City Guide
Baton Rouge
Tips on Renting:

Look for Good Deals : The city is growing at a fantastic pace, and lucky for you, new construction and building projects are managing to keep up. This means that finding an apartment shouldn’t be too daunting of a task, and since there are plenty to choose from, many complexes are waiving application fees or offering specials. Don’t be afraid to name your price – the worst they can say is no.

Beat the Heat : You may be aware that Baton Rouge is located in the southern part of the United States. You may also be aware that the south can get hot. And I mean, hot. Baton Rouge is classified as a humid, subtropical climate. In layman’s terms, this means mild winters (woohoo!) and hot, humid summers (boo). Having air conditioning in your apartment is a huge benefit. Having a pool at your apartment is an even huger benefit.

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Ready to start narrowing down the zip codes? Here’s a brief outline of some of the most promising (or most avoidable) locations to hang your southern hat.

Downtown: Although the downtown area is a popular destination for nightlife and entertainment, not many people actually live here. Construction on condominiums in this area is starting to pick up, but the rent can get a little pricey.

Spanish Town: One of the oldest neighborhoods in Baton Rouge, it’s also one of the hippest places to live. Home to a diverse population of free thinkers, Spanish Town also hosts the largest Mardi Gras parade in the city each year, so you know these residents like to get down.

Mid City: Known as an “artsy” neighborhood, an eclectic group of people call this place home. Due to several urban renewal projects, Mid City has generated an increased amount of interest of late and is an up-and-coming area of Baton Rouge.

LSU: Baton Rouge is home to the beloved Louisiana State University, who’s students all reside in the LSU / Lakeshore area. Although the bars and restaurants are hopping and the lakeshore itself offers many exercise options (walking, running and biking), the population is predominantly young college kids…so take that however you’d like.

Rent Report
Baton Rouge

December 2017 Baton Rouge Rent Report

Welcome to the December 2017 Baton Rouge Rent Report. Baton Rouge rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Baton Rouge rental market, including comparisons to similar cities nationwide.

Baton Rouge rents declined significantly over the past month

Baton Rouge rents have declined 0.5% over the past month, but have increased slightly by 1.1% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Baton Rouge stand at $780 for a one-bedroom apartment and $910 for a two-bedroom. This is the fifth straight month that the city has seen rent decreases after an increase in June. Baton Rouge's year-over-year rent growth lags the state average of 1.7%, as well as the national average of 2.7%.

Baton Rouge rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have increased slightly in Baton Rouge, large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more quickly. Baton Rouge is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Baton Rouge's median two-bedroom rent of $910 is below the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 2.7% over the past year compared to the 1.1% increase in Baton Rouge.
  • While Baton Rouge's rents rose slightly over the past year, many cities nationwide saw more substantial increases, including Phoenix (+3.9%), Seattle (+3.5%), and Dallas (+2.4%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Baton Rouge than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,050, which is more than three times the price in Baton Rouge.

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.
