What locals are saying

Essex: “Home of the Ballestone Mansion, a historic place!”

If you are looking for a place with the serene atmosphere of a rural community, mixed with the convenience of modern living, then Essex is the place for you. Luckily, we have all of the information you need to find an apartment in Essex, MD. Located in Baltimore County, Maryland, Essex is not officially a city; rather, it is a census-designated place, mapped out for the purpose of gathering statistical data on the residents. More than 39,300 people call this quaint little community home. The origins of Essex, an unincorporated community, stemmed from the desire of Baltimore residents in the early 1900s to have a place outside the city where they could enjoy a more rural way of life. Weather-wise, the summers get pretty hot, with temperatures that average 80°F in July, and a chilly 36°F in February.

Finding an Apartment in Essex

The cost of living index for Essex is on par with the median for the rest of Maryland, and 25 percent above the national median. Rental housing prices in some parts of Maryland are right up there with the highest in the nation, but the good news for those looking for an apartment in Essex is that the median rental rate here is almost 30 percent lower than the Maryland median. Also, the owner-occupied percentage here is not as much as that of most cities, with almost half of the residential property renter-occupied. Some cities have as much as a 92 percent owner-occupancy.

One thing to note is that a high renter occupancy does not automatically translate to a high number of available rental properties. This is definitely the case in Essex, with a low 4 percent rental vacancy level. A low rental vacancy in any community puts more pressure on renters who have to work harder to find good rental property. Fortunately, we have some tips to help improve your chances of finding a sweet piece of Essex to call your own.

Features and Amenities Make a list of all of the features and amenities you prefer in an apartment. For instance, some rental packages include utilities like electricity, water, and gas in the rent, meaning you don’t have to pay for one or two of those utilities. Such a perk adds up when you calculate how much you’ve saved on gas, electric, and water bills at the end of each payment cycle. Other amenities and features provided by certain apartments include perks like a fitness center, wheelchair access, a pool, and a fully (or partly) furnished apartment. An apartment that comes with basics like a microwave oven, refrigerator, carpeting, dishwasher, gas cooker, and even a television, will save you some money in furnishing.

Parking The availability of parking on the apartment premises, such as a parking lot or garage, can also serve as a deal breaker for some people. One of the things that might influence your choice of rental property might include whether or not you will have a parking spot when you move into the apartment.

What you Need Most of the landlords, or rental managers, in Essex will ask you to fill out a rental application, require a security deposit, and will also carry out a credit check. You will also need to pay the first month’s rent, and provide proof of income, usually your pay stubs or other evidence of steady income.

Neighborhoods in Essex

Hyde Park: Let’s start with the most expensive neighborhood in Essex. The rental housing here is definitely two, or even three times more than some of the other neighborhoods in the community. Most of the residential homes here are single-family units, row houses, attached homes, and townhomes. The reason for the relative high cost is mainly because Hyde Park is a waterfront neighborhood, with stunning scenery, and a resort-like atmosphere that attracts lots of visitors.

Town Center: This is a very affordable part of town, with studios, one to four bedroom single-family homes, and townhouses.

Middlesex: Rental prices here fall into the median for Essex, with single-family homes, and townhomes.

Life in Essex, MD

The most striking thing about living in Essex is the effect the close proximity of the community to water has on the area. This means lots of water-skiing, fishing, laying in the sun by the beach, fresh seafood, and, of course, tourists! The drawback is the long commute to work, as much as 31 minutes. Even though most of the residents in Essex have their own private automobile, a significant percentage still make use of public transportation. We wish much success in your search for an apartment in Essex!

Social media allows sharing of photos and videos among friends and family.  Memories and celebrations are featured in magnificent locales.  We gawk, perhaps with a shade of envy, at the glamour of these lifestyles.  A yoga pose at sunrise by the water.  Wrapped in a cozy throw while watching migrating geese from the back porch.   A lone line of paper lanterns leading to the pier at dusk.  The proud smile of the kids catching their first fish. A walk in the snow-covered park (practically adjacent to Turkey Point) with the dog.  A lively gathering indoors under the exposed robust, ceiling beams with the fireplace roaring.  A comfort moment in the kitchen where elegance is accented with rustic touches. Relaxing in the soaking tub that is cresting above the painted tile floor.  This house is practically made for Instagram.  If you wonder why you have not seen it in your feed yet, it is only because it simply did not exist.  After a no expense spared, extensive renovation, this essentially new property is only offered for the first time.  Whether you want to “blow up your ‘gram” or enjoy this magnificent estate in privacy, the choice is up to you here.
