What locals are saying

Greetings, ladies and gents! A little birdie told us you were in the market for a killer crash pad in Lansing. Good call! It's arguably Central Michigan’s most aesthetic and affordable community. Sound like your cup of tea? Then journey on, because your dream apartment is just a hop, skip, and a jump (or a few simple clicks) away…

Because the city’s winter months are unforgiving, the bulk of Lansing’s daytime activities are best enjoyed between mid-March and early November

What Renters Say about Lansing


Apartment List has released the results for Lansing from the third annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. This survey, which drew on responses from over 45,000 renters nationwide, provides insight on what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the country’s 111 million renters.
"Lansing renters report general satisfaction with their city, but rank extremely low in plans for homeownership," says Andrew Tam, Vice President of Data Science at Apartment List. "The US renter population is at its highest level in 20 years, and while Lansing does a good job of meeting the needs of this highly mobile demographic, its very low ranking in plans for homeownership may result in renters moving away in the long term."
