A Peak at the Park

A few nuggets of info that will hopefully help make your migration to Overland Park silky-smooth:

“Pump it Up …” Everyone knows that you don’t show up in Kansas City without an appetite for world-class barbecue, and everyone should know that you don’t roll into Overland Park without your own set of wheels. Technically, public transportation does exist (the Johnson Country Transit system makes 13 stops in the area), but because the buildings in Overland Park are so spread out, you shouldn’t expect to be able to shop, bank, work, and play conveniently without a vehicle of your own. The demand for public transit is low, meanwhile, so don’t hold your breath waiting for an upgraded bus system.

‘Ain’t No Party Like an Applebee’s Party … Unless you’re confident you can pick up dates at America’s Favorite Neighborhood Grill & Bar, you’re likely to be disappointed by the “nightlife” (or lack thereof) in Overland Park. Best bet: Hightail it into downtown K.C. (about 10 miles away) and bar-hop around Westport, the Plaza, or the Power & Light District instead (Note: When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in K.C., drink Boulevard).

Overland Park boasts a petting zoo, botanical garden, two mega-malls, and plenty of museums, golf courses, bike trails, and recurring festivals. Still not convinced? At the 96-acre Overland Park Soccer Complex, all 12 fields are frequently occupied, and organizers often have to book clinics and camps 18 months in advance to secure a field.

“Toto, I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore …” Never fear, Kansas commuter: you won’t encounter any tedious toll booths when crossing state lines, and the journey to K.C.-MO rarely takes longer than a half hour.

Tips for Tenants

Before packing up shop and heading out to the outskirts of BBQ heaven, there are a few things we think you should know about leasing an apartment in Overland Park:

• Leasers pay an average of $1000/month.

• The demand for apartments frequently outweighs the supply, and units aren’t always available at prospective tenants’ first choices. Most landlords will require leasers put in a formal bid/application 60 days before their move-in date, so don’t stroll into town expecting to find a place right away. And if you come across a rental property that you can’t live without, don’t mull it over for too long, because it might not be available for long.

• What, then, can you expect from an Overland Park apartment if and when you finally find one? Well, you can expect all the comforts your home-owning brethren enjoy, including modern kitchens, ample living space (900-plus square feet for a typical 2 BR unit), and community gym, pool, and rec areas. Especially in the southern and central parts of the city, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything other than luxury rentals.

• Finally, 6 and 12-month leases are available at most properties, but you’ll have to fork over some extra dough ($25 to $50 typically) for the 6-month varieties. Month-to-month leases are practically nonexistent, as are studio units.

Picking the Right Stomping Grounds

Generally speaking, the northern sections of town like City Center and Antioch serve up apartments in the $600-$700 range, while units in the more southern ‘hoods like Morse and the Nieman District go for closer to $1200. Most of Overland Park’s 40-odd ‘hoods have a similar ambiance, though, so don’t expect to notice many radical differences in the different parts of town while apartment hunting. New houses are constantly springing up all over Overland Park, meanwhile, and many of them are of the cookie-cutter variety; so if you’re looking to rent a house loaded with architectural flash and dazzle, you’re in for a challenge.

Bottom line: If you’re on the lookout for an apartment in a reasonably priced community, Overland Park may be the perfect fit for you.

Best of luck, and happy hunting!

Especially in the southern and central parts of the city, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything other than luxury rentals.

• Finally, 6 and 12-month leases are available at most properties, but you’ll have to fork over some extra dough ($25 to $50 typically) for the 6-month varieties. Month-to-month leases are practically nonexistent, as are studio units.

Tips for Tenants
+

Before packing up shop and heading out to the outskirts of BBQ heaven, there are a few things we think you should know about leasing an apartment in Overland Park:

• Leasers pay an average of $1000/month.

• The demand for apartments frequently outweighs the supply, and units aren’t always available at prospective tenants’ first choices. Most landlords will require leasers put in a formal bid/application 60 days before their move-in date, so don’t stroll into town expecting to find a place right away. And if you come across a rental property that you can’t live without, don’t mull it over for too long, because it might not be available for long.

Picking the Right Stomping Grounds

Generally speaking, the northern sections of town like City Center and Antioch serve up apartments in the $600-$700 range, while units in the more southern ‘hoods like Morse and the Nieman District go for closer to $1200. Most of Overland Park’s 40-odd ‘hoods have a similar ambiance, though, so don’t expect to notice many radical differences in the different parts of town while apartment hunting. New houses are constantly springing up all over Overland Park, meanwhile, and many of them are of the cookie-cutter variety; so if you’re looking to rent a house loaded with architectural flash and dazzle, you’re in for a challenge.

Bottom line: If you’re on the lookout for an apartment in a reasonably priced community, Overland Park may be the perfect fit for you.

Best of luck, and happy hunting!

    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 about the methodology on our blog.

    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.

    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.

      • The highest-rated categories for Overland Park were jobs and career opportunities, commute time and quality of local schools, which all received A+ grades.
      • The areas of concern to Overland Park renters are public transit (F) and recreational activities (D).
      • Overland Park did relatively well compared to similar cities in the central U.S., including Omaha, NE (B-), Saint Louis, MO (C+) and Oklahoma City, OK (C+).

      • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction include Scottsdale, AZ, Irvine, CA, Boulder, CO and Ann Arbor, MI. The lowest rated cities include Tallahassee, FL, Stockton, CA, Dayton, OH, Detroit, MI and Newark, NJ.

      Renters say:

      • "Love almost everything about it, except the cost of living is pretty high." – Victoria B.
      • "I love that there’s easy access to just about everything, but it’s not a great scene for young, single 30-somethings." – Erin N.
      • "I love my city because for the most part it’s very peaceful and the people are nice. But I don’t like the fact that the crime rate seems to be going up." – Meshia
      • "The community is more like a small town and is centrally located to shopping, restaurants and highways. But the city has an extensive number of ordinances about nearly everything and sometimes they can seem pretty extreme." – Nicholle R.
