Apartment List Rent Report data is drawn monthly from the millions of listings on our site. 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom rents are calculated as the median for units available in the specified size and time period. Price changes are calculated using a “same unit” methodology similar to the Case-Shiller “repeat sales” home prices methodology, taking the average price change for units available across both time periods.

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released results for Baltimore from the second annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. The survey, which drew on responses from over 30,000 renters, provides insight into what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the 105 million American renters nationwide.

“Baltimore renters seem to be generally unsatisfied with their city,” says Andrew Woo, Director of Data Science at Apartment List. “They gave scores that were below average or substantially below average in most categories.”

Key findings in Baltimore include the following:

  • Baltimore renters give their city an F overall for satisfaction.
  • The highest-rated category for Baltimore was access to public transportation, which received a B-.
  • Renters here seem to be somewhat satisfied with weather (C+), affordability/cost of living (C+), and local jobs and career opportunities (C).
  • Baltimore renters are most concerned with quality of local schools (D), state and local taxes (F), and safety (F).
  • Compared with ratings given to other cities like Washington DC (A-) and Philadelphia (B), Baltimore did not do so well for its renters.
  • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction included Arlington, VA; Lincoln, NE; Pasadena, CA; Boston, MA; and Madison, WI. The lowest rated cities included Newark, NJ; Bronx, NY; Bridgeport, CT; Baltimore, MD; and Salinas, CA.

Renters say:

  • “I like that the city is very metropolitan…You can get to A LOT of places somewhat effortlessly i.e. Uber, free buses (certain areas), public transit (light rail or subway). The job market isn't good, cost of living a little steep, crime is VERY HIGH.” —Veronica B.
  • “I love the fact that I have an affordable apartment. I hate the crime & murder rate.” —Angela C.
  • “The crime is quite bad in parts. There are few grocery stores within my neighborhood, and you need your own transportation to get to shopping centers and such.” —Tanya B.
  • “Resources and activities are limited and/or hard to find. The quality of schools is very poor. The crime rate is high, and overall cleanliness of city is horrible. However, this city is good for public transportation; but it’s dirty in the subway and on the buses.” —Nakiya D.
