City GuideLowell
Lowell may not be the biggest and brightest of Massachusetts cities, but it has a certain cultural charm and a past brimming with historical significance. Nicknamed "The Spindle City", Lowell made significant contributions to the American industrial revolution as a center for textile manufacturing, and was one of the first planned industrial communities. Though its mills and factories have been shuttered since the end of the Second World War, Lowell pays homage to them with a whopping 39 nati...

Some Quick Lowell Basics

I’d like to wow you with more interesting historic tidbits, like that Lowell was the first U.S. city to have phone numbers, or that it’s the birthplace of Jack Kerouac, but that isn’t terribly useful information for someone who’s looking to relocate. Instead, here are some things that may be more of interest to you.

The Atmosphere: Historic architecture is something you’ll find a lot of here. Many old buildings, houses, and factories dating back to the early 1900s are still standing today and many have been converted into small businesses, offices, or apartments. The city also lies at the converging point of two rivers, allowing for bridges, canals, and nice riverside views.

The Transit: Since Lowell is often considered a suburb of Boston, it stands to reason that many commuters live there. The Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority operates the Lowell Line between Lowell and downtown Boston. In addition, Lowell has its own regional bus system around the city and surrounding cities, as well as free streetcar shuttles between areas of interest downtown.

Apartment Hunting in Lowell

Here’s the part you’ve been waiting for. You’re lucky to be looking in a place where over half the population rents, so there will be many options to choose from. Trends in pricing and quality become apparent as you look at places, but how do you even get started? While it’s easy to hire a broker, it can often be a pricey option and is best avoided unless absolutely necessary. Locals recommend Lowell’s free monthly apartment guides, as well as Internet resources, to be your best bet for hunting.

Prices: One of the city’s biggest draws is its low housing prices, compared to Boston and surrounding cities. Depending on type and quality, a standard two bedroom apartment can be anywhere in the low 1000s per month, while smaller places, like studio apartments, can generally get down to 600 or 700 a month.

Types: Apartments are much more common than rental homes or houses, so expect to find a lot of medium-sized complexes and many older houses that have been converted into 2 to 4-flat buildings and condos. These all come with standard kitchen appliances and usually have building laundry facilities or in-unit laundry. Decks, yards, and balconies are not uncommon, especially in pricier places.

Utilities and Fees: Finding a utilities-included apartment in Lowell is not unheard of, but may require some deeper searching. You’re most likely to find heat or gas (for heat, hot water, and stove) included, if anything, and that’s often because the apartment is an older one with landlord-controlled radiator heating.

Neighborhoods in Lowell

Lowell has eight official neighborhoods within city limits. Here’s a brief overview of each one’s character, general feel, and housing.

Downtown: Lowell was one of the fist planned industrial towns, and downtown was at its center with textile factories, warehouses, and canals for shipping materials. Now that all that’s long gone, the downtown area is a historic district and the city’s cultural center. Some things you’ll find here: luxury loft apartments, historic houses, local shopping, cultural events and festivals. This area is easily walkable and near the train station.

The Highlands: On the southwest side of the city lies its largest residential neighborhood. The Highlands is commonly split into the Upper and Lower Highlands. The Highlands has a very suburban feeling to it. Winding streets lined with single-family homes take up the majority of the area, with the occasional park or shopping plaza. Expect to find more spacious apartments, rental homes and some town houses here.

Centralville: Centralville lies across the river on the northeast side. It’s another residential area with old vintage houses. The available apartments are mostly 2 to 4-flat buildings and small complexes.

Back Central/South End: Just south of downtown lies the Back Central/South End neighborhood, one of the city’s first residential areas. There’s more of an urban feel here, with lots of historic architecture and vintage residences, as well as older and larger apartment complexes. The train station is close by for commuters.

Belvidere: Historically a more desirable neighborhood, east of downtown. Belvidere is known for its architecture and large, Victorian houses, some of which are now converted into apartments.

South Lowell: Anotherresidential area of the city a little further from downtown. A little sparser, a little woodsier, but still plentiful with apartment complexes, both large and small, as well as some rental homes.

Pawtucketville: A very large area northwest of downtown, across the river. Pawtucketville contains a tightly packed area of neighborhoods on the south, with the Lowell-Dracut-Tyngsboro State Forest to the north. Many different types of apartments available here.

The Acre: This is neighborhood close to the downtown area. Has smaller buildings of two or three apartments each.

Lowell has been a great many things over the years, and is widely known for its history and culture, as well as its proximity to Boston. Now that you’ve got the down-low on Lowell, it’s time to get down and check it out!

    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.
