City Guide
Elkridge
Moving to Elkridge

If you want to move to Elkridge, you’re in luck because there are a lot of great houses and apartments available.  The slight downside is that they’re not exactly cheap. Like most landlords and apartment complexes, you should have a monthly income that is at least two to three times more than your rent, although that’s not usually a problem for the more affluent residents who tend to live here.  It’s also important to have a good job history and rental history as well too; Elkridge wants the kind of residents who will take pride in where they live and not skip out on paying the rent.

If you need help finding just the right apartment for rent, check with an apartment locator. They’re more familiar with the area and can help make a match between what you’re looking for and the apartment that might be the perfect fit. If you have pets that you want to bring along, you may need an apartment locator to help you find one – but there is such a place out there, so don’t despair! You may just have to pay extra security deposits and/or increased rent. Options like all-bills-paid apartments may be hard to come by, but it never hurts to ask.

Life in Elkridge

Elkridge has a lot of history, and from the start it was pretty fancy and exclusive. Wealthy businessmen and their families from Baltimore spent their summers here, but Elkridge as a whole became a lot more accessible when the Thomas Viaduct opened in 1836. Today there may not be any land masses keeping people out anymore, but the relatively high cost of living and desirable stock of older homes means that this area isn’t for everybody – but maybe it’s for you.

The biggest advantage of life in Elkridge is how close it is to two major cities, Baltimore and Washington DC. You get to live in a quiet, safe area, while still being close enough to big cities for all the job opportunities, history and culture you need.

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.
