this show on the road and start scavenging for the perfect apartment, or what?

Absolutely. Happy hunting and best of luck!

December 2018 New Britain Rent Report

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

New Britain rents increased slightly over the past month

New Britain rents have increased 0.2% over the past month, and have increased marginally by 0.7% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in New Britain stand at $890 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,110 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in September. New Britain's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.6%, as well as the national average of 1.3%.

Rents rising across cities in Connecticut

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of New Britain, but across the entire state. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in Connecticut, 7 of them have seen prices rise. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 1.6% 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 $1,910; of the 10 largest cities in Connecticut that we have data for, Meriden, Hartford, and West Haven, where two-bedrooms go for $1,240, $1,090, and $1,400, respectively, are the three major cities in the state to see rents fall year-over-year (-1.5%, -0.3%, and -0.1%).
  • Norwalk, Middletown, and East Hartford have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (4.3%, 3.5%, and 3.1%, respectively).

New Britain rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

  • New Britain's median two-bedroom rent of $1,110 is below the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.3% over the past year compared to the 0.7% increase in New Britain.
  • While New Britain's rents rose marginally over the past year, the city of Seattle saw a decrease of 0.4%.
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in New Britain than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,100, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in New Britain.

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.
