Not so Rusty in Muncie

Greetings, Hoosiers, and welcome to your Muncie, Indiana apartment hunting headquarters! Situated in central Indiana 60 miles northeast of Indianapolis, Muncie is a manufacturing city of 70,000 that offers up quite a bit more than the typical sights. It’s a growing community and, best of all, features apartments ranging from college student crash pads to spacious luxury units that the entire family can enjoy. Are you ready to join the more than 120,000 proud peeps who call the Muncie metro area home? Then come along with us, because the apartment of your dreams is just a few clicks away…

Midwestern Manners still Prevail

One of the first questions people always ask when moving to a new city is, “What part of town should I live in?” There’s not a whole lot of distinction between the various neighborhoods in Muncie, but if you’re one of the approximately 22,000 Ball State students living here, you’re probably better off targeting one of the campus area complexes in the northwestern sector.

Most of the city’s economic and housing growth has occurred in the northwest in recent years while the more well-established neighborhoods are mostly located in the formerly industrialized eastern and southern districts. We recommend you spend plenty of time in a neighborhood to make sure you’re comfortable with it before pursuing a lease.

Hoosiers get Footloose

The historic downtown arts and culture district in Muncie is dotted with quality art galleries, museums, eateries, watering holes, and eclectic shopping hotspots. Other attractions include a performing arts theater and symphony orchestra, while outdoors enthusiasts can enjoy a plethora of campgrounds, an arboretum (nothing sounds cooler than an arboretum), botanical gardens, and numerous parks, gardens, and trails. Ball State University football games are popular events for students and diehard locals alike, while the famed Indianapolis Speedway (don’t forget your Dale, Jr. t-shirt and mesh hat!) and Colts and Pacers stadiums are located only about an hour away.

Pounding the Proverbial Pavement

One of the most attractive aspects of living in Muncie is its above-average public transportation system. The MITS city buses run 15 routes Monday through Saturday and hit up the majority of the city’s business districts, so it’s quite possible for apartment dwellers living within walking distance of a MITS stop to rely almost entirely on public transit to get around. Still, having your own set of wheels remains the most convenient way to work, shop, dine, socialize, and just plain live conveniently. Fortunately, traffic is minimal, parking spots are a dime a dozen, and the average commute to work takes less than 20 minutes. Because so many apartments are located within easy walking distance of BSU, students can easily survive in Muncie without a car of their own.

New Tricks for Old Apartments

A few things you should know before embarking on your apartment hunting adventures in Muncie:

  • Scoring an apartment in Muncie isn’t as difficult as, say, passing that advanced trig class you’ve been struggling with all semester. Waiting lists are rare but occupancy rates do spike drastically just before the fall semester and drop off at the end of the academic year in early June. If you’re targeting a campus area pad, begin your hunt no later than March to make sure you have the pick of the litter.

  • Most leases in Muncie are for a full year and most begin in August, although a limited number of short-term and corporate leasing options are available as well. Because the university and the bulk of the city’s employment opportunities are located in the northwest quadrant, your best bet might be to target one of the numerous rentals in that area.

  • Muncie is one of the Midwest’s most affordable cities; you couldn’t spend more than $1000 on an apartment if you tried. Studios and modest 1BR units near campus are readily available in the $500 range, while even super-spacious, 3BR luxury rentals can be found in abundance for less than $800. Amenities at various properties run the gamut from minimal to lavish, so do some preliminary research about a property’s perks before scheduling a walkthrough.

  • Obviously, many of the apartments surrounding BSU are inhabited largely by students. This is great for co-eds but can be a bit aggravating for those who have already matriculated and, for some strange reason, have a problem with things like raucous, all-night parties preventing their pre-work beauty rest (how unreasonable!). If you’re unsure about an apartment complex’s tenants, just call in advance and ask a leasing agent what sort of, ahem, clientele live there.

  • Pet polices can be vastly different from complex to complex. Some landlords allow cats but not dogs, others frown at the idea of a mere goldfish living with you, while others could probably care less if a 600 pound Bengal tiger shares your living space. Again, do some preliminary research and read your lease carefully to make sure you’re comfortable with a landlord’s pet policies and other rules.

  • Because apartments turn over so frequently in Muncie, landlords sometimes end up overlooking minor or even major blemishes in your new humble abode. Take your move-in checklist seriously and make note of even the most minor flaws, or else you risk losing your security deposit over a preexisting imperfection.

And now it’s time to scour the listings and hit the streets in search of your dream dwellings. Best of luck and welcome to Muncie!

December 2018 Muncie Rent Report

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

Muncie rents held steady over the past month

Muncie rents have increased 0.1% over the past month, but are down moderately by 0.8% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Muncie stand at $550 for a one-bedroom apartment and $720 for a two-bedroom. Muncie's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.0%, as well as the national average of 1.3%.

Rents rising across cities in Indiana

While rent decreases have been occurring in the city of Muncie over the past year, cities in the rest of the state are seeing the opposite trend. Rents have risen in 8 of the largest 10 cities in Indiana for which we have data. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 1.0% 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, Carmel is the most expensive of all Indiana's major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,200; of the 10 largest cities in the state that we have data for, Evansville, where a two-bedroom goes for $860, is the only other major city besides Muncie to see rents fall year-over-year (-0.4%).
  • Noblesville, Carmel, and Fort Wayne have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (7.1%, 1.6%, and 1.2%, respectively).

Muncie rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have fallen moderately in Muncie, many large cities nationwide have seen prices increase, in some cases substantially. Muncie is also more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Muncie's median two-bedroom rent of $720 is below the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.3% over the past year compared to the 0.8% decline in Muncie.
  • While rents in Muncie fell moderately over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+3.2%), New York (+2.3%), and Denver (+1.9%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Muncie than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,100, which is more than four times the price in Muncie.

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.
