Moving to Plainfield

Anyone moving to Plainfield, IN should consider buying a car if they don't already own one. Buses and cabs take away from that small-town feel after all. Indianapolis, where many Plainfield residents work, is accessible by State Route 40 or Interstate 70. One bus route runs that way too.

Like the limited transportation options, there are limited places for rent in Plainfield because of its relatively small size compared to the monstrosity of Marion County next door. Opt for a premier apartment with a pool, fitness center, and all the amenities, and it'll cost you around $900 for a two-bedroom. On the lower end of the price spectrum, some two-bedroom apartments run around $695. Corporate-owned complexes require the usual: credit checks, proof of employment, and several hundred references. So start planning ahead.

Plainfield Neighborhoods

Neighborhoods in Plainfield are broken down by housing developments with swanky names like Diamond Cove and Paddock Most of these neighborhoods consist of single-family homes. You can occasionally find a house to rent. Here are a couple of the major neighborhoods.

Metropolis: You may not be living in one, but Metropolis is home to Plainfield's most luxurious apartment community, right by the Metropolis Mall

Stafford: The Stafford Road area is budget friendly and close to a cluster of office buildings. You cant beat the convenience of that commute!

Plainfield Living

Plainfield people are generally active, soaking in the high-quality, small-town life, keeping busy with a range of activities. Even though its not huge, there are plenty of interesting ways to occupy yourself, with more than 50 restaurants to choose from, 480 acres of parkland, and more than 20 miles of hiking and biking trails. Two hospitals are also in town, providing quality medical care. And then theres that water park. Reputed to be located in a former corn field, Splash Island is home to 4.3 acres of water slides, an interactive play area, waterfalls, and of course, a water basketball court. This is Indiana after all.

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.


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.
