Manhattan, Kansas

Referred to as the “Little Apple,” for reasons that should be abundantly obvious by the next word, Manhattan, Kansas is the fourth largest city in the state. It’s also home to Kansas State University and a few miles from a Fort Riley, a US Army base. Located in the Flint Hills area of northeast Kansas, Manhattan is a bit small in terms of city space. But what the city lacks in space it makes up for with a diverse population and great vibe. http://www.apartmentlist.com/cms/snippets/location/3107/reviewcityguides

EMAW – Go Wildcats!

KSU drives much of the economy and culture around Manhattan, mainly due to all the attention its sports programs. That’s not to say that the population is solely college-aged students, though. With a population of about 50,000 plus, Manhattan has its fair share of college students, but military personnel, families and people of all ages reside here, as well. In other words, there is nothing that this town can’t offer, no matter the age (except hills, or lack of tornadoes). Whether you shop and dine in Aggieville (not to be confused with Texas A&M – Boo!), stroll through the historic Downtown, or take in some KSU sports, you'll never have a dull moment in Manhattan.

Toto, we're not in New York anymore

Choosing a neighborhood in Manhattan is all about your interests and lifestyle. Outdoorsy types should look to Northwest Manhattan, closer to Fort Riley and the outdoor areas, such as Westchester Park. This end of town is quieter and very family-friendly, for the concerned parents out there. The homes around here are often newly built and larger while apartments are typically set back on acres or preserves. The larger real estate that these apartments occupy means rentals feature tennis courts, pools and fireplaces for those cold winters. Snazzy, eh?

What's the noise level around here? Incredibly loud? Great, I'll take it.

Students in Manhattan will no doubt prefer to live in the thick of things right near Aggieville and KSU. Located just east of the city center, this end of town is full of apartments bursting with amenities that college students die for (tanning beds, pools, fitness centers, etc.) The proximity to highways, bars, dining, shopping and the downtown area doesn’t hurt, either.

Young professionals and some retirees who’ve had it with lawn maintenance should check out life in the heart of the city. Here, you’ll find upscale apartments and luxurious condominium complexes that cater to the finer things in life. The homes here tend to be older, even historic. Living here also puts residents within walking distance to shops, art museums, medical centers and some great schools.

The “Little Apple” is a city that’s young at heart (No seriously, the median age is 24) but rich beyond its years. With a four-season climate (locals advise you to rent where there is both a fireplace and a strong A/C unit), a passion for college sports and a setting so picturesque you won’t think you’re in Kansas anymore, Manhattan is the perfect city to start your life. Here’s to finding the perfect apartment for you!

Rent Report
Manhattan

September 2020 Manhattan Rent Report

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

Manhattan rents declined over the past month

Manhattan rents have declined 0.1% over the past month, and are down slightly by 0.3% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Manhattan stand at $559 for a one-bedroom apartment and $740 for a two-bedroom. Manhattan's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.4%, as well as the national average of 0.3%.

    Rents rising across cities in Kansas

    While rent decreases have been occurring in the city of Manhattan over the past year, cities in the rest of the state are seeing the opposite trend. Rents have risen in 9 of the largest 10 cities in Kansas for which we have data. The state as a whole logged rent growth of 1.4% 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, Leawood is the most expensive of all Kansas' major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,507; of the 10 largest Kansas cities that we have data for, 9 have seen rents rise year-over-year, with Leawood experiencing the fastest growth (+7.5%).
    • Lenexa, Topeka, and Shawnee have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (3.0%, 2.2%, and 2.2%, respectively).

    Manhattan rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

    • Manhattan's median two-bedroom rent of $740 is below the national average of $1,195. Nationwide, rents have held steady over the past year.
    • While rents in Manhattan fell slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+1.7%) and Detroit (+0.8%).
    • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Manhattan than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $2,956, which is nearly four times the price in Manhattan.

    For more information check out our national report. You can also access our full data for cities and counties across the U.S. at this link.

    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.

Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the state.

      • Looking throughout the state, Leawood is the most expensive of all Kansas' major cities, with a median two-bedroom rent of $1,507; of the 10 largest Kansas cities that we have data for, 9 have seen rents rise year-over-year, with Leawood experiencing the fastest growth (+7.5%).
      • Lenexa, Topeka, and Shawnee have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (3.0%, 2.2%, and 2.2%, respectively).

      Manhattan rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

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

      • Manhattan's median two-bedroom rent of $740 is below the national average of $1,195. Nationwide, rents have held steady over the past year.
      • While rents in Manhattan fell slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw increases, including Phoenix (+1.7%) and Detroit (+0.8%).
      • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Manhattan than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $2,956, which is nearly four times the price in Manhattan.

      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.
