Life in Laurel

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

Hop off the train halfway between Washington and Baltimore, and you’ll find yourself in the happy little city of Laurel. This community has a small town atmosphere with a couple of community colleges, a local theater scene, and year-round festivities. Rental properties come in all shapes, sizes, prices, and locations, giving you many different options to consider.

You can find some great rental properties by the golf course, the lake, the river, the historic Main Street area, the college center, and everywhere in between.

Off of Cherry Lane is Laurel Square, an open-air multi-use shopping center with plans for a movie theater, health club, and restaurants. Here, you can already find luxury hotel-style living at the Emerson at Cherry Lane. Ridiculously lavish amenities in this high-rise building include a resort-style swimming pool, spa, health club, business center, game room, movie theater, Zen garden, yoga room, rose garden, maid service, pet service, trash valet, laundry service... and the list goes on. Steward Manor is another luxury apartment building, with its own resort-style amenities right by Laurel Lake.

If luxury isn't your priority, then keep an eye out for cheap apartments, townhouses, and rental homes. There are lots of delightful little brick apartment buildings and townhouses with historic character in this price range, as well as some newer properties for those who prefer modern style and modern energy efficiency.

Outside the swimming pools and spa's of luxury apartments, you can still find plenty of convenient and more practical amenities. Things like laundry facilities, BBQ pits, picnic areas, playgrounds, and parking are common. Also, most apartment communities feature units with a fireplace and sometimes even a washer & dryer.

Need a pet friendly property rental in Laurel? No problem. Laurel has a good selection of pet friendly apartments and houses for rent. From luxury apartments to cheap apartments, rental homes to townhouses, there are plenty of places that proudly advertise "pet-friendly". Some rentals accept only cats, however, the majority are dog friendly as well. Expect to pay both a non-refundable pet fee and pet rent for each of your furry family members.

That's the swing of things in Laurel these days. Have fun on the apartment hunt and best of luck!

    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 about the methodology on our blog.

    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.

    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.

    November 2020 Laurel Rent Report

    Welcome to the November 2020 Laurel Rent Report. Laurel rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Laurel rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

    Laurel rents increase sharply over the past month

    Laurel rents have increased 0.6% over the past month, and are up significantly by 4.4% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Laurel stand at $1,397 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,665 for a two-bedroom. Laurel's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 0.1%, as well as the national average of -1.4%.

      Rents falling across the DC Metro

      While rents prices have increased in Laurel over the past year, the rest of the metro is seeing the opposite trend. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the DC metro, 8 of them have seen prices fall. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

      • Frederick has the least expensive rents in the DC metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,607; the city has also experienced the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 4.7%.
      • Over the past year, DC proper has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 11.6%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,656, while one-bedrooms go for $1,637.
      • Arlington has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the DC metro, with a two-bedroom median of $2,154; rents went down 2.6% over the past month and 10.6% over the past year.

      Many large cities nationwide show more affordable rents compared to Laurel

      As rents have increased significantly in Laurel, other large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Compared to most large cities across the country, Laurel is less affordable for renters.

      • With cities across the state seeing rent prices falling significantly, Maryland rent trend as a whole has logged 0.1% year-over-year decline. For example, rents have fallen by 2.2% in Baltimore.
      • Laurel's median two-bedroom rent of $1,665 is above the national average of $1,101. Nationwide, rents have fallen by 1.4% over the past year compared to the 4.4% rise in Laurel.
