City GuideLake Charles
Warm greetings, and welcome to the one-stop shop for your Lake Charles, Louisiana apartment scavenging adventures! Situated on the southwestern edge of the Bayou State just 30-odd miles from the Gulf of Mexico. So what do you say? Are you ready to find a primo crash pad in Cajun Country? Then stick with us, and we guarantee you’ll be living it up in Lake Charles in less time than it takes to suck the head off a Zatarain’s-flavored crawfish at a good old-fashioned Louisiana crab and crawfish b...
Lake Charles is Hip

It’s true, mes amis. As a Lake Charles resident, you’ll be able to enjoy and partake in more than 75 festivals each year, a vibrant nightlife scene, and live music playing at virtually every corner (hope you like rhythm and blues!). The city also boasts numerous Gulf beaches, trendy restaurants, quirky downtown shopping destinations, a legendary waterfront boardwalk, and arguably the coolest-named body of water on the planet, the Contraband Bayou. Besides, you know you’ve officially made it as a crazy-cool city when the Band, Steve Earle, and Lucinda Williams all name-drop you in song.

Featuring a variety of casinos, arts centers, theaters, historic shopping districts, pubs, clubs, resorts, and seemingly endless miles of natural habitat, Lake Charles truly has something to offer for everyone. Bottom line: Why not venture away from your apartment now and then and experience the various attractions your fair city has to offer?

Lake Charles is a Renter's Market

Rent specials pop up frequently and waiting lists are rare. Rental houses are difficult to come by in Lake Charles, and the few that become available are never on the market for long. If you’re hell-bent on scoring a freestanding house instead of a traditional apartment, you’ll have to target the more suburban, sprawling subdivisions further from the city center.

Lake Charles is the Big Easy

Actually, New Orleans, located a couple hundred miles to the east, is the Big Easy. It doesn’t get much easier, though, than renting an apartment in Lake Charles. You should be able to score your dream pad with nothing but the basics. Just bring along a list of previous residences and proof of income, and (as long as you have at least a semi-respectable renting/credit history) you’ll be living the dream in Festival City in no time.

Lake Charles is Sprawling

Most of it is, anyway. The downtown area is built for sidewalk surfers, pub crawlers, and all other types of foot traffickers, but the majority of Lake Charles is so spread out that you’ll need your own set of wheels to work, shop, bank, dine, play, and just plain live conveniently. The city does provide a public bus system, but it’s extremely limited and runs just five routes. Fortunately, traffic is minimal (the average commute to work takes barely 15 minutes) and parking is ample, even in the hopping downtown area.

Final Thoughts: Common Sense is King

We’ve said it about a googolplex number of times, but we’ll say it again: Use common sense before attaching your John Hancock to a lease and make sure you understand every last detail. Most Lake Charles apartments are pet-friendly, but many aren’t, and landlords have different rules regarding roommates, barbecue pits, smoking, and even visitors in some cases. Also, take your move-in checklist seriously and examine every last nook and cranny of your new domicile for even the most minor blemishes (which could affect whether or not you get your security deposit back).

And on that note, you’re all set to embark on your apartment hunting adventures, so welcome to Arcadia 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 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.
