City Guide
Dearborn
Motor City Lite

Though Ford is pretty synonymous with the city of Detroit, Dearborn was Henry Ford’s home, and the birthplace of his company in the early 1900s. Today, the city embraces that extremely important historic fact in many ways. Take, for instance, The Henry Ford: the nation’s largest indoor-outdoor museum complex, which spans much more than just the history of the car company. Dearborn isn’t all car-talk, though. Many other regional and national businesses are headquartered in the area.

Public Transportation

While Dearborn doesn’t have its own transit system (why would they? Gotta show off that Ford pride), a handful of bus lines do run through it. The Suburban Mobility Authority for Public Transportation (SMART) operates cross-town buses (to other cities), downtown buses (to Detroit), and commuter buses through popular areas, such as the museum/Greenfield Village, and downtown Dearborn.

Apartment Hunting

Unlike some of its neighbors, only about a quarter of the population in Dearborn are renters. This means two important things: a lot of places, and not a lot of competition! The common rentals are single-family homes. Also, expect to find some town houses/condos, smaller two or three-flat buildings and a few small, low-level complexes, as well as some much larger complexes.

Style and Pricing:

There’s some nice variety in Dearborn pads. If you’re looking for spacious, historic houses, Dearborn’s got plenty of them. The most common rental houses you’ll find are cozy little brick bungalows and ranches, or new cookie-cutter town homes. Very “Metro Detroit”, if you ask us. Apartment-type housing tends to be newer and nicer. No matter what type of housing you choose, you won’t go far over $1000 a month, unless it’s a very nice place or in a very desired area, then expect to pay into the mid 1000s.

Utilities and Fees:

Renting a condo or a nicer apartment is one of the most common ways to get any utilities included in your rent, but with a single-family home, you may be out of luck. However, most appliances (often including washer and dryer), as well as a garage are provided in almost all of these places.

Neighborhoods

What’s known as Dearborn, today, was actually two cities, once upon a time. The dividing point was the Southfield Freeway. The differences between the two sides still show a little in modern day Dearborn. There are many subsections and neighborhood associations, maybe too many to list, so we’ll give it to you in two easy acts with a downtown intermission:

East Dearborn: On the whole, East Dearborn is on the cheaper side. The southeast side of Dearborn is very industrial, with lots of Ford buildings and facilities. The rest of the east side, however, is just as nice as any other place in Dearborn. Further north, you’ll find rows and rows of cozy little houses on tree-lined streets.

Michigan Avenue, the main “drag” of the downtown area, with shopping and entertainment, stretches between the East and West sides. Many of the museums and big attractions in the city are located on Michigan Avenue, or very close to it. On the corner of Michigan and Southfield, the Freeway that splits the city, you’ll see Ford’s main headquarters (or as locals call it, the “glass house”).

West Dearborn: Considered a little nicer and more desirable, West Dearborn is filled with neighborhoods with spacious, historic houses. The Henry Ford museum and Greenfield Village are also on the west side.

Playing a very important role in Michigan history (and United States history…and even world history!) is the little town of Dearborn. It’s a popular stop just outside of Detroit with quite the draw for tourist and resident alike. Why not check it out for yourself?

December 2018 Dearborn Rent Report

Welcome to the December 2018 Dearborn Rent Report. Dearborn rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Dearborn rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Dearborn rents increased significantly over the past month

Dearborn rents have increased 0.5% over the past month, and are up moderately by 3.2% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Dearborn stand at $1,020 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,330 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in September. Dearborn's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.0%, as well as the national average of 1.3%.

Rents rising across the Detroit Metro

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Dearborn, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Detroit metro, all of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

  • Dearborn has the most expensive rents in the Detroit metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,330; the city has also seen rent growth of 3.2% over the past year, the fastest in the metro.
  • Taylor has the least expensive rents in the Detroit metro, with a two-bedroom median of $890; rents increased 0.6% over the past month but remained flat year-over-year.

Dearborn rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have increased moderately in Dearborn, large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Dearborn is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Rents increased marginally in other cities across the state, with Michigan as a whole logging rent growth of 1.0% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 1.2% in Lansing and 1.0% in Grand Rapids.
  • Dearborn's median two-bedroom rent of $1,330 is above the national average of $1,180. Nationwide, rents have grown by 1.3% over the past year compared to the 3.2% rise in Dearborn.
  • While Dearborn's rents rose moderately over the past year, some cities nationwide saw decreases, including Baltimore (-1.2%) and El Paso (-0.2%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Dearborn than most large cities. For example, Chicago has a median 2BR rent of $1,270, which is undefined the price in Dearborn.

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.
