City Guide
Moving to Belleville

Start your apartment search by looking into neighborhoods that will be an easy commute to and from your job. Remember, the more you restrict yourself to a certain type of community, the more time you will need for house/apartment hunting, so be more open-minded if you're in a time crunch. Finding affordable serviced apartments or rental houses is another challenge to consider. Fortunately, the cost of living in Belleville is cheaper than anywhere else in Michigan, and that includes real estate, utilities, and transportation. Belleville features a high vacancy rate, which is great for potential renters, since this index indicates how easy it may be to locate rental apts.

Tips for a Smooth Transition

Gather your important documents for relocation, including your credit report and personal identification. If you are moving from another state, research income tax rate differences, property and sales taxes rates, and drivers license transfer procedures before your move. Any pets traveling with you will need their shots completed ahead of time.

Neighborhoods of Belleville

Belleville isn't a large place, and its "neighborhoods" are actually the cities of Romulus, Wayne, Ypsilanti, and the township of Canton. With an average travel time between them of only about 14 minutes, you're never too far from the people you want to see and the things you need, even if they're technically in another city. Each community provides a unique set of living options and a different vibe.

Romulus: Home to Wayne County Airport, this large suburban city boasts prime transportation access. Homes feature older and newer models of every description. You will most likely find a duplex for rent in this community.

Wayne: This community is located north of Belleville with several parochial roads leading into it. This community has many ranch style, multi-level homes, apartment complexes and rental condos.

Ypsilanti: Ypsilanti is west of Belleville, accessed on US Route 12. This city has beautiful, spacious homes on equally spacious plots of land. It may be possible to locate 3 bedroom apartments here for rent.

Canton: This community is fast-growing and one of the largest townships in Michigan. Located north of Belleville, homes in this city are distinctly large, elegant models with immaculate front lawns. Good searches will likely turn up a few condos or all bills paid apartments.

Living in Belleville

Belleville is the center hub of activities -- all roads leading in and out of its core are easily traveled, making for a sane daily commute to work, as well as easily accessible shopping and dining options. The heart and soul of Belleville is its bustling business district, and if you want to make new friends in a leisurely environment, the lakefront shops and restaurants in downtown Belleville are where residents hang out a lot. The annual Strawberry Festival is a beloved event, with major media coverage. The while the city can be considered the birthplace of techno music, its local symphony band and jazz band performances are also popular throughout Michigan. This charming lakefront city has the vitality of a growing metropolitan area.

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.
