City Guide
Flint
Cost

The cost of living in Flint is more than 20% lower than the average American city, and property prices are among the cheapest anywhere. You can literally buy a sizable single-family detached home for less than the price of most Chevrolets (16-18 grand in many areas), while the average rental unit goes for less than $400.

Bumming Around the Town

You’ll probably want your own set of wheels to get the full Flint experience. The city is so spread out that in order to shop, bank, work, and socialize conveniently, a car of your own is the only feasible option. The Mass Transportation Authority buses do service the inner city and central suburbs.

Snagging Some Dynamite Digs

If there’s an easier place in America to score an apartment, townhouse, or traditional housing unit, we’ve yet to find it. If you’re interested in leasing a freestanding house rather than a traditional apartment, you’re in luck. Prices vary depending on size and location, but it’s common in Flint to come across 2BR houses that cover approximately 1000 square feet for $500-$600 and 1 BR townhouses or ranch homes for around $400.

One thing you should about residential properties in Flint is that they tend to be well established or even historic. In fact, less than one percent of homes and apartments were constructed in 1995 or later, while nearly 90 percent were built prior to 1970. Most apartments are well kept, though, and you can even find some luxury units with all the flash and dazzle of a typical modern crash pad.

Got it? Good. Stay cool, peeps, and welcome to Flint!

November 2017 Flint Rent Report

Welcome to the November 2017 Flint Rent Report. Flint rents declined over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Flint rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the state and nation.

  • Dearborn, Ann Arbor, and Westland have all experienced year-over-year growth above the state average (5.9%, 4.5%, and 2.7%, respectively).

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.
