Ellicott City: George Washington slept here. So did Henry Clay, Davy Crockett, Robert E. Lee, H.L. Mencken and Washington Irving. Scores of historical figures have stopped by Ellicott City; whos next?

Consistently ranked by Money Magazine as one of the "Top 10 Best Places to Live" along with its sister city, Columbia, Ellicott City is lauded for its rich history, charming downtown, arts and cultural offerings, variety of housing options, and thriving job market. A diverse demographic of workers from the Fort Meade Army base and National Security Agency are joined by commuters to Baltimore and Washington, D.C., both of which are within an hours drive or train ride. Throw in affordable housing and excellent schools, and Ellicott City, one of the nations most prosperous towns, becomes an ideal living environment for its population of nearly 70,000. Why not become a part of it?

Having trouble with Craigslist Ellicott City? Can't find that special apartment for rent on Apartment Finder or Zillow? Apartment List is here to help!

Taking the time to educate yourself about the finer points among these two planned communities can help you narrow down your options.

While the mean cost of living in Ellicott City is slightly higher than the national average, living here is still considered a deal. After all, four prominent mentions--peaking at 2nd place in 2010, and hovering at 8th as of 2012--as a "Top Place to Live" by Money Magazine, hold some serious sway. So while you likely wont have to drain your childs retirement fund to move here, your savings account will likely take a small hit. Its a strong housing market, so at least you can think of it as a solid investment.

Theres no particular ebb and flow related to college students or seasonality here, so any time is a great time to start your apartment or home search in Ellicott City. Just give yourself enough lead time to figure out where you want to live and how much you want to spend before hitting the open houses.

Ellicott City is a desirable place to live, and an increasing number of families have their eyes on moving here; they may also have their eyes on the same apartment for rent or home as you do.

Also, know just how much you are prepared to spend. In the heat of a bidding war, things can move pretty fast. Protect yourself from that middle-of-the-night gasp-worthy moment when you realize you bought the home of your dreams at a price tag you cant afford by setting a budget in advance, and then sticking to it.

While Ellicott City is located below the Mason-Dixon line, residents still enjoy all four seasons. "Enjoy" may be pushing it when it comes to the hot, humid and rainy summers, but fall and spring are generally appealing, and winter brings occasional snow. You may be able to get away without snow boots in Ellicott City, but rainboots are a must have, with between three and five inches of rainfall every month.

Flood insurance is a popular--and wise--investment around the parts if you are looking to buy a home, particularly in the Historic District. The towns waterfront location makes it a prime candidate for weather-related flooding; residents still talk about when Hurricane Agnes put Main Street underwater just over 40 years ago.

Howard Countys public schools, of which Ellicott City is a part, are rated 2nd among Maryland public schools, so kids can get a premier education on your tax dime. In recent years, the city has undergone some controversial redistricting hubbubs so be sure to do your research in advance if you have your heart set on a certain school as the times may be achanging.

In Ellicott City, youre not only paying for unofficial membership in a great community, but also for premier access to downtown Baltimore (11 miles) and Washington, DC (30 miles). Both 40E and I-95 are just a hop, skip and a jump away. While Historic Ellicott City is immensely walkable, having a car is instrumental to getting around outside this main street area. And whether you work in town or join the throng of northbound or southbound commuters, you are certain to be in good company in Ellicott City.

    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.
