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.

"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.

Flood insurance is a popular--and wise--investment around the parts if you are looking to buy a home, particularly in the Historic District.

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.
