City Guide
Olathe
What's life like in Olathe, anyway?

Though located only 20-odd miles from downtown Kansas City, MO, Olathe is far enough away to provide residents with a sense of tranquility that the bustling big city can’t offer.

One of Olathe’s biggest attractions, Cedar Lake, is a popular hotspot for boaters, fishers, and picnickers, equipped with large and small picnic shelters, a playground and a pair of beach volley ball courts. Olathe is also home to a number of suburban venues like big-screen movie theaters and chain restaurants, so don’t forget to bring along those Outback Steakhouse coupons you almost forgot you had.

How about the cost of living?

The cost of living remains low. Most 1BR or 2BR rental properties won’t cost you more than $700-$800/month.

How’s apartment life in Olathe?

Floor plans and décor differ from unit to unit obviously, but the typical Olathe 1-2BR pad is between 700-1000 square feet and includes basic amenities like tenant laundry facilities, complimentary parking, and fitness and business centers.

Because only 27 percent of residents rent, apartments aren’t hard to come by and waiting lists are completely unheard-of. You can afford to be choosy in Olathe, but we also recommend that, if possible, you open up your pocketbooks a teensy bit. $50 a month can be the difference between a generic box unit and a modernized lakeside pad replete with vaulted ceilings, fireplace, covered parking, and a private jogging/biking path. A little money really does go a long way in Olathe, especially when it comes to scoring your dream dwellings.

Also, most apartment managers require a good-faith deposit of the first month’s rent before you can move in. Remember that you’ll need to equip yourself with banking info and proof of income when submitting a leaser’s application.

Which part of Olathe is best for me?

The architecture and ambiance don’t differ greatly from ‘hood to ‘hood, as every corner of Olathe exudes a suburban vibe. You’re not likely to notice much of an atmospheric shift whether you live in the De Soto neighborhood, the Lackmans area, or anywhere else. The city continues to expand southward at a hyperactive speed, so don’t be surprised if some flashy new rentals start popping up down south to keep pace with the housing boom.

Anything else I should know?

Nope. You’re all set, so put those wheels to rest and get huntin’. Best of luck in the search for your new Olathe abode, and see you in Kansas!

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.
