City Guide
A Boundary Unknown

Suitland is one of Americas rare unincorporated areas. This means that its name isn't really Suitland, Inc. But it really means that Suitland doesnt have defined boundaries. Instead, the area features rough boundaries. The size of the city often comes into question, with some Suitland residents stating the citys only 4.2 square miles and some others taking more liberty with the space and claiming its actually 5.6 square miles.

Moving to Suitland

With a large metro area, there are many job opportunities in Suitland.The median home cost with condo rentals is just around average and ownership costing slightly less.

Expect available apartments to require both first and last months' rent, prior to occupation. Ideally, if youre looking for apartments to rent in Suitland, you should give yourself a few months to plan for. Most property owners are going to require that you submit to a credit check, provide your proof of income and, in rare cases, submit to a background check. They may also ask that you provide references, information about your previous address and a 3,000-word, double-spaced document detailing why you want to live in Suitland. (That last part isnt true, but it does paint a picture of the kinds of hoops you may have to jump through to find an apartment to rent). Like many urban areas, property owners are discerning in Suitland, so make sure you have ample time for planning.

Cost of Living

Being that it is just a short 25-minute drive from our nations capital, its no surprise it costs more to live in Suitland. The cost of living is greater than the national average. In general, it costs 18.9% more to live here.Suitland is an in-demand residential area that boasts many quality home rentals and purchase properties.


Before moving anywhere, its important to research local neighborhoods.

Andrews Manor/Manchester Estates: It's home to some hi-rise apartments and a few studios.

Bradbury Park:Bradbury Park is a charming neighborhood, with nearby access to the train. For commuters, this proximity to the train is ideal.

Gordons Corner:The average rental costs, in Gordons Corner, are 67.2% lower than the rest of Marylands neighborhoods.

Dillon Park:This neighborhood houses the Maple Springs Baptist Bible College and Seminary. Rental prices are a bit higher here, with the average rental costing much higher than the rest of the state.

Silver Hill:Dominated by large apartment buildings, hi rise apartments and townhouses, this neighborhood caters to apartment dwellers. Rent costs are moderate and the neighborhood is located on a bus route and features a nearby park.

Parkland Terrace:Parkland Terrace is a neighborhood, with lots of apartment buildings. Buildings are comprised of large apartments and small apartments.


Suitland makes commuting a cinch, with four-lane highways. Its here youll be treated to dense traffic, as you cruise into the nations capital. If youre heading in the opposite direction, enjoy clear roads and high speeds. Traffic in and around Washington, D.C. can become gridlocked during times of heavy commuting. And times of heavy tourism.

You can avoid the headache of gridlocked traffic, on Maryland Route 4, if you choose public transportation. Take the subway, train or bus to get to your job and cut back on your commute time. Despite its moderately small size, Suitland has a large public transit system.

Things to Do

With ample opportunities for shopping and dining, the area is rich with things to do. When dining isnt on the menu, theres time for one of Suitlands two community recreation centers. Shoot some hoops at Bradbury Heights or go back to the future and play a game of hopscotch at William Beanes. The nearby Potomac River offers ample opportunity for fun in the sun, like boating, fishing and swimming.

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.


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.
