Finding an Apartment in College Park

Using a Realtor

One of the disadvantages for those searching for an apartment in College Park is the low percentage of available vacant rental properties. With a 2 percent rental rate, those looking for good rental homes in College Park certainly have their work cut out for them. Using the services of a realtor might make it easier to get a place. But if your budget is stretched, you can still look for an apartment yourself. You can look for rental property listings on reputable real estate websites or you could go to the city to look for little hidden nuggets that are not advertised online. The advantage of using a realtor is that they probably have more contacts and know where to find an apartment to suit your specifications.

Rent Stabilization

The city of College Park has an ordinance known as the Rent Stabilization Ordinance, which is meant to protect tenants from arbitrary rent increases. While this applies to single-family homes and similar residential properties, it excludes apartments, motels and so on.

What You Need

Most of the landlords in College Park will require a security deposit, the first month’s rent and for you to fill out a rental application. The requirements for renting an apartment may differ, so make sure you find out what the rental management policies are for any apartment.

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.
